Ive looked around for awhile and these are some of the stuff ive decided on. Id appreciate all input/suggestion you guys can give me!
Here are some of the stuff i decided to use for my budget of $1500:
Intel Core i7 3770 Quad Core Hyperthreading Processor LGA1155 3.5GHZ Ivy Bridge 8MB Retail
ASUS P8Z77-V Pro LGA1155 Z77 DDR3 SLI 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI SATA3 DisplayPort USB3.0 Motherboard
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM SATA3 64MB Cache 3.5IN Internal Hard Drive
Corsair Professional HX750W 750W ATX 12V 62A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan
NZXT Phantom Full tower.
Now i still need a SSD and some RAM (8/16g both ok), anyone have any suggestions?
and as for the video card, hopefully the Nvidia gtx 670 will be coming out soon.
I'd value all input given, as i am probably a complete newbie at this. Thanks Guys!
ssd: curcial m4 128 GB on a SATA 3.0 slot. using it as a boot drive the difference is DRAMATIC. windows starts up in literally 5 seconds.
RAM: gskill has been perfectly fine for me. alot of people use the corsair dominators.
if it's your first build i reccomned the cheap and reliable 1600 gskills.
