Are you then aware that that a PSU that is overkill is more expense to run below 20% then a PSU that fit your power needs

Option 1:Get an SS and run your cpu @ 4.7(requires better mobo + insulation + Single Stage phase cooler ($700 or so)
Option 2: Some form of 1155 build ($450)
Then there's the graphics..I'd suggest waiting on new AMD release..t hen wait a month..maybe cop an EOL 7950 or 7970.
Unless you want a Titan or 660-680.

There's pros and cons to either option.
With an SS you can overclock more on anything whistle.gif
I think a 2500K overclocked would do best on air/water.psst..there's been some really good ones lately ph34r-smiley.gif

660 in SLI beats Titan
7950 X-fire ..hmm..tbh..I hate multi-gpu..headaches.


I'm sorry, what is an SS? Never heard of that abbreviation before. And, I would like to stay at AMD for my CPU, cheaper, (yes, you pay more for Intel because it is loads more efficient and their chips have a better ipc, but, for me, it will not show much difference) and will be perfect for me. 8 cores at 5ghz sounds awesome ;D. Second, I have had ATI Gpus in the past, my last one being a 5770 (then switched to Nvidia with my 570), and I loathed the amount of options AMD cards DID NOT HAVE! As far as driver glitches go, i haven't had issues, I just love the Nvidia Control Center, and don't mind paying a tad more for it.

I don't plan on using a Multi-GPU setup, and will most likely be getting a 670 once the 700 series comes out, for the price drop. And, before Vishera came out, I was 95% sure I was going to buy a 2500k or 3570k and overclock it, but...I could use the cores, and again, I would prefer AMD

Your cpu should still be able to hold its own in gaming, especially at 4.17ghz. The next time you're playing crysis 3, drop out and check your cpu and gpu loads. Use Afterburner and check all of them. My moneys on the 1.25gb of ram just not being enough.
