    Looks like a nice build! Everything should work just fine.
  2. If you don't need to overclock and if this is for gaming, just get the i5-3470, also you don't need the hyper 212 evo, the stock cooler is fine for it.
    Check this : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FiWB

    You can find cheaper ram here : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=74758&promoid=1321
    The HDD : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=74462&promoid=1332
    Case : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=66063&promoid=1302
    or if you want a case with side window : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=75047&promoid=1302
    If you don't mind losing the iGP of the cpu, get the i5-3350p : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=75435&promoid=1302
  3. I would cut down to an i5, lose the aftermarket cooler, and get an SSD for OS, programs, and games.
  4. do you need an expensive case? i recommend coolermaster cases 40-60$
  5. I wanted that case because it comes with 6 fans and its really good with ventilation. I want an i7 because i might need that extra power in the future for some programs and such, instead of paying another 300 for an i7. And im not overclocking, so thats why im not getting the "K" version.
  6. Unless you're into editing, the i7 won't bring any advantage, even in the future it won't make it more future proof, buy what you need as of it now, if you need the extra threads for some app, get the xeon 1230 v2, it's the i7 without the iGP.
  7. Wouldnt the hyper threading help in games though?
  8. No, it doesn't.
  9. Nope.
  10. kk ill go with the i5 then. Should i get the EVGA 670 or Gibabyte 670?
  11. Gigabyte, it has a good cooling system and it has also the 680 gtx pcb as the evga FTW.
  12. Excellent! Thanks!
