Hey guys I know I made a thread not to long ago but I though I'd make another since I've narrowed down a few parts but I need a second opinion. I'm wanting to spend 1500 dollars Canadian and that has to include a monitor keyboard and mouse. Price can vary slightly though it can go over by 100 and I wouldn't mind. The links I'm providing aren't me searching around for best price but rather just to show what I'm thinking about right now.
So for my mother board I was going to go with a ASUS Intel Z77 Express Motherboard. http://
Thing is though I think it's a little expensive and I don't need the integrated graphics. Is there another assus mother board without integrated graphics and with hd sound still on board that is overclockable? That link is a little expensive and I found one for 199 that I think isn't advanced but still has the integrated graphics chip which I don't need.
For a processor I was going to go with an Intel Core i7-3770K Processor http://
I've been told it's not worth it over the I5 series but I don't really want a computer that will lag behind in a few years because I went the cheap route. Is their a significant difference or is it just a waste of an extra 100?
Ram I wasn't sure about but that itself I'm sure doesn't really matter as much as all the other parts. If I can find a deal two 8gigs would be nice but two 4 will do.
For the GPU I really want to go with the new GTX 780. http://
I know it's a little expensive but I'd rather be future proof with a decent single GPU rather then a couple. I'm thinking since this is my first real build a single GPU should be the way I go so I don't want any problems or little hiccups.
For a hard drive I was going to go with a solid state drive but I'm not sure what the good brands are any help here would be great. I plan on adding a TB sata drive later on as a redundant drive but I'll hold off on that for now till later down the line to cut down on price.
I was also thinking the Thermaltake G10 case. Though I don't think it's released yet and is bound to be at least 300 something which really sucks. Though I could go with the all ready release thermaltake level 10 gt snow edition but I like the early better I hope it's out before I build this pc. Any suggestion on what you guys think is cool/affordable would be great.
I'm still undecided on the Monitor and keyboard and mouse haven't delved that deep. But what do you guys think about what I have so far I know I left the power-supply out too but I think the average 650w one goes for 200 something. So let me know guys what you think of it so far any advice on changes or the stuff I haven't included would be much appreciated. Thanks in Advanced.
