I'm going to attempt to build my own gaming PC sometime soon and was just wondering if all these parts will go together well and leave room for upgrading in future or if any of you have suggestions that could improve its performance. This is my first draft of parts and am really looking for some advice. cost isn't really an issue as I'll just save longer until I can afford it.
You can save a lot.
First for gaming, the i5 is what you need, cause both are quad cores, you'll get the same performance in gaming, the i7 hyper threading only gets the advantage in such apps like video/image editing.
Also that z77 asus sabertooth is overpriced, an asrock z77 extreme 6 has the same features, more power phases, if you want to buy a ssd, get one with at least 90-128GB, the crucial M4 is a good one for the price, also a good case, it's silent, fits two gfx cards, the noctua cooler ,etc.
So my recommendations :
