So i just upgraded my computer to z77-extrem6 and a i5-3570k, i have my fx-8120 and GA-970A-UD3 just lieing on my counter, so i decided to help my friend out and go ahead and build him a comptuer, he is giving me 300 dollars so i just quickly put this build together...
if you have any ideas on what i can do to make it better then please do tell

also can this game run bf3 at medium settings atleast above 30fps?

he is not going to I asked him to so that i could get a 7850 for him but nope, also i don't think he need more than 500gb he can always add more as well

Tiny voices,
nice I like it though i think i will keep my case from before because it has a side panel(he cares about that) and will the 650 ti perform how much better than the 7770?

You won't need to overclock the CPU at all. It will not affect gaming performance really at all. Its a powerful CPU and will be fine with whatever you throw at it. The GPU will overclock decent. The MSI one i posted is known to overclock very well.

ok cool, I will look at that but by the way the 8120 cant take anything you throw at it, it was bottlenecking the HELL out of my 670 like 40% though it could have been throttling even though i never got a temp higher than 60 i dont know

I thought it was a 8350. my bad. If you want to overclock it go for it. It will not bottleneck a 650ti however.
