$1000 Intel Build.

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Haven't built a computer in about 3 years. I have A+, Network+, and Cisco certifications, I've just chosen Auto Mechanics as my career path and haven't stayed up to date with technology.

I already have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Looking to stay around $1000. $1200 would be the absolute maximum I can spend.

I don't game often but I want this build to be capable of any current games on the market. I'd also like components that will allow overclocking.

If you need to know anything else, ask. Sorry if I forgot to include anything.

The Havik should allow for a pretty nice overclock, very quiet and great velue cooler. The Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H is a brillant motherboard which will be fine at any foreseeable frequency (see the review by Sin here). thumb.gif

Also, the 3GB 7950 is the best value in high-end GPU's right now, will crush anything you throw at it.

This looks pretty solid to me thumb.gif though i would go with a XFX550W PSU ( http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb9 ) instead of the CX600 from corsair because it has a more powerfull +12v rail the case i guess is personal taste so go with the one you like and finally i would change the ram with the samsung wonder ram ( http://pcpartpicker.com/part/samsung-memory-mv3v4g3dus )

Yeah but the CX600 is $15 less after MIR, and the Samsung memory is still OOS at Newegg...

Not a fan of that case but as [CyGnus] said, its personal choice. I'm liking the build other than the case.

What kind of overclock can be seen with the 3570K?

I'm guessing the SSD is for an OS drive and commonly used applications?
post #7 of 25
3570k does 4.4/4.5 easy if you delidde the CPU something like 4.7 / 5GHz for 24/7.

What about the Corsair 200R?

It's a nice case at a very decent price tag. smile.gif
