First Time Build (Advice needed thanks !)

Hey its my first time posting as well as first time building my own gaming PC.

The components I anticipate to have are:

CPU: i5-2500k

Mobo: z77-d3h

Memory: 8gb (2x4gb) Corsair Vengeance

Case: HAF 912

Graphics: Radeon HD 7850 DCII

PSU: TX650 v2

HD: WD Blue 500gb

Debating 2500k vs 3570k, and z77-d3h vs z77x-ud3h. Missing a SSD, CPU cooler
Still worried about prices (debating between retailers, shipping, tax, efficiency)

Largest problem is trying to maintain sub $700

Thanks any advice would help :P

  1. 3570K to go, similar price and more efficient architecture...
  2. I was debating between those two since they overclock rather the same amount, but temperature wise is a bit different. Is there anyway I can adjust my build to lower the price? :/
