Hey guys, I have been doing a fair bit of research on PC parts. The GPU which i have selected for my PC build is the Asus HD7970 ROG Matrix Platinum. I am wanting to spend $750, Max, on the GPU and i have been told that, at $599 this is the best for money in terms of performance, lifetime and OC capability. I have chosen to buy parts, if possible, from my local store. Here is a link to the page which lists the graphics cards available https://www.ple.com.au/ViewCategory.aspx?CategoryId=259. In terms of CPU, I have also been told that, for gaming, the optimal processor to in terms of both price and performance is the i7 3770k 3.5Ghz 8mb. I would like to keep the CPU under $400, because i feel that for gaming, that is all that is nessecary, however please correct me if i'm wrong and if you know of any better processors for gaming, please let me know. Here is the link to processors available at my local store, however i do feel as if the options are fairly limited - https://www.ple.com.au/ViewCategory.aspx?CategoryId=235. I have settled with this GPU and CPU after a fair bit of research and persuation but if you feel as if i could get something more optimal for my budget, please let me know In case you are wondering what the other parts that i have chosen are, heres a link; https://www.ple.com.au/ViewWishlist.aspx?WishlistGuid=781da528-a50c-4f99-8ce1-a6c09089166d. If you would like to give feedback on the other parts i would also appreciate it - I understand that the RAM is overkill Thanks for all of your help and advice so far, just thought i'd let you know where i am at in terms of the build. Sorry if i have not made adjustments according to your feedback, there has been so much good advice and i have had to compromise. Sorry if what i'm saying is repetitive, i have have been given different opinions and advice both on line and from friend and i just want to make sure that i am getting the absolute best that i can for the money i have available.
