i7-3770k + GTX 680 Need a Build Check + Advice - Page 3

post #21 of 23
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K Nice Choice
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - Best bang for the money (Awesome)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($104.99 @ Amazon) Nice
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($63.99 @ Newegg) Won't need 16gig, but why not (RAM is cheap)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.99 @ Amazon) good price and product
Storage: Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($99.95 @ Amazon) I would spend a little more for a Samsung (reliability)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB Video Card ($429.99 @ Newegg) Bad Ass, but 7950 overclocked is almost on Par for only $299 and already saving money to crossfire later
Sound Card: Asus Xonar DG 24-bit 96 KHz Sound Card ($24.99 @ SuperBiiz) Check the onboard, might be just as good or better
Case: Corsair 500R White ATX Mid Tower Case ($101.93 @ Mac Connection) Cool, all preference
Power Supply: Rosewill Hive 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($79.99 @ Newegg) Not a good idea - See comments below

Don't skimp on a good power supply. Most of the guys are correct that a 650-750w should be the sweet spot, but get yourself a better built brand. Corsiar or Seasonic are probably the top two names in dependability and quality. Remember this is the one component that all your other components rely on. No power, no play. Bad power, new parts!
Plus it is the one piece that will last you the longest and not have to be upgraded if a good investment is made. I can't stress this enough!. The rest of the system looks good!

Have fun with the new build!

I'm a system Admin for a global company and I'm just giving good fair advise. I'm not saying it won't run his equipment, but it is the best place to put your money when building a rig. If you want to upgrade in 3-5 years and you don't have to throw money into a better PSU, you will be thanking me later. If you are never going to think about Crossfire or SLI, keep what you have and just take more of a gamble than i would. Take a look at the Seasonic 620. You would have a higher output and better rail than the Rosewell. Just food for thought!

Off the topic, but the 3770k is a sweet chip!
