If u dont want to read my rambling, just skip to the pink bold part and the template( which i copied from the sticky)

Thank u guys in advance =)

I used the template i found on the sticky, hope it helps. Just a brief overview of my current rig vs what I've put together so far. Sorry for any English mistakes :ange: 


So ill be travelling to Orlando by the end of july and ill be upgrading my current pc:


CPU: Core2Quad q9550 @2.83 ( runs hot as hell, so never oc it)
GPU: EVGA GTX 670
Mobo: P5q-e
PSU: 850W seventeam
8gb DDR2
1TB seagate


Have been running this config since early 2009( upgraded the GPU last year). Since I can sell it for around 1500 USD here on brazil ( ABSURD PRICING!!!! lol) I`ll be buying a new pc late july this year, when I visit orlando with my sister.

Since there are taxes when i come back to Brazil, i can't really stretch my budget, so 1500 USD is kind of it =)

This are the components I chose, so far:


MOBO: ASUS Maximus V GENE LGA1155 ( $194)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance - 16GB (2x 8GB) ($99)
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K ($319)
SSD: OCZ Vector 128GB SSD ($129)
Corsair H100i ($109)
Asus Blu-Ray Burner ($69) 
Corsair AX850 Power Supply ($169)
GTX 670 ($349)
Seagate Barracuda 1TB Hard Drive ($79)

Total: $1516



I chose the Gene, because 've never used more than 4 Sata in one build, and also will never get more tha 2X SLI( which the Gene supports). This Build will probably stay exactly the way I buy it for the next 3 or so years.

Also, I chose the 3770k over the 3570k for 3D modeling I have to do,(which I have no ideia if it would be benefitial for lol) not for performance in games


I was thinking of buying the Haf 932, that costs around 250 Usd here.


Approximate Purchase Date: End of July

Budget Range: 1500 USD total cost

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Autocad 3d modeling, Gaming, Siemens NX modeling

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:Newegg or tigerdirect(theres a tiger direct store close to my hotel)

Location: City, State/Region, Country - Orlando/Disney

Parts Preferences: by brand or type: Intel/Nvidia

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution:1920X1080

Additional Comments: I will buy the case back in Brazil

Since prices are usually twice as much as those in the US, i was thinking of just buy the PSu and GPU back.

The gTX 670 for example goes for 600 Dollars used.

Also, I might be able to sell for more if I sell the whole thing =)

Is AsRock a good brand? Always have bought asus mobos, looking for something that will last at least 3-4 years and good overclock potential

Also, great site

ASRock, Gigabyte sometimes and ASUS are the top MoBo leaders. MSI is great too.

Is 850W too much?

850W is not too much for your system but it is more than u need

SLI will work with just a 750W PSU

Thank you, u've been really helpful

Will mess around with some info you guys gave me, but would be nice to see some other possible builds =)

I think the main point now is which mobo to get....
The V gene seems really nice, since i don't really need the extra pci, but I dunno if the ROG have better components or if it is just marketing lol

Just get the UD5H from gigabyte, it will be more than enough for anyone's need even if they are trying to get high overclocks

Or you can get the ASrock extreme6 which has better power delivery than the extreme4 and it's price is pretty nice on the budget

After considering what u guys said, I really think I'll go with asus for the MB, as I've used it in several builds, and never had a problem with them... Is this the best Asus MB in the price range?

Other then that, I think I'm set =)

IMO if ur not going tri/quad SLI its a waste of money to get that motherboard, if your not OC'ing ot extreme temps its a waste of money

And now you've dropped down your CPU to an i5, what about your 3D modeling its gonna take a hit in this area since ur not getting the i7 anymore might as well knock the RAM down to just 8GB

If you dont buy BR movies it would be wise to get rid of it for a regular DVD drive

also not to mention that the CX series is just trash, i would only get it on a low budget build and only get the 400-500W if really needed.

just grab this PSU
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-caps...

and lower down the ram to 1600 speed as anything higher will void the warranty on the cpu

Both PSUs are good and will do the job the CX is a Tier 3 and the Rosewell is T2. Only T4 PSUs are trash

Edited: Ment to say T4 and anything below that are trash

I'm just saying that the CX series is not my favorite and it is mostly for low budget builds that can't get a good PSU inside

Is this psu good enough or should i go for the modular one? I want a psu that wont give me problems in the future.
Edit: hadn't seen the Rosewill in the post. Is that better than the corsair?

Guess the p8z77v-le will be plenty. Also got the 1600 rams and the 3770k back

I've got many BD titles, but can buy that later on

TX version is fine, just not my cup of tea because it is not modular but that shouldnt really be a problem with some good cable management
