Well this is only $20 more it is the 4670K

You know I understand the 2500 and 3570 the 5 stands for i5... but why are they calling this the 4670?

Anyways

Thanks a lot... now that I found out I can get a 4670K and a Gigabyte UD4H for $340... I'm sold... SHHHH don't tell the wife :/

OH wait... I think the 4670 is the K so if so MY BAD!

I WAS WRONG

CONGRATS

OOPS

EDIT AGAIN...

YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE WRONG PROCESSOR

3.8GHz 4670 is not faster than a 4.2-4.4GHz 3570K

Might not be a gigantic difference but I don't really know for sure.

Good catch! I can spring for the 20 bucks to get the right cpu.

No I wasnt really planning on overclocking playing a major role if at all on this build.

BLASPHEMY! I know but just not *that* into it these days.

Most of it is pretty standard. Keep in mind that if your suggestion would cause me to exceed my budget youre wasting your time and mine. There was a bit of confusion whilst shopping when I noticed the newer skt1150 cpu/mobos were available. Is there any reason for me to be giving that socket any real consideration over the 1155?

Anyway... Fire away. Thanks in advance.

You can do much much much better for $1200:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K ($218.90 @ Amazon)
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H100i ($109.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme6 ($131.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 ($59.50 @ Newegg.com)
SSD: SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 GB ($162.88 @ Amazon.com)
Storage: WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive ($64.99 @ Amazon.com)
Video Card: EVGA EVGA GeForce GTX760 SuperClocked w/EVGA ACX Cooler ($259.99 @ Amazon)
Case: Lian Li PC-7HA Silver Aluminum Mid Tower Chassis ($70 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: OCZ ZT Series 650W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Bronze ($85.82 @ Amazon)

Total: $1104.56

Here's what you get. Solid motherboard for overclocking (makes it easy as pie too). Efficient as well as more than sufficient cooling (when you catch that bug again wink.gif). Much higher clocked memory. One of the fastest SSD's out there (on par with 840 Pro). Actual storage drive. A much better graphics card that is about the equivalent to a 7950 if not in some cases surpassing it. Your same case and of course an equally as good PSU. If you want, you can swap the video card for a 7870 XT if you need AMD (but not as good as 760 btw), and of course swap the OCZ PSU for a Capstone if you want to be more comfortable (still a good PSU though). Either way you have another $100 to spare but you still are left over with much much better parts. I can do a 4670k build too, but this is pretty solid.

Yeh... I think he just upped it a little bit from deciding he wanted to go with 4670/4670K... maybe you missed those posts...

That case has a $30 promo code though. I don't think he figured that into everything...

BONUS!!!!

Also his ram is more expensive cus he wants 16GB but I agree that 8GB is the way to go. Especially for gaming!

One thing I can mention though is that if you are not getting a 4670K then really no need for a Z87 motherboard...

Also if you are not overclocking or even if you are... the water cooling thing is a complete waste of money... A hyper212 is dirt cheap or just run the stock fan if you are not OCing... and even if you are most people can get the CPU a few steps faster without even upping the voltage.

Indeed BONUS! lol Thanks a lot for pointing that out! I am indeed getting the 4670k. Im gonna go with the 8gb of ram instead of 16. Im having a hard time deciding between the 760 and the 7950 but it looks like in most game benchmarks the 760 edges out the 7950 just a tad.

Thanks for all the effort you put into this build but Im pretty dead set on the new gen4 cpu now. If nothing else it will be upgradeable in the future should I not be satisfied with the 4670k's performance. I dont think Ill be overclocking much if at all initially. Im sure down not too far down the road Im gonna start mucking around with it so Ill cross that bridge when I reach it.
