You're right, the 3770K is overkill. But then why do people buy 3970Xs for gaming?
Only idiots have 3960Xs for gaming. Also, almost no one has a 3960X that isn't doing compute.

how do you like that board? my friend just picked one up new in the box
from someone that bought it and decided not to use it but couldn't return
it so my buddy got for 60 bucks. he wants me to build the system for
him next week with all his other parts. the guy he got it from paid 125 bucks for from his work as he's a computer parts buyer for Zones inc in Auburn Wa.
I'm a Sabertooth fan.

Every part of it is amazing, except that the sound drivers tend do be glitchy sometimes.
The VRM is amazing, the PCIe layout can handle 4 GPUs, and the onboard sound is as good as a dedicated card, as far as I can tell. The NIC is probably helpful in games as well; I don't know if it actually is.

You should probably ask in the G1 Sniper 3 club if the sound driver issue is common. I just have an issue where once every few days, all of my sounds will sound like the slender man is standing behind me, and once every several boots, the sound will have a bit of static... maybe the real problem is just slendy biggrin.gif

Most of us built our computers ourselves with parts from Microcenter or Newegg. I realize you may not know much about computers based on your gaming PC question. If you'd like to save ALOT of money and get a gaming PC for your daughter that is already built I suggest:
