Hi all, New user in search of some validation on components I'm looking to order this week. My near 3 year old AMD X3 (445) has finally just about reached it's limit. Looking for some future proofing here, and will use it for light to moderate games, they're not super intensive (Civ 5, new Sim City, some FPS, etc). Unlikely to overclock (though I did with my AMD to unlock the 4th core) - but you never know. US based - 100% committed to Intel + NVidia. AMD has fallen behind here. Note - this won't be my I'll be reusing: - Antec 900 case - 16 GB (4x4) Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 1600 (Not the fastest, but it'll do) - Optical drive Here's the build: Power Supply- SeaSonic X Series X-850 Motherboard - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 CPU - Intel i7-3770K Heatsink - Noctua NH-D14 Graphics - MSI N670 PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670 SSD - Samsung 830 512gb SSD That sneaks me a bit over where I'd like to be, but 1,500 isn't a hard limit. My hesitations here are: SSD. While I'm 100% committed to going with a primary SSD, I'm reluctant to build around the 830, as it's been replaced by the 840. Everything I've read to date indicates that the 830 is the superior drive, so that's my justification here. That being said, since I do plan on eventually adding 2-3 more and attempting to setup a RAID, the 830 will be impossible to find by that point. Graphics. Am I making an error going with the 670? I've seen mixed thoughts here. The 680 seems only marginally better, and is ~30% more expensive. And, the 690 is completely out of my budget right now. I'm also a little concerned about the spacing on the Noctua heatsink. I have low profile RAM already, but I've seen mixed thoughts on how it fits together with the ASRock. Thanks ya'll!
