    Keep in mind that the PSU above is going to be powering my current rig and im moving the Corsair HX 1000 over to the Z77 rig along with the HD 6870.

    The CPU isn't a K edition. I see 3570 with HD 2500 graphics, not the 3570k with HD 4000 Didn't you want to do some overclocking?

    It sounded like he wanted to get a 3570k, 4ghz is about the max you're going to get with a 3570. It's worth the little extra money to just get the K.

    Its only like another 15 bucks, I'd say its worth it.

    agreed go for the K version, as it should be worth it IMO... unless you already bought the entire stuff >.<

    so the deal fell through. Now is a 3570 a better deal @$179 ? im still cash strapped but should be getting some $$ for Xmas. the 3570 @ that price is a boxing day special and am wondering if i should act on it. Im only looking for a clock of 4ghz anyways and i know these non-k chips can go 4 steps above Turbo multi.

    its been awhile so here's an update. Grabbing a CM Hyper 212 EVO in a few days and going to purchase a PSU in march while saving along the way for the 3570K.

    So the parts list looks like this:

    EVGA Z77 FTW E ATX mobo
    HD 7870 (6870 is unused atm, but the 7870 will go in this PC)
    4GB x2 Mushkin Blackline DDR3
    CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO

    Parts im needing still:

    i5 3570K
    600watts or more PSU (for the current PC, the 1000w will go in this build)
    128 GB SSD (Samsung or Intel)
