I thought i'd revive this thread. I'm building a computer after exams (in 1 week- im procrastinating right now) and was hoping for some opinions on this and if any parts should be changed. I'm limited to a 1k AUD budget. and these parts put it just a little over which is ok. I know a little about computers, but i haven't been up to date in the last few years in regards to parts and what's out at the moment. I'll be using it for all around use and Gaming. CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K Mobo: GA-Z77X- UD3H (possibly the version with wifi as well ) RAM: G.skill 8gb (2 x 4gb) 1600Mhz (not sure which exact one yet) HDD : 1tb Caviar Blue GPU: Sapphire OC 7850 2gb PSU: Antec TP-750 Case: Corsair Carbide 400R HSF necessary? Just going to use a spare optical drive i already have. I'm not goign to OC it yet, but its a possibility in the future i want to keep open. THe main parts im not really sure of is Mobo and RAM. there's so many different ones out there at the moment . Thanks.
