Been reading this forum a lot the last few days trying to narrow down my new gaming build. This is all this machine does so really trying to bleed the most performance out of my budget. I've decided on the 3570k as my CPU and I have a general direction for the rest but having trouble narrowing down the final parts. Any help is greatly appreciated!
This is my biggest confusion point. Seen a lot of 670, 680 and 7970 recommended. I have always been a nVidia fan but I am not against having an AMD card if it's going to provide a better experience. I run a 1920x1200 monitor if that helps narrow the choices down.
CPU cooler is here. you have to email noctua for 1155 mounting brackets to make it work. this is the lga 2011 edition. the only difference between the regular and this is that this has better PWM controlled fans and is currently cheaper. the 1155 brackets are free http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=64540&vpn=NH%2DD14%20S...
