Thanks for any input.
I am thinking i7 3770k, but could be pushed to something else, as I am looking for a nice CPU with some OC abilities that doesn't require liquid. I will update my top post as I decide on stuff.

Do not need: Mouse, kb, monitor, OS, sound card.

I am a Gigabyte fan, but looking for a nice OC combo with a decent CPU and possible upgrade path.


i-7 3770k

CPU Cooler: NOT LIQUID. But something that works nicely with the case and is quiet.

Crucial M4 256GB

Data HD:

GPU: (Nvidia)
GIGABYTE GV-N670OC-2GD GeForce GTX 670 2GB (has the 3 fans on it)

Corsair 850 Watts 80PLUS

No idea. Haven't researched this stuff in a long time.


Antec P280

Current build, depending on cooler choice and how many hard drives I use. Looking at right around $1800.
