1. pretty good and well rounded. how much does the akasha cooler cost?
2. the regular directCU II card will still be really good, just put a little overclock on it
3. i have no idea the diference, motherboards arent really my area of expertise...

Don't buy a 680. Here's why:

The 680 is only 5% faster than a 670. That drops to 2-3% after overclocking, and it's 25-30% more expensive than one.

If that's not enough to convince you, look at it this way:

Both the 670 and the 680 max out the exact same games equally well. So why would you pay $100-$150 more for basically the same thing?

EDIT: As for the motherboard, I have a used -ud3h sitting around here somewhere from before I got into small form factor computers. I believe the difference is in the number of phase changers, as it was a great overclocker - it got an i5-3570k to 4.4 GHz with lower than stock voltages, and that was just with a Hyper 212 EVO.

Hmm, depends on your cooling situation. The EVGA Signature 2 is bloody amazing, as are the ASUS DC2 and the MSI Twin Frozor IV... but the Galaxy currently seems to be sweeping the crowd when it comes to cooling and overclocking.

Are you only going to run the single card? You only need a 550w PSU, then.
January 28, 2013 3:48:23 PM

single for now ( for 1 2years )

Then it's up to you - you can get a cheaper 550w power supply now, or grab a 750w if you're confident you'll use SLI in the future.

on my country there is no big choices (yes its but when it comes its sell on 0.3sec bc we are waiting too long :=) ) so i can choose gtx670 and 680 igabyte one (but this is expensive ) or asus 680 or msi 670 one for now

If the MSI 670 is cheaper, then go with it - it's a good card, and a lot better value than a 680, as I explained above. (The only time I'd say to get a 680 is if it were basically the exact same price as a 670.)

670 is a better bang for bucks, unless u wangt a 680 to overclock.

but 670 is fine,and can be overclocked easily. and will give u quite good performance.

for less money.

what do think about choosing i7 3770k instead of i5 3570k ?
a b Ĉ ASUS
January 28, 2013 9:41:07 PM

not worth it, unless ur doing heavy video encoding, 3d design, mass photoshop. or sound recording.

i think for the money ur better off with a 3570k

If you're gaming, there's ZERO difference between the i5 and the i7. Hyperthreading helps a TINY amount in some games, but it also hurts in some games, so I'd always recommend the 3570k.

how can hyperthreading hurt u in games? wouldnt it just be disabled if its not supported?

a b Ĉ ASUS
January 28, 2013 11:34:41 PM

^It doesn't get disabled, and there are a few games that "make use" of it, but do it so badly that they perform better with hyperthreading disabled.

is there a on the go app that u can switch off hyperthreading or only via bios?

could be useful. use hyper for encoding or design than switch it off for gaming.

a b Ĉ ASUS

I believe only through the BIOS. Everyone I know with an i7 has two overclocking presets, one for work and one (with hyperthreading disabled and a higher overclock) for gaming.

wish theyre was a program to switch inbetween would be fun.

and useful.
