    Yea its cheaper by like $10 but you can get a $30 MIR at Newegg. I used pcpartpicker.com for pricing. However I may go with Windforce for more air flow.

    Windows 7 Premium 64-bit
    CPU: i5 3570k(OC at 4.5GHz)
    Mobo: AsRock z77 extreme3
    Cooling: Corsair h100 or h80
    HDD: Seagate ST1000DM003
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600 16Gb
    GPU: HIS Radeon HD 7970
    PSU: Kingwin LZG-1000

    Does that look like a good setup?
    • An i7-3770 with hyper threading might do better with rendering, but probably won't help with gaming performance.
      Check to see if AutoDesk rendering performance will be better with 32GB of memory.
    • Recent ASRock motherboard reviews at HardOCP have reported mixed results. Some models had issues and others were quite good.
      Do your homework and choose your motherboard brand/model carefully.
      There have been quite a few threads in the TweakTown ASRock forum with pci-e 3.0 video cards not working and/or many higher end video cards not being recognized. In many cases, an updated or beta bios was required to fix the problem.
    • I highly recommend using a synchronous or toggle NAND 120 - 240GB ssd as an o/s boot drive and use a hard drive for storage and all other files. Keep in mind that many games require a lot of disk space when installed. I prefer Western Digital Black hard drives.
    • Look closely at the hard drive warranty period, many only have a one year warranty!!
    • Check with Corsair tech support and verify that your current Vengeance memory model has been tested with the z77 motherboard that you will be using.

    There will be excellent holiday sale prices at places like Newegg starting in mid to late November and continuing until January 1st.
