What if i put two better Gpus and get a quad cpu?

that's 1300$ built. you can do the saving by getting the Reference MSI or Gigabyte 7970 and OC it to the GHZ levels and beyond smile.gif

good luck buddy

This.

You could change brands up for preferences, but this is a solid build for what you want to do with it.

Wow really?! Jman are going to oc your cpu? It performs like crazy http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-3770K+%40+3.50GHz but if your not here are some other example
.
The building referenced in the post before me is good but there's wasted value in a 100 case, the novelty wears off
fast. There's also wasted value in that closed loop if your
not oc'ing. That money saved can go towards ram with
faster timings.

1. Why locked processor? Buy the unlocked one.
2. Price of G.Skill Vauw series RAM is too high. Buy RipJawsX kit if you can't find any other thing.

Insufficient data. Provide the full model number of the PSU.

Agreed, it's much better to get the i7-3770K for the overclocking. The additional $40 is well worth it.

The RipjawsX CL9 memory exactly just as much as the G.Skill Value RAM, so there's no reason not to get it.

As for the PSU, I'm assuming that it's the Seasonic M12II SS-750AM since Newegg has it for $99.99 currently.

Will you ever have more than one 7970? Or in general, more than one video card?

 

I'm mostly looking at the PSU because if you stay with just one 7970 then you can get this PSU which is a much better unit for only $89.99 shipped:

 

The 550W SeaSonic G Series

 

So you'd be spending $10 less while getting a superior PSU.

 

This isn't to say that you need this much power for your system if you only have one 7970 in it. I could recommend a quality-made 450W PSU, but the prices aren't any better for the 450W PSUs I want to recommend.

That all depends.

If you're not going to be gaming in eyefinity, there is no real need to get two cards. One 7970 is more than enough for single monitor 1080p gaming, and can still play some games on multiple monitors at decent framerates if everything is turned down somewhat.
