What do you think of this build? Tags: New Build Systems Last response: January 14, 2013 3:02 PM in Systems Share burbee January 14, 2013 2:33:32 PM So I am going to change everything of my old pc, except the videocard (GTX660) & Case. And I think this will be it: *Will be mainly used for programming (IT Student) / gaming Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z77P-D3 - http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=... CPU: Intel i5 3570K (3.4GHz, unlocked) RAM: 2x8GB Corsair Valueselect CL9 9-9-9-24 GPU: GTX660 ASUS Top edition. - owned PSU: Corsair CX600W Case: Corsair Carbide 300R - owned HDD: Got a previously bought internal 320GB and external LaCie 1TB.. Don't remember the specs But it's enough! I also got the HDD and CD/DVD drive** I live in the Netherlands* So how would you rate it from 1-10 for someone like me? This will cost me around 470 euros, not counting the case and videocard because I already have them. The idea was to max out at 470 but in extreme situations 500.. Note: If you think I don't need to overclock/upgrade in the next 2-3 years, then I won't get the unlocked version probably...

The idea was to stick around 450-500 MAX And do I really have to get an aftermarket cooler? I won't be overclocking in the short period, just gt this so I can overclock after afew years when the i5 starts getting insufficient. burbee January 14, 2013 3:02:36 PM alvine said:8, get an aftermarket heatsink since you have picked an unlocked processor EDIT: you forgot to add a hard drive, no operating system So what do you guys think?
