Approve my i5 3570k 660ti build!

Hey all,


My first post on here so be nice! Big fan of the videos so thanks for all the them guys.

I have finished my specs for my new gaming build and welcome any opinions.


Intel i5 3570k 3.6Ghz                                   CPU

MSI Power Edition 660 ti                              GPU

Corsair Vengance 1600Mhz 8GB (2x4GB)  RAM

MSI Z77-G45                                               MOTHERBOARD

Windows 7 home premium 64 bit                OPERATING SYSTEM

Razer Deathadder 3500dpi                         MOUSE

Coolermaster elite 430                                CASE

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB                                   SSD

Novatech 600W Silent Modular                    PSU

Benq GL2450HM 24" Led                            MONITOR

Antec Twocool 140mm blue fan                   COOLING


For my budget of £1000 I need a new computer, gaming monitor and mouse. I love my deathadder so I will be getting another, this one just broke. I already have a steelseries mousemat and optical drive and wifi card.

I look forward to hearing things, I want to be able to to play bf3 and dayz etc on high-ultra 60fps.

I am welcome to overclock in the future with a better cpu cooler and the msi software.



i would go with the amd fx 8350

looks awsome maybe consider a samsung 840 ssd.  The i5 is great for gaming if you have the budget for it.

id do the MSI Z77A-GD65 if you wanna stay MSI or if you have the cash go with the Asus P8Z77-V PRO. I love that mobo to peices.

Stick with the I5 and if you want im pretty sure the 250gb version of the samsung 840 is like 170$ (in canadian) unless the Ocz is a good bit cheaper get that. best build for you go with this build just take the parts and use them in you country this a canadian build

Thanks for the feedback guys. I didnt want a Samsung because of the slower write speeds, I dont mind paying a bit more for some of the fastest currently out.

Is there anything wrong with the MSI z77 g45?


 Ditch the ssd and go with a mehanical hardrive i think ssds are pointless unless you have a 2k + budget i would put the extra money you get and get a cpu cooler and oc that i5 or get upgrade 2 a 670
