830 > 840 with its TLC NAND, the 830 which is last gen. flagship is a better choice and you can find it for quite cheap these days.

830 is more expensive, actually + 840 is slightly faster.

I'd still take the proven reliable 830 over the 840. The speed difference is inconsequential.

840 is still reliable, but yes, the 830 is just as good.

This is what i got after doing a few hours research, but alas its also 1am, and ive been out of the loop in regards to the pc tech.
So suggestions? Changes? Advice?
Help the noob build hes first pc biggrin.gif
I shall be using this for gaming, editing and some coding and scripting.
Need to know anything let me know smile.gif
Also slight note, ive never overclocked, but i plan to learn.
and lastly i plan to SLI once i get a bit more cash flow, thus the high W PSU.
Save yourself $100 and geth the i5-3570k instead of the i7-3770k. Its just as fast as the i7, but doesnt have hyperthreading.
Get 2 120GB SSD's instead of 1 240gb, and try to stick to AData, Intel, or Kingston.
Dont spent that much on that keyboard, spend MAX $100
Instead of the GTX 660, get the HD 7870. Same price, but loads faster.
Get 1866 ram as that is the max the i5 can actually handle
Good pick on the mobo.

Why would you possibly want two SSDs instead of one? No point in running RAID on SSDs for the vast majority of users, so why deal with those issues? A single larger SSD is the right choice for nearly everyone.

Not really, the 830 has far better endurance and better sequential speeds althrough what matters much is the IOPS, for sure. You will never notice the differences anyway.

Also, I don't see why you would RAID SSDs, one is plenty fast and you won't see any difference... you're just better off going with one single drive that will be more practical.

Alright guys, making my head spin a little >< lol kind of forgot what topic i was in ><<br />
So Ive pretty much got it down i think,
So for the HDD i should go with the blue seeing as its one platter? As isaid, ive never had a blue so would it be better to use then the black? Its seeming to be the case, opinions?
As for the Mobo it seems ill be leaning towards the UD5H more then the other two. But would the extra 40 be worth dishing out to grab the VPro?

Also since everyones talking SSD now randomly lol Would it be better to take the M4 or go with the 830\840 (which ever is cheaper seeing as there relatively the same)

The reason you run 2 is because then you are almost twice as fast, its almost cheaper, and you have the same space. I would pay the extra $10 for 2 instead of getting 1 large one for double the speed.

I would personally go for the AData, either the premier or the normal one is extremely reliable and fast and much cheaper then the intel. Also get the black, simply because its only $10 more for the extra speed and reliability.
The UD5H is a fantastic mobo, dont spend the extra $40 for the VPro, its useless to spend the extra for it.
Also I would change the i7 for the i5 simply because Hyperthreading isnt worth $100.

As for the case, the HAF X is a fantastic option as it will fit the h100 perfectly. The HAF 932 is also good, I personally went with the In-Win Dragon Rider, but I was also considering the Rosewill Thor V2. All the cases I just mentioned will fit the H100 on the top grill.

Any other questions just ask thumb.gif

Yes, get the Blue over the Black until WD finally gets around to upgrading the Black to TB platters.

No reason to pay for the -V Pro, either get the vanilla -V or some other board. The only useful thing you are paying for with the Pro is the extra SATA /USB ports.
