What do you think? Should I change/add something on this rig?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I want to build a gaming rig next week and I'm still not sure if I chose the right parts.

- I'm not planning to give out more than 550€ right now, but you can still give me an advice what I can buy later wink.gif
- I won't buy a better GPU, CPU Cooler or a SSD right now, because I still need some more money for all those parts smile.gif
- For the GPU I'm thinking of a HD 7870... maybe even a 670 if I'll have enough money, but I'm not sure about the SSD and the CPU Cooler yet, which one to choose. As I said... I'll buy the GPU, CPU Cooler and the SSD later smile.gif

Feel free to comment! And please be kind, if you can. thumb.gif

Get yourself some 1600MHz RAM modules. 1333MHz just doesn't cut it.

unless you want the latest cpu go for that setup

BUT

If I was on a tight budget I would get the 3570k and add the extra money left to invest in a better GPU.Yeah I agree with 0CALEFACTION0, get better RAM.

I hope this helps
