Could Use a Recommendation

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have about $600 to spend to upgrade my sig rig. I know there is a lot of talk about the minor performance increases between sandy, ivy and haswell while having similar decreases in overclockability, but pricing doesn't seem to be very different between the models so it's hard to call it. I've been a big overclocker in the past but don't necessarily care about it up front. So that being said, I want to get a CPU, mobo and GPU for under 600. Best bang for buck. Ready go.

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H - $127.50 (15% off w/ promo code Z7715722) @ Newegg.com
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor - $219.99 @ Amazon.com
Cooler: Thermalright CoGage True Spirit 120 - $36.99 @ Frozencpu
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHZ OC - $199.99 @ Amazon.com


Total: $584.47

If you don't need the CPU cooler, then you can upgrade your GPU to a Sapphire Radeon 7870 XT or an nVidia GTX 760 (preferably EVGA SC W/ ACX Cooler or Gigabyte 3X Windforce)
