    Very nice!
  2. Great Gpu
    i would personally go with the fx 8350 instead of the i5 because it has 8 cores vs the 4 on the i5. It is also faster in general

    Cores mean absolutely nothing. The 3570k is vastly superior in everything except heavily threaded apps. Have a look at this: http://techreport.com/review/23750/amd-fx-8350-processor-reviewed 3570k is the way to go.
  4. Not a fan of OCZ SSDs. I would have recommended a Samsung 830 or 840
  5. Nice build. The only thing I'd have changed is the SSD. I'd have gone with a bit larger Crucial or Samsung.
  6. But at that price range Crucial is slower. For example Crucial M4 128GB and OCZ Agility 3 or 4 (same price) 120GB. Am i wrong?

    This guy. Please link me to what website it says that the 8350 is better then the 3570k. Please.
  8. I suggest a intel 330 120GB for $100 on newegg
  9. What about Corsair Force GT?
  10. Intel/samsung/cruicial for ssd.
  11. Why is that? They are better build quality? Faster?

    +1 for this.

    More reliable, perform better etc. Just like you go for seasonic or corsair for your power supply not some random one. Hope that clears it up for you
  14. Should i look at the specifications? Like OCZ Agility 3 have 510/555Mbps IOPS: 85K and Crucial M4 have 415/175Mbps. Doesn't it mean OCZ is faster?
  15. But are they the same price and size?
  16. Well OCZ Agility 3 is cheaper, same size.
