(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-01-11 17:47 GMT+0000) Here you can see that the bundle is VERY overpriced. These are the same parts with a better CPU cooler. gethinleiba January 11, 2013 4:46:11 PM sorry about the bump but no one replied etc. and i know it is but im not confident in my ocing abilities tiny voices a b B Homebuilt system a b K Overclocking a c 154 V Motherboard January 11, 2013 4:48:23 PM What is the main purpose of this build? gethinleiba January 11, 2013 7:37:33 PM im attempting to get a good pc that will run all current games on max settings and be 'future proof' as cliche as it is tiny voices a b B Homebuilt system a b K Overclocking a c 154 V Motherboard January 11, 2013 8:44:29 PM Get an i5 3570k. There is no difference between an i5 and an i7 when gaming. None at all. It will be much less expensive and still overclock very well. tiny voices a b B Homebuilt system a b K Overclocking a c 154 V Motherboard January 11, 2013 8:45:31 PM What GPU are you planning to get to go with this? Don't forget when gaming the GPU is what matters. An i3 and a 7870 will blow away an overclocked i7 and a 7770. Its pretty much all about GPU. gethinleiba January 11, 2013 9:17:30 PM erm evga 4gb gtx 670 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
