Is there a better choice for these parts - Page 2

post #11 of 20
at that pricepoint..
I'd get one of these for PSU

I'd get the Biostar board over the Asrock..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138355 It may be a wee bit more..but they use better stuff on their boards.
I've had an ex3 gen3..eh..It's an OK board..boots fast..never really did any heavy-duty on it.
Biostar board looks like it would handle heavy-duty better.They have better quality chokes and better customer service,too.

here we go: round two!

CPU:2500k
GPU: GTX 670 FTW
Case: ?
psu:?

Why not just go with TinDaDragon's earlier advice? Use your original choice for the motherboard and instead of the 2500K, go with the 3570K.

If you only plan on single GPU, get the HIVE 550W PSU from Rosewill, save some money

Get the ASRock Z77 Pro4 as well. $34 off

The Corsair PSU is a solid choice.
