@ ADHDadditiv

What does Adata mean? Is that a SSD? If so i think i remember reading something lol.
Ill go with the blue because the blacks use multi platters....
as for the hyperthreading, ive been told from a friend my programs will utilize it a bit so ill stick with it.
Thanks again smile.gif

@Forceman
You said something about vanilla pro? Im lost my friend lol

Well it looks like ive got a solid build, anyone up to debate some of the parts? Always open to suggestions haha Besides they always end with learning about more tech tongue.gif

AData is a brand of SSD, and a good one at that. And your friend is not wrong, it will be used, but has been proven to LOWER FPS in games. That is why I say dont buy it unless your rendering. It is seriously a fairly useless feature that is not worth $100

I just meant the regular P8Z77-V instead of the P8Z77-V Pro.

alright so i wasnt as clueless as i first thought i figured it might be a ssd, would u recommend that higher then then m4 or 830/840?
Ill have to talk to my friend to see if the hyperthreading is really going to be used that badly or if i cant just get the i5.
How many fps are we talking anyways? I cant imagine it being that big? ~5-10?

And ahh i gotcha i didnt even think of that lol

I personally just built my first computer also called The Build. I built it for gaming and for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4. It handles tasks with no problems. I was originally going to get the i7-3770k, but from my research I found that for Photoshop, hyperthreading actually hurt the performance. Also, I don't do it for a living I could not see spending the extra money.

For memory, I would have to recommend G.Skill Ares 2x8GB 1600 MHz kit I have not had any problems with them so far. Though, I heard that Mushkin is a good brand.

For the SSD, I have a Crucial M4 128GB one and I would recommend it also. But, I just received a Samsung 840 non-pro 250 GB SSD for my laptop. The reason why I choose that one is looking at the Specs, it looked like it was lower wattage than the M4, so theoretically it should have a little bit longer battery life than the M4. Thou as I said just received so I still have to install. I would have went with the pro version if it was not so much of a big difference in price between the two in the ~250GB range.

The HDD that you choose is the same as the one that I got installed. thumb.gif

I am not trying to sway your mind one way or another, but after getting a real (as in dedicated/high performance) graphics card all I got to say is that I am amazed by my Gigabyte Windforce 3 7950.

I personally went with a CD/DVD burner over one with Blu-Ray capabilities because I personally don't see much use for them currently on computers except for backups and HD video creation.

And one final thing don't be afraid of Win 8. After you get use to the navigation it is not to bad to use at all.

Good luck and don't forget a mouse.

ADATA makes Sandforce SSDs... just take the 830 or the M4, whichever is cheaper. Vertex 4 is a good choice too.

For gaming the i7 will make practically no difference.

Whats wrong with the Sandforce? They are solid, fast SSD's that just dont die. Granted neither do the intels, but for $50 less, why the hell not get something just as fast that is still reliable for every day use?

Well, depending on your GPU, but on higher end systems (ie: GTX 680) I have heard of drops of up to 20 FPS, which is massive considering your paying a premium for it.
If your friend says that hyperthreading is worth it, he is lieing. Unless your going to be rendering stuff ALOT, or using Autocad and things like that, its is entirely pointless.

I know they're fine, I have one of them. They appear to be just as fast as others but in fact they use on-the-fly compression, so when you deal with incompressible data they will be far slower than the others.
