Board/CPU/GPU

Hi All, my current system, here, is pretty old. I'm looking to upgrade and wanted to get some feedback on what I'm going with. Thanks for any help.

Unless listed below I will be using my current components.

CPU: i5-3570K
Board: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
GPU: GeForce GTX 660 Ti Superclocked
Memory:G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB)
SSD: Intel 330 180GB SSD

All links are for info, not price. From everything I've read this should be solid. Any pointers are greatly appreciated.

  1. looks solid to me.

    u need any other parts?
  2. I figured I'd be fine using my current cpu cooler and psu, the latter which I RMA'd year before last so it should be good to go, assuming it's powerful enough.

    CPU Cooler: Thermaltake CL-P0114 120mm Big Typhoon

    PSU: OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W
  3. so list me ur full budget and parts u need now.
  4. My budget is somewhat flexible but I'd like to keep it in the $800 range. The parts I need/want are in the original post above. Thanks for the replies, I appreciate it.
  5. no problem.

    do u live close to a microcenter by any chance? theyve got hot deals atm.
  6. Yeah I do, I noticed their price on the cpu was awesome, probably gonna get it there.
