Approx $1800 build, Australia

Greetings, forum. Being my first post. take it easy on me.

Anyways, I, very soon, will be getting my first build. Now, Im not going to call myself a noob because 1. It makes me look like a 13 year old and I hate 13 year olds, and 2. I do know a fair bit considering i have done about 8 months of research.

I would like the i7 3770k and 7970 ghz edition incorporated in the build but apart from that, its up to you people. 

I do have a build sort of formulated but it is very blurry because i keep changing things.

Keep in mind this is for mostly gaming but also video editing in the very near furure. Also this is from AUSTRALIA, and i will be buying from PC Case Gear.

 

Thanks a bunch and happy Easter!

$1800 in America - awesome computer capable of so much

That should do you well. You could cheap out on the PSU if you wanted but that PSU is amazing and you will thank me in the long run

For god's sake, create the build on pcpartspicker, no one has time to sort through this.

 

Also you'll have two more slots free for ram should you wish to bump up to 32gb in the future

Difference between WD Blue and Black?

 

The black is a faster drive lower seeks, faster read and writes

Don't quite unerstand why yours is so expensive? Apart from the difference between blue and black, my choice of parts rips the balls off yours. Why?

Your pick has Corsair Vengeance ram (shit cheap o ram)  and 2000+mhz is just not needed and  possibly unstable

The mobo is a M-ATX  (realy)

A not needed water cooler and a cheap case 

The parts i picked go better together better,the mobo it a A-TX with a better Phase Power Design and is more suited to over clocking the Hard drive and ssd are about the best you can get

G skill ram is the best (that i can find in the australian area) and will over clock as much as needed 

There is allso a more expencive case 

Maybe do some research before you just random pick things that sound good on paper.

Whats wrong with 13 years olds?  (im 16) but whats wrong with it?

anyway, i found this setup:

let me know what you think... grtz Angel ☻

p.s you can allways decide to switch the cpu cooler to a LC cooler i left room for it ☻

i like angel's build the most, but if you some extra money in your budget go with a sabertooth

Thank you i realy like that.

The reason i choosed the MSI is cause its the little brother of the x79 X power aka (big bang)

The z77mpower gets handtested out of fabrick, they  tested those board with an i5 3570k oc to 4.5 ghz or so for over 24 hours, on full load. So that gives you the guarantee, that its working realy good, cause they get hand tested out of fabrick,And i personaly think its one of the nices´t z77 board to but. i love it.

 

Thanks everyone, 

1. Is the bitfenix shinobi xl a good case?

2. Is the MSI z77a-dg65 a good choice also

3. Is kingston or g.skill better overall?

4. Is the silvertone strider plus a good psu.

5. Lastly, is the intel 335 180gb a good ssd?

Apart from the cpu cooler i think its a good way to go.
