Really going to spend $600, so $100 of that will be for the OS.
Already have a GPU purchased and in hand. Sapphire 7870 XT to be specific. And I am looking to not bottleneck it. So I would like a build to focus on that GPU. Also, I will doing video editing and streams on this system.
I just suck at picking the right parts for the right price. I'm kind of thinking of getting the FX-6300 for the CPU, for the extra cores, which I do indeed plan to put to work. Unless someone can convince me otherwise.
I went for your Thermaltake case (simialr case with AMD lgog as well to consider] and the PSU can CFX the 7870XT
I don't have any specific info on that case but if you like it and its cheap go for might want to read some reviews about it
Went with a 8320 which you can OC to at least 8350 perf and at stock is equal or better than FX6300 due to turbo
Thanks for the suggestions guys. Looking into some comparisons between the CPU's suggested, I think I will stick with the 6300 based on comparison reviews I'm reading. Power per dollar is the reason why. The money saved could go toward a nice heat sink/fan for the CPU to help with overclocking.
Still open for suggestions though. But yeah, bit pricey on the cpu's you guys are suggesting.
The i5-3470 is a better cpu, even with the FX-6300 overclocked, the i5-3470 is a better cpu even if you overclock the fx-6300 to a higher frequency, and it will have a lower power consumption, in the end the intel cpu pays off in terms of performance and in the power bills.
I would opt for the asus p8z77 v lk over the pro 4 though since those have even better power delivery sections than the pro4 (pro4 has similar power section to g41 but has a heatsink for the vrm's)
gigabyte z77 ds3h is a good board too but is missing some back panel IO stuff
Check out the OC recommendations at the far right of the list
Msi z77a-g41 has 4+1 power phases the same as the asrock pro4, z75 pro 3, z77 pro3 , that's why i suggested that one, since with the i5-3470 and the z75 motherboard it's at the same price as the i5-3570k+msi z77, i'd get the i5+z77, though, a step up, is either getting the asus P8Z77-V LK or the Asrock z77 extreme 4 for 60$.
