Parts Selection Advice Needed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey I'm looking to put together a Gaming / HTPC system. What do you guys think of this list I'm open for suggestion.
Thanks all

Case: Corsair 800D - Already Purchase

Mother Board: ASUS Maximus V Formula Or ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 ?
CPU: i7 3770K - Retail Edge Deal -
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB ?

i'd get a i5 3750K over the i7 3770K. for games you would want to disable HT anyway. plus it saves you some cash you could put toward a SSD etc. the 660 Ti 2GB is excellent as long as you don't want to use anti-aliasing. it takes a pretty big performance hit when you do. i'm not familiar with any ASUS boards.

good luck on your build thumb.gif

Hey thanks for your feed back.
My choice for CPU is the 7 3770K or i7 3930K, from the Retail edge Deal.
