    Down and Dirty's Build

    Got Newegg confirmation shipment today. I'll pick up the cpu next week. SSD arrives Tuesday.

    Core i5 3570K or Core i7 3770K (haven't decided)
    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
    16GB G.SKILL Ripjaw Z DDR3
    Gigabyte 2GB Radeon HD 7870 GV-R787OC
    Samsung 840 250GB SSD
    3 x WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM (RAID 5)
    SeaSonic X650W PSU


    Why 16GB? Because it was $100.
    Why 3TB? Because I don't want to worry about backups anymore.
    How much? Just over $1k but I'm looking at keyboard and mouse replacement too.

    I can finally play some BF3.

    Freaking nice brother!!! Unless you do a lot of multimedia, the 3570k is a great gaming CPU for the buck. Either way you will be happy.

    actually the difference between the i5 and i7 is only $40 at my local Microcenter computer shop From Newegg the i5 would have cost me the i7 Microcenter price which I was prepared to pay anyway.
