New Build looking for input

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i built my sig last November and now i'm replacing it since my GF wants a good computer so i decided to build another and give her my old one

Currently i'm looking at

i5-3570K Currently 238.99
Z77 Saber-tooth, Deal with i5 for 229.99

Gigabyte 680gtx
529.99 with reference cooler,

I'm not sure if the wind-force 3x is better then the reference design.


Corsair Obsidian Series 650D ---- 159.99

My friend has this case and it looks good and has a lot of space, where my scout does not.

I'm open to suggestions for around the same price range. Also if there is one with a handle that is as large that might be good too as i like to bring my computer to friends houses.


Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H100 ----119.99
Not sure if this is the best choice, I'd also consider air coolers but i'm looking to overclock to about 4.5 ghz 24/7 like my 2500k



Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance Lowprofile 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit
66.89


Corsair TX750 V2 750W ATX 12V
97.99

I'll be using the agility 3 120gb from other build.


1443.83



Any suggestions? is it worth getting the saber-tooth or opting for a mobo like the gigabyte UD5 which is 60$ cheaper. Also for coolers would it be better to get a cheaper one like the Noctua D14

I am trying to figure out how your price was about the same as mine and you had a better case, better GPU, better CPU cooler, And much better mobo, I'm sure there are other things too. Where are you buying these from?

For entry level water cooling with out using like the H70 or something H100 would be a good choice. And why such a big case if you enjoy taking it places?

Currently i have the storm scout and i figured i could just take it instead of the one i'm building so i'm not too worried about moving it around and everything. But i found my current case seemed cramped after adding a second 560ti, and i so i though if i opted for a larger case it would give me more options down the road also the length of the 680 requires a larger case doesn't it?


The prices are all the listed prices from NCIX.ca, i order from them because i live really close and takes about 3 days to get everything
