Hi i wanted to change my computer, main purpose is to play game on high details. I am not well informed person about hardware, what i found was rankings, and other people's opinions, that's why i am asking for advice. The components i chose are:
graphic: Zotac GeForce GTX 670 AMP! Edition 2048MB GDDR5
procesor: Intel Core i5-3570K,3.4GHz, 6MB, LGA1155, 22nm, 77W, BOX
RAM: Kingston HyperX 2x4GB 1600MHz DDR3
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX2 Intel Z77 LGA 1155
POWER: OCZ StealthXStream 2 600W 80+ SLI PSU 120mm
obudowa: SilentiumPC Gladius M40 Pure Black ATX/USB3.0/SSD
chlodzenie: SilentiumPC Fortis HE1225
HARD drive: Western Digital Caviar Green, 3.5'', 500GB, SATA/600, 64MB
ssd drive: SSD OCZ Vertex3 120GB
DVD drive any suggestions?
DRIVE SSD only for windows/system, i found this model suggested by another person, but personally i'd like sth. similar but from Kingston or Samsung (like Kingston 2.5'' SSDNow V200 128GB (Serial ATA3) or Samsung 2.5'' SSD 840 Series 120GB (Serial ATA3) Basic 7mm)
RAM 8GB, i thought about 16 but friend told my that's unnecessary (i can always but another 2)
No, go for a decent AMD like a AMD FX Vishera 4.0Ghz (4.2 Turbo), its for gaming not editing, but ram, why 6? thats horrible, you're gonna have him get a really good editing/decoding CPU and then short him out on the RAM ? Just go AMD, and I say go with 8gb, 12gb, or 16gb.. plus id recommend a 750 watt or 800/850 watt psu to be safe..
Ok, so i've read your posts and made some adjustment and ended up with:
Procesor Intel Core i5-3570K, 3.4GHz, 6MB, LGA1155, 22nm, 77W, BOX (BX80637I53570K)
Zotac GeForce GTX 670 AMP (zT-60302-10P)
ASRock Z77 EXTREME4
Corsair XMS3 8GB, 1600MHz DDR3, 9-9-9-2, with Classic Heat Spreader
Western Digital Caviar Blue, 3.5'', 1TB, SATA/600, 7200RPM, 64MB cache
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
OCZ ZT Series 650W fully Modular 80 Plus Bronze, ATX12V v2.2 Active PFC
SilentiumPC Gladius M40 Pure Black ATX/USB3.0/SSD ready/3x120mm
Asus DRW-24B5ST SATA
CPU SilentiumPC Fortis HE1225
ive got dillema between:
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX & Asrock Z77 EXTREME4-M (i dont really see the difference in hardware but i see in prize -_-)
GPU dillema ... Zotac GeForce GTX 670 AMP vs Radeon 7970 ... to be honest im actually fan of Nvidia hardware and i saw few rankings and 670 was actually better, but as i see in the internet much more people are recommending 7970
what about GTX 680?
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO vs SilentiumPC Fortis HE1225 CPU Cooler (when ive looked through them hyper is lauder but stronger and silentium is minimally weaker but 10dB queiter?)
firstly for 3570k you should go for th Z77 it would give you more choices and advantages!
also with the other guy we've been telling you not to go for the zotac and you pick the zotac??
look GTX 670 is very powerful and in some games may perfom better giving you some extra FPS!7970 has 3gb memory for higher resolutions and perform better in other games!its actually a matter of chipset and what it can offer!for games check out some trustable Benchmarks and make your choice
when i say trustable i mean that most benchmarks may not be the real truth!
nobody said anything about zotac ...
so basically go for i5-3570 + ASRock Z77 Extreme4
and there is no actual difference between GTX670 and 7970 and all the talk results from people's attachment to the brand? ;p
Honestly the biggest flaw i saw in his build was the OCZ psu. iv had three of their SSD fail on me within 1.5 years. i would recommend a SeaSonic or Corsair. dont want to have your psu go bad, could be ugly
GTX 670 and HD 7970 perform different in all games!its cause the chipset as i mentioned before and many others!i would go for the GTX but HD will probably last longer cause of the +1 vram!its your choice!but i truly believe GTX will give you more power till an 27 inch monitor!nvindia says that can easily handle a triple monitor but anyways!
a bigger PSU wont be so significant maybe a 650w would be more suitable but it wont prevent the performance!in case you overclock the CPU or the GTX you should get at least a 650w...!the samsung 840 series are the most famous and perform pretty well!then you can get a sandisk!they have made a lot of improvement at speed and performance!but firstly you should look for an 840!i
of course i agree with the GTX choice!physx,cuda cores giving more options to pick!
of course working on SLI(not really needed in your case at all)they produce clear power(POWER)!but its not really needed!
