Hopefully going to be buying the components for my new pc as my old one is getting a bit dated for gaming(Phenom II X4 B50 + DDR2 ram).
I however will not be buying a new GFX card as i brought one recently (7850 2GB), If you have any experience with this particular parts, or recommend a different product please leave a comment:
Intel Core i5 3570K - $232 (Will be buying a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 pro rev.2 for $30 later on)
Asrock H77-PRO4-MVP - $94
Corsair 16GB (4X4GB) 1600Mhz CL9 (9-9-9-24) (I know this is a large amount of ram, but i realize how quickly the standard changes for RAM + quite cheap. - $99
Bitfenix Shinobi Mid-Tower Case - $69
Silverstone ST60F-P 600W 80+ - $108
Kingston 120GB SSD V+200 - $96
Western Digital 1TB Sata3 HDD 64M Caviar Blue - $72
The budget for this build is $800, and i want it to be a fast responsive machine.
Ahh... Good Build but your Mobo will not let you Overclock.
So, i5 3570k gets wasted.
Get a Asrock Z77 Extreme4
And for the SSD, I'd suggest you a OCZ Agility 4 because that Kingston doesn't provide the speed which is rated on the Product.
Interesting, I read that H77 could overclock the Ivy Bridges but not the previous generation ( but boards must specify if overvoltage is available). One of the reviews on the board i selected talked about the overclock ability on the bios.
Ill take your word on the Kingston ssd, how about this one:
SanDisk Extreme SSD 120G - $96
I'm not sure. But mostly people prefer a Z77 Mobo with a k processor.
And for the SSD. Samsung 830 or Intel 530 would be good.
They have some good Reviews. OCZ is also good.
My bad, The board is a Z77 chipset i just typed it wrong.
And there is a 128GB Samsung 830 SSD for 94 bucks at the moment, but its out of stock. I reckon i will go with the SanDisk one as the reviews are quite good on it and its got a nice 3 year warranty.
Do you reckon that the SilverStone PSU will be enough to power a i5 3750K + PowerColor 7850 PCS+ edition + 16GB of ram?
600w is more than enough. But better to be future proof too.
Even a Good Brand 500w is enough to run your System.
I would suggest you a CX600 or GS600 atleast.
Even a CX500 will do.
And Silverstone do look a good brand but Corsair is better or Must say "Best" in making PSUs.
Okay thanks for your time mate, one last question:
Is the airflow, noise and heat of your PSU quite good on idle/load? i ask this many questions because my last PSU purchase was quite a bad one (coal whine when turned off)
