I already have the Monitor, mouse, keyboard and headset.
I live in a poorly-insulated unit in a hot climate so ambient temps will likely be in the high-30s celsius until i pick up an air conditioner of some variety. I expect that the HAF-X and the Noctua will be more than sufficient once I lower the ambient temp to around 25 degrees celsius?
Are the on-board network and audio features of the mobo good enough to be considered at least average?
Are there any conflicts, omissions or compatibility issues I may have over-looked here?
Otherwise, just generally speaking, how does the build look to people?
Remember, the main purpose is long hours of graphics intensive gaming
Thanks again for taking the time to look over this for me.
I have updated the original post to include prices.
I dont exactly have a part preference, not AMD or Intel, AMD or Nvidia etc. The build i have listed i chose based upon reviews, for instance I started with the intention of buying AMD since thats what im used to, but it seems the FX-8350, while competitively priced is not as good for gaming, hence the I5 3570k.
The graphics card is another compromise, it seems like it will run nearly as well as a non Ghz (that ones too pricey) 7970 yet do it cooler and for $70 or so less money. So yeah, im not really set on any components, im basically just looking for the best gaming rig for frequent and prolonged use that i can get for 1400-1600. It also needs to run cool.
I intend to play the games at high settings with a decent FPS and be able to do so for the next gen of games hopefully, maybe with another of those 7950 boosts in SLI once the price drops in 6 months or so.
I already have the PSU (Seasonic X-series 760W) keyboard, mouse, headset and monitor.
I would particularly appreciate any thoughts on the onboard sound/Lan between the Gigabyte UD3H and and Asrock Extreme 4.
I am undecided between Cooler Master Haf-X and Cooler Master Storm Stryker for the case.
