CPU:15-3570k 169.99 (micro center keeps juggling the price on this...one week its 169 the next week its 189 but ill wait till it goes down to 169) http://www.microcenter.com/product/388577/Core_i5_3570K... motherboard:Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H 149.99 (109.99 after the $40 discount) http://www.microcenter.com/product/387556/GA-Z77X-UD3H_... RAM: crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3-1600 (4GB x 2) 39.99 http://www.microcenter.com/product/382101/Ballistix_Spo... video card: sapphire hd 7850 OC 2GB 209.99/MIR 194.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... PSU: corsair hx650 129.99/MIR 119.99 (this should be enough power?) http://www.microcenter.com/product/399154/HX_Series_HX6... optical drive: LG 24x SATA - 15.99 http://www.microcenter.com/product/401744/24x_SATA_Inte... case: cooler master HAF 912 - 54.99 http://www.microcenter.com/product/343331/HAF912_Mid_To... Please let me know what you think. Micro center is having a special when you buy the i5-3570k and a motherboard you get $40.00 off.

I got a combo deal from MC as well. Get this PSU: http://www.microcenter.com/product/399983/Builder_Serie... Buy a video card online. They are cheaper. Look into 7870/ gtx 660ti with the money you saved. Share skullwarrior January 9, 2013 5:10:08 PM thanks for the feedback. ill look into that m 0 l skullwarrior January 16, 2013 1:28:11 AM instead of the ASrock extreme6 i have decided to go with the gigabyte ga-z77x-ud3h http://www.microcenter.com/product/387556/GA-Z77X-UD3H_... from what I was reading online the GB board may not have as much ports/slots but is better quality. With 40 dollars off I'm getting the board for 109.99, I can live with that. still would like any feedback on the build though if anyone can provide that. m 0 l tiny voices January 16, 2013 1:37:07 AM The build looks good. You are way overpaying for the GPU. Microcenter usually has expensive GPU's so go online. You can get a gtx660 for the same price as your 7850 or a 7870 for like 10 more dollars. m 0 l skullwarrior January 16, 2013 1:48:21 AM I forgot to update the gpu but tigerdirect is has a good deal on the 7850. 194.99 after rebate. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... I'm actually trying to stay away from buying parts online, I would like to buy everything local. oh I hate nvidia products, everything I ever had by them has died on me... the 7870 is like in the 250's I don't want to spend that much since the 7850 is in the 190's and still a great card http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car... trying to stay under 800 but you know the lower the better m 0 l tiny voices January 16, 2013 1:54:54 AM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Snag this. 7870 for 209 and 195 after rebate. m 0 l tiny voices January 16, 2013 1:57:31 AM If those bad reviews scare you then here: 7870 for 225 and 205 after rebate. http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=69828&vpn=FX787ACNFC&m... m 0 l skullwarrior January 22, 2013 2:46:32 PM haven't had the chance to do research on the things you linked but ill get to it this weekend.
