I would like to build a system with the most power possible for the money. It needs to be overclock friendly, and I would really like it to include a sapphire 7870 GHz edition and an i5, preferably the one that is on sale at new egg right now.
Yes to the cpu, but no for the gpu, don't get that sapphire, it's plagued by black screen problems/freezes, get another 7870 ghz edition. Also it's 600$ for the cpu and gpu ?
I'm looking for a system for around 600$ that packs the most performance in as possible. If I have to buy components in the future, I don't want them to be super expensive ie: getting an i3 when I can get an i5 now.
It's hard to fit an i5-3570k+7870 ghz edition in a 600$ build, it leaves less than 200$ for the rest, like the ram,cooler(if you want to oc the cpu),mobo(z75/z77),hdd,dvd drive,case,psu and/or os(if you need one).
Things I need now: ram, case, hdd, psu, mobo
Things I can get later: cooler, additional fans, os, drive (i think you can load up an os from usb nowadays)
Even with that it's gonna be hard to not go more than 600 $ :
