If you want a better price per performance ratio, you go with a 3570K and a 1155 MOBO since their price are actually cheaper.
Haswell was actually quite disappointing except if you want a laptop with a long lasting battery. You can't go wrong with either anyway, flip a coin.

Concerning Razer, some of their products are overpriced, I've never bought a Razer keyboard nor headset, but I've owned two razer death Adder, the first one lasted 5 years and I dropped it quite a few time, it finally died due to bad flashing I did on it. Since then I've been using the Death Adder black Edition which was about something like 2 years ago, and it's still working extremely well, I've had my Qck Heavy (steelseries) since it was out, something like 7 years ago, with a little maintenance, it's still in great state. So, to conclude : never buy a Razer Headset nor Keyboard but wait for some deals on their mices, not the 2013 version though. Concerning a mechanical keyboard, you could go with Ducky or Cooler Master, they make some good units (also CM is not making their one but using a design by another OEM, a bit like Fractal with their PSU). The keycools are good keyboard too, I would recommend the MX Blue switches for everyday task and gaming, it takes some adaptation but it's just great overall.

Concerning 2x770 or 2x7970, it's also simple, the 770 has nvidia features such as Cuda, Physx, and still operates better in a 2-way SLI configuration than 2 7970 in Crossfire. The advantage of the 7970 here would be more raw compute power and the 3GB of VRAM, the best that you could do is stick with the 770 but wait for the 4GB version to come out (I would pick the EVGA 770 FTW w/ ACX cooler 4GB which should come out soon now). Both cards should have a good selling value also the 7970 should resell better due to their polyvalence.

8GB at 1600 or 1866 (since the price are pretty much the same) will be way more than enough.
The Newton R3 is a great unit, please send us some feedback when you receive the unit.

I see, thats a great information for me to know about it. Hehe. However, after i watched this video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkC8dL5ngn4 ) i decided to go
for haswell, as it gave an impressive performance. smile.gif

Alright noted , great piece of information on the razer product as well as steelseries , it was unbelievable that
your steelseries mice lasted so long.

As for the mechanical keyboard, it was definitely great for me to have one. but, the price seems to be a little bit
expensive for me with only US$2600-2700 budget. But, will definitely check out your recommendation and do some adjustment to try to fit into my gaming comp.

Alright noted. great piece of information on both the nvidia and amd GPU as well. " the best that you could do is stick with the 770 but wait for the 4GB version to come out " are you saying that instead of getting two of the GTX 770s 2gb you recommend me to go for an GTX 770 4gb?

Sure sure. I will definitely gave you guys some feedback on it.

With 2500 dollars? No, it isnt.

But I can tell you that with 2500 dollars and attempting to build a surround gaming rig, your IPS panels certainly ARE out of your budget.... You can either have the graphcs horsepower to run three monitors, or you can have three nice monitors you can barely run. Pick one.


As I said, 3 decent monitors, 2 780s. Leaves about 700 for the rest of your components. If you buy 2x 770s, you will have about a grand leftover for the rest of the PC. If you get the 770s, get the 4gb ones or you will hate yourself in about a year.

Budget means nothing more than staying under a certain amount.


5K can be a set budget for a build, and it is still a budget build.

My apologies for making a joke my dear.
I shall not do that again.

Anyway, it is a Razer mouse that actually lasted that long, the first Death Adder I owned, not a steelseries one,
As said up there, you either get 3 cheap monitors and 2 780s or 3 good monitors and 2 770 with 4GB of VRAM.
You'll be good with both IMO. Unless you're a performance freak and you want to see your game running at Ultra at all time whatever the game, but in this case your budget is set too low, sadly. It's already quite a monstrous rig already IMO.

Well, what I meant about Haswell, is that the processor is more expansive and the MOBO that goes with it as well, Ivy is still pretty decent and the prices are not that high considering the price of Haswell. But it is indeed your build, you do what you want to, that's the most important.

I agree with you on that. I think that after all I have seen and read about the 4770k, it wouldn't be the choice for this build. I don't think the benefits of the Haswell architecture are utilized to their full potential in a non-mobile setting. I think the ability to sink the extra $150 the OP would spend on the Haswell plus the $30-$50 more for the board with an 1150 socket could be better utilized on another piece of hardware. I mean that is the price of a third monitor since the real issue is going to be the ability to have a three monitor set-up. The 3570k is a pretty kickass CPU and will handle the games perfectly fine. The CPU shouldn't be the concern as that is not where the bottle-necking is going to be in the case of a three monitor set-up. That is going to occur with the GPUs and the monitors. The OP should bear in mind that the difference between 125 fps and 143 fps is not recognizable by the human eye and a ~5% performance increase in 3D Mark does not justify a 71% price difference. I think your advice to go with the 3570k in this case should be really considered. The three monitor set-up is what is really going to bottle-neck this build and the benefits of the Haswell CPU are going to be entirely irrelevant because the OP doesn't realize the strain of a three monitor setup running Crysis 3 on 2 non-top tier GPUs. Other people have stated that running in a three monitor set-up is the biggest concern and that is a GPU issue.

Oh wait, I didn't see that the OP was going for the less expensive 4670k. I think that bringing the difference down to ~$30-40 is a different story. In that case it is really hard to get anything better on the GPU side for $40 in this build. If the OP has the extra $40 that can't be spent anywhere else then i think going for the 4670k is perfectly fine. I also agree that what matters most is that the OP has the computer he wants.

That's why I suggested to build around 2x 780s and 3 decent 1080P monitors.

i'm totally on your side with this. having $2600 to play with for a rig is awesome and a great amount of money...until someone says they want to run Crysis 3 (at a minimum of high, because who actually wants to play that game at anything less) on three monitors. then, all of a sudden, you take this "build with a budget" and turn it into a "budget build." lol.

Not sure if it was posted earlier, but what's the use for this rig? Do you want a specific form factor? Preferences on motherboard manufacturers, and graphics chips (AMD or nVidia)?
