The Gtx 670s are $400 a piece so sli on those isn't an option

Oops I misread the budget, sorry about that. 1 670 would be better tongue.gif

ahh buying used? I guess you could go used for your CPU and mobo, but personally I wouldn't buy them off of Amazon, I would buy them off of here used. or buy new off of Amazon.

For that money I'd go GTX680, socket 2011 and a 3820.

Next upgrade will be the CPU.

If you have an aversion to socket 2011, do the standard 2600K @ 4.8-5.0 with a GTX680 but I'd go SB-E before I'd go IB.

there will be little difference in gaming performance between ivy, sb and sb-e. And the difference between a 670 and 680 is about 5% at most. 2011 and 680 is not the way to go

You should be good with a GTX 670. The i5-3570k is basically the same as the i7-3770k except no hyperthreading, same as the i5-2500k and i7-2700k. The 'K' indicates the processor can be overclocked. The 3000 series processors are a little better per clock speed (and oddly vastly better if you play Shogun 2:Total War, but not other games I know of), but the 2000 series processors can reach higher clock speeds more easily if you're an aggressive overclocker. I'd pair the cpu you choose with this motherboard ($150) if you want the option to SLI in the future, the same motherboard except -G43 ($30 less) if not planning to SLI in the future:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130645

As for the i7 you linked, it'll be the same as the i5 for gaming purposes, superior in the few situations where you use more than 4 threads (e.g. a few professional applications and not gaming). The reason it's cheaper is because it's used. If you're comfortable with used, sounds like a good deal. Although you can generally buy an i5-2500k new for $200 at us.ncix.com. You might also check OCN marketplace.

I didn't realize you had that much watercooling equipment already. Sorry, can't advise you on getting a new cpu block. I'm sure someone around can.

Edit: As far as mobo goes, there's an Asus P8Z68 V-LX for $75 in the marketplace, though I didn't open the thread to check details.

I would still want 2011 and a 680. 2011 much more potential as a platform.

Grab a 3570K or 2500K/2550K (2550K will OC a little better + no iGPU) with an ASRock Z77/Z68 (Z77 if you go for the 3570K) Extreme4 or Extreme6 and you'll be set. For a CPU block, get a Swiftech Apogee HD or the Apogee Drive II (has slightly better temps than the Apogee HD + an integrated Swiftech MCP35X pump, which is a pretty awesome pump.). On the GPU front, you could get a GTX670, HD7970 (Overclocks really well, can and usually will OC higher than a GTX680, pretty cheap now), HD7870, GTX580/570. In terms of performance out of all of those, the order (from slowest to fastest) is GTX 570 > HD7870 = GTX580 > GTX670 > HD7970. If you don't mind not having a full waterblock in the future, there is always the 6870X2, which slots between the 670 and 7970 in terms of performance, but it's cheaper than both. It does have higher power consumption than both though. The 6870x2 will use a smidge under 300W under load, so keep that in mind if you do go for it.

I can't emphasize enough how foolish this statement is. It'd be ridiculous to upgrade from one 2011 processor to another just as it would be to upgrade from one 1155 processor to another. By the time it makes sense to upgrade, both platforms will have been replaced. Compare what you'd get right now. And there, 1155 is clearly superior. Paying hundreds of dollars for the mere option to do something later that will make no sense anyway is just wasting money.

2011 is superior to 1155 for certain workstation applications. If you're not using those applications, it provides essentially no benefit and is a waste of money.
