Making new rig, losing its track.

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Hey folks!
I want to upgrade my actual PC from 2core to a quad-core Intel. Albeit I found the components that I like I've bumped myself into a new question: how can I know if the case is going to suit to my desired motherboard?

Take a look at the following components:
ASUS B85M-G, Intel B85, LGA 1150, DDR III, SATA III, PCI-E 3.0, USB 3.0 99$
Intel Core i7-4770-LGA-1150-22nm-8MB-BOXl 389$
Corsair Vengeance DDR3, 2x4GB, 1600Mhz 99$
ASUS GeForce GTX 650 Ti, 1GB, GDDR5, 128 bit, DVI, HDMI, VGA PCI-E 3.0 214$
Seasonic M12II-750 Bronze 750W 135$
* a Seagate Barracuda, 64mb cache, 1TB, Sata3 80$
* missing case
* you choose a CPU cooler


I'm still not pretty sure if I should buy that TI videocard, please help me.

Cheers lads!

Since that board you linked to is Micro ATX, it can fit in a full ATX or micro ATX case.

Thanks, I noted that. By the way, can you give your view about the videocard?
Any recommended cpu cooling way...

My suggestions:

i5-4670K , you can overclock it, so you'll be able to get higher multi-threaded performance than the i7-4770. Also, much higher single-threaded performance. i7 goes to 3.9, i5 can overclock to 4.5 fairly common. http://www.evomag.ro/COMPONENTE-PC-Procesoare/Intel-Procesor-Intel-Core-i5-4670K-LGA-1150-22nm-6MB-BOX-Overclocking-Enabled-101534.html

Z87 motherboard so you can overclock the K-series CPU. http://www.evomag.ro/COMPONENTE-PC-Placi-de-baza/GIGABYTE-Placa-de-baza-GIGABYTE-Z87M-D3H-Intel-Z87-LGA-1150-DDR-III-SATA-III-PCI-E-3.0-USB-3.0-101461.html

What sort of resolution do you game at? 650 Ti is decent, but I'd go with the 650 Ti Boost if you game at 1920x1080. Better would be a 660 - I have a 660 at 1080p and it runs most games on high. The 650 Boost is about 10% slower. I also suggest 2GB graphics card, since a lot of games can use more than 1GB of VRAM at 1080p (even at 1600x900 - 2GB would be more future-proof). http://www.evomag.ro/COMPONENTE-PC-Placi-Video/GIGABYTE-Placa-Video-GIGABYTE-GeForce-GTX-650-Ti-Boost-2GB-GDDR5-192bit-2-x-DVI-HDMI-DisplayPort-PCI-E-3.0-100374.html

Benchmark - 650 Ti Boost is 33% faster than 650 Ti. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_650_Ti_Boost/25.html

Any CPU that can't overclock will run cool enough on stock cooling.

But if you want a better CPU cooler, I'd go with a CoolerMaster 212 Evo. About $35.

Well the 650 ti I written about was actually the 2GB boost version. Sorry but I'm not intersted in overclocking at all so I pressume I'm going to stay at the current components.

What is your budget and what are you going to use this pc for?

If it is just games then an i5 will be fine.

Well yeah, just for anything concerning gaming. I want to make video streams, youtube videos and so on smile.gif Which i5? 3770?

If you are streaming whilst playing something like bf3 then the i7 will be much faster then the i5.

Depending on what games you play, the amd fx 8320/8350 could be good options as these are really good for gaming and streaming at the same time. They are also much cheaper aswell.

Looks like you got my idea. I want to record in FullHD on twitch and make sure I have a nice balanced fps while recording with Fraps.

Another task: give me please a more precised case (micro ATX gen) which has its power supply slot down.(you know what I mean)

Segotep SG-Z2 could work with :3 thumb.gif (I guess)

An i7 would be a better idea then.

As for a micro atx case the fractal design define mini/arc mini or the corsair 350d are good options.

I noticed that you have included the gtx 650 ti. I would go with an i5 with a more powerfull card then an i7 with a gtx 650 ti.
