Hey there all, looking to build a new computer that is pretty much a beast at running whatever game i want. I'll be playing some Crysis 3 and Far Cry along with SC2, LoL and maybe even some WoW (i would imagine a new MMO if it comes out). My knowledge of computers is probably a little more than basic so if some of the things i chose aren't compatible feel free to let me know. I don't want the computer itself to cost more than 1600. If you have any suggestions please let me know, i'd like to be ordering the parts sometime this week.
i5 - 3570k
Noctua NH-D14 (h50 wont do anything for you lolz)
Motherboard z77 chip you can choose more your preference brand but asrock around 180 extreme 6 i think is good for that price. you could probably afford a better one though.
why are you buying a velociraptor after buying an SSD? just buy some big hdd as secondary 7200rpm
with that said you should be able to get a system for about 1400$
1. im guessing buying a cheaper CPU thats almost as fast (and still a solid processor from what i've read) is the smart choice if i plan to overclock it anyways?
2. Would it be a better idea if i plan to add a second monitor once my comp is up and running to grab the 670 4g?
