    i would get something like this. i did not put in a case because that is your choice on what you want your computer to look like, but everything else is good. the PSU is bigger than you need but if you plan to upgrade in the future you will always have the power you need :)

    i dont know if you need an OS but i added one, and if you are getting the 3570K i am assuming your OC, so i added an aftermarket cooler

    the mobo is pretty intense for what your putting on it but it has the option to SLI or Xfire in the future, and has a ****load of SATA ports for extra hard drives, SSDs, and optical drives
  4. this mobo could hadle OC and the power supply should allow the GPU to go full blast on this set up?
  5. im not sure if the mobo can do overclock (lol i was rushing a bit) but for the price range it would be INSANITY not to have OC on this thing, ill reserch the mobo more and let you know

    as for the GPU, yes this PSU could handle basically whatever you can give it, it would run the GPU on full, and probably even an OC'ed GPU a bit also


    EDIT: yes this mobo can overclock. some dude got his 2500K up to 4.5 GHz stable
  6. ok. Just need to know about the mobo. like you said it would be crazy not to OC this thing lol. gotta make sure the mobo can do that
  7. ANY Z77 motherboard can overclock a K series processor.
  8. Thanks for the help
  9. i edited my last post, you can OC, now all you have to do is select a case (ATX mid tower) and then your done.

    if you want to get a second pair or eyes on this make a new like "final conformation before buying" thread and see what others think, thats just what i would do. two brains (or more) are better than one
  10. You think a mid tower vuild would allow enough air flow with this build
  11. As long as its a good quality tower, it won't be a problem at all.
  12. with this rig you can play all recent game in high ?

    yes, with the 3570K you can OC, but with stock its still pretty good.

    the 7870 is a great card, you can get some pretty good frames with that
  14. Asrock z77 or asus z77 which do u recomend
