More about computer worth
  1. If you are not willing to build a computer yourself I would say go for it, as it a a decently good computer . As for me being a computer builder I would not.
  2. IS it for gaming? If so, its all wrong.

    Get an i5
    get 8gb RAM
    Get a gtx 670

    Will cost WAY less.
  3. You can build a computer that will outperform that (in gaming) for a $1000:

    i5 3570K
    Radeon 7970/GTX 670
  4. Can you guys help me modify this to make it cheaper? And yes its mostly for gaming
  5. switch to the components I listed.
  6. Can you explain to me why i5>i7?
  7. Games do not hyper-thread. An i5 is an i7 with no hyper-threading. Most people with an i7 disable hyper-threading when they game. The i5 is the best gaming CPU. Performs the same as an i7 for way less money and in some instances performs better.
  8. And how about a x79 or z77?
  9. i5 is 1155 socket so get a z77 board if you plan to overclock or an h77 board if you do not.
  10. I'm kind of confused because there's a bunch of z77 boards and i don't know which one to pick.

    i guarantee you wont use the disc drive, you can download hd quality videos or stream them, the gaming case is a bit ott price wise, in terms of graphics card ati radeon 7970, the ram is a bit excessive 8gb would be more than enough, i think youve gone a bit ott on the peripherals as well
  15. This is a new build, idk why it cost more but for this one I don't have to pay for shipping and 5% off. So it totals to about $1580. Is it better?
