    Get this, as both the CPU and GPU can be overclocked past stock settings for better performance in games.

    Edit: forgot to include OS, wait a couple mins as I revise the build
  2. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DnjX The Z75 will not overclock as good as the Z77, but getting the i5 3570k to 4.0 ghz should not be a problem. I changed the case out to save a little bit more money, but if you want the other case back, you can do that if you wish.

  5. My build allows for overclocking but you might want to invest in a better cpu cooler because intel stock coolers aren't highly recommended when oc alot. Plasmas cpu cooler is fine

    $3 off your budget, but I don't think you would mind, right? I offered an even better GPU, better than the HD 7870 XT. My build also allows for overclocking, but you will eventually need a good CPU cooler.
  7. Ya that looks pretty good. I just like to go with a good airflow case, but its always better to improve the gpu
  8. Well on my recommendation
