$400-$450 CPU/MOBO/RAM

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looking to get a good ram/CPU/motherboard for 400-450 shipped. 500 is doable but not a penny more. I would really prefer haswell an i5 4670k. I7 4770k builds are also welcomed. I will upgrade both ram and mobo in the future.

First goto plan was to drive from sandiego to Tustin to get a good deal at microcenter. Lucky for me they are completely out of stock on haswell i5 4670k's.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. If you can wiggle a solid 500w psu in the budget it would be a plus.

System will be primarily gaming/multi tasking/ light sketchup and rendering.

Ok,

So you're completely out of luck for a decent 4770k setup since the processor is $340 on it's own.

I'd go with the 4570k + GA-Z87X-D3H + corsair memory.

Comps
