Hey guys, I could use some help with a building a new gaming rig. Haven't built a new PC since 2007 so kinda out of the loop.
Some of what I list has sales/rebates that are going to end soon. Which brings me to first question, are things like CPUs etc on sale on blackfriday/cyber monday? Never had to check before so I don't know if I should buy soon (if this build works out) or wait till then.
I do overclock but nothing major. For instance my current CPU is a Q6600 2.4GHZ that I OCed to 3.0. My PC builds generally have to last me at least 5 or more years so that's why some of the stuff on my list might be a little more then I need.
One of the main things I need help with is something just doesn't seem "right" to me with this build lol. The one thing I keep looking at over and over the most is the mobo. Any advice would be appreciated.
I think a samsung SSD is a better choice for your gaming rig (look for the "samsung evo" and the "samsung pro series").
I wouldn't choose that grahic card. Look for this one: MSI N770 Lightning
The RAM isn't bad, but I have some bad experience with G. SKILL in the past (of course this doesn't mean the problem will occurs for you to). I have some good experience with this one Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 8GB DDR3-1600 CL9 kit.
For gaming alone the CPU is a little to much (I don't know what you do with your rig besides gaming, but gaming alone the 4770 will be a little overkill). Look for the i7 4670 (K).
If you choose a cheaper CPU you can get a better cooling for your CPU.
