So far ive decided on intel core i7 3770k
gigabyte geforce gtx 680
256 ssd
2 tb hdd
and the sabertooth 990 FX motherboard
Can anyone recommend a cooling system if i need one?
And am i missing anything else? besides a case and power both still undecided
cant put an intel chip in a 990fx motherboard ;)
if its the sabertooth you want, there is a Z77 Sabertooth.
I would highly recommend the corsair H80/100, my H80 is more than ample cooling for my overclock. As for power, 80Plus bronze 850watt and above is a good thing to go by, gives you the option of a 2nd gpu if you feel like it in the future. If you want to spend the big bucks, Lian Li cases are nice, but NZXT, HAF X and corsair cases are also very nice.
