Ok i'll just throw my 2cents
CPU: Intel i5 3570K 190$ as there is no use of the HT in gaming
Mobo: AsRock Z77 extreme 4 135$ and i believe it's budnled in MC
Ram: Yours are fine
Case: totally yours
Cooling: get the Hyper 212 Evo 30$ save 10

if the MC combo deal buy a CPU get 50$ off a mobo is still valid use it. add up all your savings and get your self a nice HD7950. you won't regret it.

First off, what will this rig be used for? Will you be overclocking? Anyway, here's something to start off with if it's a gaming build you're after. Add your cooler of choice, as well as a case and any other peripherals you might need. Parts (Click to show)

About the parts..

A 3770k is not needed for gaming rig of this budget. Games aren't very heavily threaded quite yet and won't really utilize the hyper threading, so it's just not worth the money for gaming.

The RAM doesn't really matter, just get any CAS 9, 1600Mhz 2x4Gb kit, as they're the cheapest. Faster ram helps with getting higher minimum FPS in games, but with a build of this budget there are many other more important things you should be spending the money on instead.

The PSU is way overkill. We're looking at mere 300W> gaming load here with the setup i picked. You can even overclock to your hearts content and this PSU will still be more than enough.

That MoBo isn't very good. Gigabyte Z77X-D3H (Almost identical to UD3H, which held a OC world record at some point) is arguably the best bang for buck if overclocking in mind. Beefy power delivery is a big plus from overclocking perspective. I own the UD3H and i don't have any complaint's other than the audio could be better, but other than that it is a very solid performer at a good price.

SSD i picked is faster than the Intel and cheaper, however SSD benchmark speeds matter very little if any in real life usage, so if you can find a better deal on the Intel it's a very good one.

You can do so much more with this budget in the graphics card section. Get a amd 7950. It competes with GTX 670 in means of performance and when overclocked it'll go past GTX 680 and 7970. I have been very happy with mine and it destroys anything i throw at it at 1080p.

I'm mainly going with the stuff because i know the brands, and they have good reviews from my friends, the parts are dependable and right now there is a crazy sale going on, so this rig would have been about $1,500 without the sales

the cpu is 8 threads, decent for its price, and the main purpose of the rig is to be a gaming rig medium level gaming which will last me for 5+ years.

the mobo, is ok i guess i trust the company, i heard ASROCK is one step below asus ?

cooling, i like the liquid cooling if i were to overclock it, my friend has a similar set up and is running it at 5.1Ghz

ram, the latency is good for its price, and 1600 is the highest that is compatible with the CPU

the gpu is overclocked, and i won't be running crysis 3 or anything that high so i think i'm good for now

case is roomy, looks good, many slots, good ventilation

psu was recomended by a friend, also i need a psu of minimum 400W and if i were to upgrade in the future i would just keep this one, good rating and on sale

What about THIS. I would suggest trying to find a case with usb 3.0 support out of the box. There's lots of nice cases around the same price point with it.

Ok here

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/IaDA
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Dark Knight II SD1283 Night Hawk Edition 89.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($46.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($97.86 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($49.30 @ Newegg)
Storage: A-Data Premier Pro SP600 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($104.99 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB Video Card ($234.99 @ Newegg)
Wireless Network Adapter: D-Link DWA-130 802.11g/n USB 2.0 Wi-Fi Adapter ($12.92 @ Compuvest)
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 w/Window (White) ATX Mid Tower Case ($109.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: NZXT HALE82 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($79.98 @ Outlet PC)
Total: $972.01

3570k is as fast as the 3770k, just without hyperthreading. With the Xigmatek Dark Night you should be able to get a stable 4.5 OC. I would recommend this Gigabyte UD3 due to problems with the Extreme 4 (I havent experienced them, just heard about them), plus this board is cheaper so whatever. I got you a 7870 XT within budget, it will rock that GTX 650 all day. Also I picked out a PSU off the link in my sig for good PSU's and got you into a much better case.

we are all working for your convenience my friend. trying to get you THE BEST for your money. people are advising you with up to 5 years on this forum and have seen it all. if you want a build to last 5 years your specs wont just do. but the people here are advising for a nice 2-3 years nice build that would need just one upgrade or two along the years.

I would say pick up the i5 3570 for 190 + 50$ off your motherboard from MC that would be maximum 320$
and while you are there take a look at their ram and HDD offers. you might get something for your budget with nice output
and if you have noticed all our concern was the gpu. we all recommended a 7950 because it will last you a year at least and if you want to upgrade you will just throw in another card. We recommend the amd because it has 3GB of Vram which is handy when gaming.

Just to highlight if your purpose wasn't gaming people would have said go for the i3770K but as you stated it's a gaming rig. people said 3570.

And for the Cooling. the Hyper 212 Evo is a well known product and many people achieved good overclocks with it. and you have to know that the overclocking is a very variable process. a chip can hit 5GHZ on 1.34V while the other can't reach 4.2 with that. it's just plain luck.

Good luck man
