Because my actual PC is getting old, I decided to not only upgrade single parts, but to build a completely new one.
I'm used to buy from Alienware etc., so unfortunately, I'm quite inexperienced when it comes down to building my own systems - which is why I'm really unsure about some things.
My primary (and nearly only) field of application is and will be gaming. Mostly WoW, SCII etc. (at least at the moment and in the near future).
Don't know if I'll be overclocking...never did so far, but of course it's possible.
Budget is ~2.000$, 2.500$ at the most.
This is what I have so far:
MoBo: ASUS Sabertooth Z77
CPU: Intel i7 3770k
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x 4GB
GPU: Gigabyte 7970 (maybe a second one later?)
SSD: Corsair Force GT 120 GB
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
PSU: Corsair AX850
Heatsink: Corsair H100
Case: Corsair 600T
I'm especially unsure about the MoBo and the CPU - would it be better to get the X79 and let's say an i7 3820?
And if not: Sabertooth Z77 vs Maximus V Formula vs ASUS P8Z77-V Pro/Deluxe?
Thanks in advance, any help would be greatly appreciated
