So I am going to be buying a new rig to build this weekend. Here is what I have so far.
CPU: i5-3570k - $189.99
Mobo: Asrock Z77 extreme 4 - $79.99 (Microcenter is giving 50 bucks off if you buy a CPU with Mobo)
Case: CM Storm Enforcer
GPU: EVGA 2gb Geforce 660
Ram: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600
How big of a PSU do I need? I will do some OCing but not crazy stuff just for best performance in gaming. Also, I was wondering if you would recommend I get a Gigabyte UD3H mobo instead of the Asrock. Its only 15 dollars more.
So you want a modular psu ?
This one is good : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It allows you for even two 660 ti in sli.
Also for now 8GB of ram is suffice, the crucial in microcenter is dual channel, the vengeance might not be a good choice if you want to add later an air cooler because of the tall heatsinks.
Ok! thanks for that PSU recommendation I will go wit htat Rosewill. But since I am going to order it from Newegg. Should I go with this RAM since its lower profile. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... I was only getting my RAM from Micro Center b/c of waiting for something to ship. But that Rosewill PSU is a better choice than what MC has at my local store.
