This is a similar list, but I like to have HOT swap-able drive bay on the case (see
Cooler Master 690 II Advanced - Mid Tower Computer Case) and a Hot Swap Rack with 2ea.
Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache and use Acronis True Image WD Edition - Free off the WD website and only works with WD drives I think as that is all I buy in drives, you can get everything installed and operating the way you like it - then do a back up of the who;e drive with Acronis True Image WD Edition with both Hot Swap bay's you can back up and restore fast and easy this is now a standard for my builds and remember to drag and drop you COD profile from old computer to new HD after the game has been installed on the new drive


Hope this helps and ASUS I think is the best MB but looks like you know that already Smile

I can't believe i forgot about this thread.

Hey guys both your virtual pc's will undoubtably kick butt as multi-purpous gaming machines.

You both chose Intel's excellent 3570k processors.
You both chose Nvidia's excellent gtx660ti gpus.
You both chose 2 great bang 4 the buck Asus boards.

Another fantastic motherboard you should consider is Gigabyte's superb z77x-ud3h as it has more usb 3.0, more power phases for the cpu (helps for stable 24/7 overclocks) and other extras for about same price.

Also if you can get your hands on a Sapphire hd 7950, (some of them are going for alot cheaper than a gtx660ti) and they have similar performance depending on which review you read. From personal experience both companies make excellent gpus. Some games prefer the gtx, some the 7950.

You both chose excellent power supplies from Corsair and should be applauded for this as cheap psus inevitably always lead to all sorts of problems you don't want when building a pc. Also both of you chose psu's with enough power to SLI or Crossfire however if you plan on having multiple hdd, ssd's, sound card etc. 750 watts or more is better.

Both your boards support SLI and/or Crossfire however Nevar you might not be able to fit them in your very nice but smaller case should you consider adding a 2nd gtx660ti in the futur.(not sure though)

The Cooler Master 690 advanced II is an absolutely flawless case. I should know, i built half a dozen pc's with the original 690 and i will be using the II in my next build (hopefully this summer).

Also Nevar, chose the win 7 premium 64bit as it supports up to 16gb of ram.

Most importantly you guys should NOT build your pc's now because Intel is releasing newer, better and especially important for us gamers FASTER processors this June 2nd 2013.

Personally, ill wait till end of summer to upgrade. Maybe a 4770k...


RaG


P.S. Forgot to mention, i know they're still very expensive but, getting a small SSD LIKE 90 OR 128GB to install the o.s. and most frequetly used programs on will show a speedier pc in everyday computing as in boot-up speed and quicker load times.

Also an extra fan is a great idea and i used to use OCZ FREEZE TIM, now i use Arctic Cooling MX-4. Couple degrees cooler is always good.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7-4770K.html Looks good will have to wait until my next build as most of the above mentioned is my current set up including that awesome case 690 and my video card older :-\ I use a torrented version of windows 7 and I would like to get a SSD drive to hold me till a later build ;-)

New socket 1150 unfortunately for you slayer...haHA!

Also new DDR4 memory!

New platform and gone are all sata 3 gbps. Now all 6 gbps sata ONLY.

The 4670k would be the replacement for 3570k and the 4770k replacing the 3770k.

The thing is that if the yearly trend with Intel continues, these 4th generation parts will be about the same price as the 3rd generation (+ or - 5 %) which is one of the reasons why it's worthwhile waiting for. The other reason of coarse is futureproofing as much as possible.

No such thing as futureproofing...they already have the technology for another 4 to 5 upgrades its what keeps them ahead and in the $$$$$.

it all seems like a good choice. the i7 does no good for the gamer. so you are better off with the i5, the ssd is a good option, just put the programs that you will use the most on it, it definitly reads a lot faster, put your windows on it, and the games you use the most. consider if you ever plan to go to 3 Monitors. make sur your motherboard and video card can support it. other than that you are close to what i use. i put 16gb memory in just because i got them on sale cheap.

i use i5 ivy bridge 3750k
asrock z77 extreme 4
seagate 2 tb hard drive
seagate 1 tb hard drive
140mm case fan (top)
2 120mm case fans (sides)
seagate psu
geforce gtx 660i

My temp's run pretty staedy around 26 or 27 degrees celcius
i dont bother over clocking anymore, no real need to, with the equipment nowadays.

Sounds like a pretty solid rig. where do you get your parts?
i get everything from newegg.com. they have the best prices, that i can find.

Nice set-up there Mac.
But i disagree about the i7 though as it is measuably consistently faster in games than the i5.
Also new games and i believe future games are more and more dependant on multi-core cpu's and i think the multi-threaded i7's are better prepared to deal with these upcoming titles.

Besides, i build with as much processor power as possible because i usually keep my pc's for at least 3 years and i can easily upgrade the rest like graphics cards, mem or whatever.

BTW DDR4 isn't for 2013, it was just a rumor.

Intel Cores are not for gaming PC, better use AMDs. With AMD the PC can run without graphics card and its same powerful.

In January I took delivery of a 64bit gaming system I had built at NCIX (in Canada) and chose the Intel i5-4460 Haswell (3.2 GHz) processor for its many fine reviews and it cost me only $229 CDN (it should be much less than that in the U.S.). The same can be said for the MSI Z97 Gaming 5 mobo I ordered, though I did splurge on the vCard; an MSI GeForce GTX 970 TwinFrozr (4GB) to help smooth things out.
