Don't know where you are shopping, but that's too much for a Core i5.

Sorry. Different people gave different opinions about wattage. The PSU was the thing in this list that got changed the most. The PSUCalc program said 425W. Someone said 500W MINIMUM.

Will that FSP 450W run it perfectly fine with overclocking? It is very a very cheap PSU here in NZ at $71. Whatabout the FSP Raider 550W? That is only $12 more. Is that in the "higher output versions that aren't good" category?
Have a quick look here: http://pricespy.co.nz/category.php?l=s105230660&o=produkt_pris_inkmoms#rparams=l=s105230675

Or I can get the XFX 550W for $106 if the person gets them back in stock.

This list is Corsair power supplies: http://pricespy.co.nz/category.php?l=s105230660&o=produkt_pris_inkmoms#rparams=l=s105230880

Almost everyone says they are good and they appear very affordable. Is there a reason you suggest FSP 450W over Corsair VS450?

Sorry, I was a bit confused from all the different opinions about what wattage I would need. But you must be the pro coz it says "PSU" on your profile >.>

"Corsair" doesn't mean much to me at the moment without knowing the model number and wattage. Not really confused about brands. Just about the mixed opinions on what wattage I would need for this set up...

Remember this is in NZ dollars. Thats 20% more than US dollars. That is the cheapest price in New Zealand.

That didn't teach me not to buy ASRock. It taught me that it is asian and will have misleading advertising. And to double-check the wattage with my CPU. Thanks!
Whatabout this ASUS motherboard? ASUS is a good brand isn't it? You got a video why not to buy ASUS?
http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?r=p&partid=16573

Is it worth the $25 to go to that ASUS board? And what do I gain from going to the PRO version of that ASUS board for another $30?

Thanks

@ nztdm, I like you, honestly, but you need to learn to make some basic distinctions when dropping on boards such as this one, looking for advice... the fact that you're open to suggestions and such is cool, but you got to realize that most people giving their "input" on such wide audience, open boards, shouldn't be giving advice in the first place, but educating themseves... because they're clueless and ignorant.
So if you can't make the distinction between mindless spam and proper advice, you'll end up buying overhyped crap because some random marketing victim decided to spam "you can't go wrong with Viagra, Crystal Meth, etc" in your thread..

Well you seem to know what you are talking about the most. No general comments just vouching for a brand.

What do YOU think of the above post anyway? I find it real difficult to find the differences between motherboards. They all seem to do the same thing, just with different selections of slots. I have only been looking for Z77 MicroATX boards as I am not making a full size tower and Z77 is the latest so I assumed the best. Tell me if I am wrong about the chipset because that would broaden my search range dramatically.

What would you get out of these?

Can you please reply to Post #62? That will clear things up regarding PSU.

Ok, checked PriceSpy (again!)... and here's my input..

On the PSU, get the XFX Core 550 or the Antec HCG 520 (I see the prices have moved downwards since yesterday!?)
On the MoBo, you get what you pay for really.... the Z77 Pro4-M is an entry level Z77 board, at that price you don't have any better (or comparable) options available... it should still allow you to clock your CPU @ ~4.5Ghz
On the SSD, get a Samsung 830, much better drive, you might even find it cheaper than the Intel 330
On the VGA, if dropping the WF3 for a reference design card will help you get a proper CPU cooler then do it... chances are you'll get better silicon as well. wink.gif

Aaaaaaaand that's about it smile.gif

Thats where I get confused. What do you gain with the higher-end motherboards? Apart from more PCI-E X16. This Z77 board has USB3.0 and SATAIII. I don't know what else to look for on a motherboard.
What do I gain from the ASUS P8 Z77M-M for $15 more. Or the Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H for $25 more (and the MX version for another $14 more)?
