[BUILD] Intel i5-4670K Sale

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey fellas,

I've been working on choosing hardware for my PC build and noticed that the processor I want got a nice price drop today.

Just wanted some input from the pros on here about the products and any recommendations before I pull the credit card out thumb.gif

IMO, that should be a solid build. Others may have better input but I like it. Thank you for the post I was looking at the CPU and the sale I would have missed. thumb.gif

I wanted to pick up the case a little while back when it had a pretty good sale as well but wanted to order everything at once instead of waiting in limbo.

Other mobo suggestions? Was kind of going for the red/black theme if you couldn't tell. Been a while since I've built a PC so I was unsure if I really needed that PSU - what would you recommend?

sorry it took me a cppl

i can prolly fix it for red and black tho

but for less $$$ you get a waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better card and 550w is more than enough to power that system w/ high overclocks

You don't need a 750W PSU for your build. A 550W PSU will be more than enough.
post #7 of 11
could go with a z87killer from asrock

id still hafta stick with that zotac 770 tho, you cant even see the front of the card installed anyway, and for the same price as the TF 2gb you get a 3fan 4gb!!!

Thanks for setting up the build. I'm pretty set on the R4 Windowed case, would like to keep the red/black theme, and think the GTX 760 will be more than enough for the gaming I will be doing.

I did swap out the PSU to what you recommended and it dropped the build to under 1k which is awesome!

I've heard good things about ASRock boards and it is $20 cheaper than the MSI I chose. Didn't know if there was any real benefit to having the mobo and video card both being MSI.

some say 4 is overkill,

Got everything ordered with the exception of the PSU. thumb.gif

Would this unit be sufficient for my build?
