    What do you normally stick on your SSD? I mean besides OS.
    The RAM is about as Overkill as you can get considering you are only getting 16GB.

    PSU is overkill
    Motherboard is overkill
    CPU is wasted money
    SSD is wasted money

    I really don't know what to say other then you are spending a lot of money on pointless things(it is your money so I guess it is alright)

    PSU I want plenty of breathing room for my parts and SLI.
    MOBO great choice for OC and 5 year warranty excellent cooling.
    CPU I want plenty of power and will not need to upgrade it for a long time, sure new comes out but the software will need to catch up to that.
    SSD I'm guessing you don't have one or you know very little about them.

    Computer parts don't get short of breath. Two GTX 670s use less than 400W together. 1kW PSUs are for crazy people that want to run four GTX 680s on an overclocked X79 build.

    CPU I want plenty of power and will not need to upgrade it for a long time, sure new comes out but the software will need to catch up to that.
    The 3770K will last just as long as the 3570K. Games do not use hyperthreading, and as long as gaming consoles don't support it, games won't either.

    SSD I'm guessing you don't have one or you know very little about them.
    There were a lot of problems with the vertex 3 SSDs, get Intel, Samsung or crucial instead. If you must get a 200+GB one, get this one instead:

    I'm plan to OC the PC and the nice thing with that PSU if I do go to bigger GPU (SLI) down the road I won't have to worry if the PSU can handle it.
    I changed the SSD to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820147134 I don't *think* I'll need any bigger then that, and even if I do the case has plenty of room to add to it.
    And as for core I'm getting huge mixed signals about which I should get. It's almost 50/50 with them from people.
    Here since I also plan to use the PC as a hook up to my HD TV will it be the same with an i5 vs i7?
    I doubt it'll matter but may as well be sure.

    And on another note a different forum I go to I actually had a guy tell me to get crap parts (not exact words but close enough) because better will come out.
    It was my only "wtf" moment of this planned build.

    I don't have to worry too much about prices since I get big discounts through corporate seller I know.
    My last build it I bought even with sales would have ran me roughly $1,300 I got it all for $800.

    That's why I said to ignore the prices listed I use them for reference for my guy.
    Lol sounds shady but it's all good.

    There is no two-way SLI or crossfire configuration using modern cards (7000 series AMD and 600 series nVidia) other than two GTX 690s or HD 7990s(not even released yet) that would require more than a 750W PSU. The trend with graphics cards is now to produce more processing power while consuming less electricity. The days of 300+W consuming GTX 480s are long gone. Overclocking the CPU will add about 40W to its 77W stock maximum power draw. Overclocking two graphics cards will add about 60W to their stock maximum power draw of about 180W.

    And as for core I'm getting huge mixed signals about which I should get. It's almost 50/50 with them from people.

    Are you planning on rendering videos or images for more than 4 hours per day, every day? If the answer is not a resounding "YES", you do not need an i7 processor.

    So http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116504 will be plenty for my OC needs and gaming.
    Nearly a $110 price difference as well.

    Yes I know how it works.
    The suggestion I was given was to boost up the RAM.
    Does not give a noticeable increase from 1600 to 2400?

    Nope, not worth it at all.

    Everything over 1866 = complete overkill.

    Whats your thoughts on http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233277 ?
    I kinda want to change up the color a bit since I'm not sure I want all black inside the case.

    Full black would match though.
    Also, drop the PSU to like 650w-750w. Max. 750w is more than you should ever need from it, far more.
    The RAM is fine. I would personally not go above 1600MHz, as the CAS Latency goes up.
    I'd rather find a 9-9-9-24 or a 8-8-8-20 kit, and frequency second.
    But sure, it would work.

    Ok, as for the PSU I was told to go up to the next step (1000+) I'll go back to the 750w I had.
    And what the hell I'll give in and stay put at 1600 RAM lol. And Black at that.
    So now my parts are:

    Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
    Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116504 ($239.99)

    CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 1600
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233299 ($134.99)

    ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77
    MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131821 ($239.99)

    SAMSUNG 830 Series 128GB
    SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820147134 ($149.99)

    GIGABYTE GV-N670OC-2GD GeForce GTX 670
    GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125423 ($399.99)x2

    Thermaltake Chaser MK-I Full Tower
    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133191 ($159.99)

    CORSAIR H100 Liquid CPU Cooler
    Cooling: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...81017&Tpk=h100 ($114.99)

    SeaSonic X-SERIES X-1050 1050W Full Modular
    Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151087 ($159.99)

    COUGAR CF-V12HB Vortex
    Cooling Fans: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835553005 ($13.99)x4

    Total: $2,055.87

    (HDD: Reuse current HDD)

    And I've actually gotten into a fight about some of my parts on another forum.
    1st was about my MOBO they say it's crap and actually "highly" suggest I get a lesser MOBO with much less options and honestly looks like shit.
    2nd that a SSD is crap and any "smart" build would never have them that, get this, a standard HDD is faster... And the SSD another person says if I really must have one is total crap even the reviews say to stay away lol.

    That person must clearly have been trolling you then.
    Also, I would've gone with a less plastic-looking case (according to Newegg pictures).
    Did you remember to budget in the Operating System?

    Which forum is this? Sounds like they are talking out of their arses. Anybody that says an SSD is slower than a mechanical HDD has absolutely no idea what the hell they are talking about. Same goes for recommending 1kW PSUs when they are definitely not needed.

    I don't have to worry about a OS since I own Windows 7 and this PC I'm using now I'm giving someone else and they are sticking in their own HDD.
    I'll just have to make a call to Microsoft to get the key activated.

    Watch the video on the page looks pretty good, the pictures don't really give it justice IMO.

    And no he wasn't trolling some other agreed with him, that's the scary part.
    Also rather not say which forum same I won't give them this one don't want to make a forum war lol.
    And I wasn't even asking for help there, I'm a retired moderator and just showing off my latest build but the members seem to have gotten a bit retarded...

    Total : 1362$+Tx and Shipping , you also have a couple MIR

    If I was you , I would not think about SLI for the moment, because a single GTX670 Is already overkill for the games that you play (Seriously a 150$ GPU would do tha Job (we're talking constant 60fps on ultra @ 1080p) but hey if you want to buy another 670 later for a more demanding game, well you will be able to upgrade because the 750W PSU can easily handle an OCd i5 3570k and two OCd GTX670.
