My brother built me like a upper mid range pc like 5 years ago. I'm going to try to give it a go myself this time. My budget will be around 1300-1600, planning to purchase sometime this week or next week. I won't be buying a monitor, PSU, or OS as I already have those. (PSU is a corsair 750w) Planning to buy the parts from Newegg/Amazon whatever is cheaper. Would appreciate the feedback about the parts I chose. Thank you!
edit:thx for the reply. i'll definitely also put the radeon into consideration. I've also been thinking if I should use a 3rd party heatsink for the CPU instead of the one that comes with it. or should the factory heatsink should be enough?
What are you building this for. If you are doing this for gaming there are a few things you may want to make. First of all get a 3570K a 3770K is too much for basic gaming. It's only worth it if you are doing video editing or major Adobe stuff. Also get a ASRock Z77 Extreme 6 MB. Intel mb are ok but that is better. Also 16 gb is too much ram 8 gb is fine. I would also suggest a cpu cooler. A good one is a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo is good.
