Sup peeps, getting ready for my new build. Have my parts list below and thought I'd get a few opinions before I get underway.

Use will be Gaming, Primarily BF4.

Good start. But it could be vastly improved.

Firstly, if you are just gaming, then ditch the i7 and go for the i5 4670K. The i7 simply has features that you won't need, so there is no point in wasting your money.

Your mother board is also kind of sad. It does not allow you to overclock which sucks out a lot of the fun of having a high end system. I would recommend this motherboard since it is still fairly cheap and gives you a bunch of extra features.

Lastly I recommend that your video card is replaced with the same video card but with 4GB of Vram vs 2GB.

There are plenty of other little tweaks that can be made, but at least that is the bulk of your build. I will revisit this thread tomorrow when I have more time. thumb.gif

Thanks for the input.

My only issue is that I'm getting a package deal from my local supplier and need to keep this under 2k,
That being said if I down grade the Cpu, can someone offer me a better suggestion of board from this list, for roughly the same price as the one I have listed?

http://www.e********.co.nz/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=110_589

I would normally know myself but since moving to nz I'm like 12months behind. So frustrating.

Link is broken, I think the automatic censoring filter triggered and hid some letters of the link.

The problem is the FSP Raider is not very good, you get what you pay for.
