  1. If you don't have the SSD drop it for now and get the i5-3570K and a Z77 motherboard. Avoid B75 if you can help it. You also might have enough left over to get a 7950. That would be a far more ideal setup for your budget.
  2. That'd take me up another 125 making it a bit far off.....what to do what to do.....hmm. I was kinda thinking of getting the rig up and running and holding off on buying a gpu.(I hear the 8000 series dropping soon) Also with the Cat 13.2 drop does that make the xfire more viable with lesser gpu's 7770/7850. I thought about the 7950....then I seen the 7870 le....Also I was trying to keep the cpu gpu raitio in line.

    This will be my first build and I really considering staying clear of overclocking. I really don't wanna fry my new thousand dollar computer.

    If you don't want to do overclocking I'd consider this:

    I can't imagine the 8xxx series will bring anything really new to the table - it will probably be just a rehash of the current generation with slightly faster clock speeds.
