  2. Hey,

    If you have the slightest urge to overclock then get the 3570k. The board is OK, but would suggest to look at a Z77 chipset board not a z68.

    This is what I would recommend:
    cpu - 3570k
    motherboard - Asus P8Z77-V (or Asus P8Z77-V LX if the Asus P8Z77-V is too expensive)
    psu - Seasonic is probablyt the best, 520w should be fine if you don't plan to add a 2nd 670GTX

    Everything else is good.
  3. neither.

    grabbing a Z68 puts you in the risk of requiring a sandy bridge CPU to update the BIOS to even use that 3570K. it's a better idea to just go straight to a Z77 board.

    the 3470+B75 is fine. it's all really just a question of whether you wanna overclock that CPU or not.
  4. I go with the first build but get this motherboard mobo:ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
