7970 is on par with it now, for much less.

Ya I know what you mean but you can future proof to an extent. He has no build this is his first.

Okay update on this project. We have received the motherboard which is an Asus Sabretooth Z77. We have the PSU - Corsair AX850 and the CPU - I5 3550 on the way also and I have the case Coolermaster HAF X picked just to pay for it. We also picked up a Liteon iHas-524B. These pieces were all picked up for reasonable prices all under RRP.

So I now need your help in choosing a Hard drive not an SSD for now as well as 8gb of good quality RAM.

How big? For 1TB I'd take either the WD Blue or one of the new Seagates:

Yes a 1TB for now. The seagate is quite expensive but I like the look of the other drive thank you.

An update on this build. I have now paid for the Coolermaster Haf X, Seagate Barracuda 2TB ST2000DM001 and G.SKILL RipJaws X Series 8GB. I am also bidding on a I7 3770K which I'm hopeful of winning as it's only a little bit pricier than an I5 3570K. I ordered an I5 3550 which you can see in older posts but the seller never sent it so I had to get a refund. The other bits I have from before just to refresh the memory is Corsair AX850, Liteon IHas524 and an Asus Sabretooth Z77. Tell me what you think of these items and could you now recommend a Graphics Card?
