Long-time lurker. Looking for some input as it’s finally time to upgrade my ageing PC. As per my specs, it’s currently an E8400 clocked at 3.6 with a frankly awful and loud Palit 4850 (http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=71546). Recently my machine has taken to restarting randomly during or after periods of high utilization. I'm guessing it’s either the video card or the PSU on the way out. I've backed off the OC, cleaned the dust, added cooling etc. The reality is that I've spent as much time on it as I'm willing to so I’m looking towards a new build as the 4850 isn’t cutting it these days anyway. I’ve been keeping up with hardware and have been eyeing upgrading for a long time, however as always life has a tendency to get in the way of these things. Anyway, I’m looking at the machine primarily as an everyday / gaming build @1920x1200 as will be reusing a 2408Wfp but I am keen to keep storage options open. I’d also like it to be as quiet as possible. I’m looking at roughly the following config, but I can’t make up my mind on the motherboard. I've had great experiences with Asus in the past but given the diversification of the ROG line it seems like there are now too many options at too many different price-points. What I really like about the Asus boards vs the others is the granular level of fan control and the UEFI implementation. I’m in Australia and looking to keep the build between 1.5-2k. CPU: I5-3570k (Wanting to keep OC’ing options open) MOBO: Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe - Open to suggestions. RAM: 16gb (2x8gb) Corsair CMZ16GX3M2A DDR3 1600 GPU: Gigabyte GTX670 2gb – Open to suggestions. SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256gb PSU: Corsair AX760 (Probably overkill but looking for a quiet gold/platinum unit) CASE: TBD (Leaning toward Corsair 600T but wish it had been updated at CES) Any input or thoughts are welcome. I’m thinking Ill recycle the old CPU, Mobo and Ram and PSU into an HTPC build.
