My System Specs


Interesting website I did not know about. Thanks for sharing.

I would not skimp on a HSF - the stock offerings do really suck. I'm still in favor of the Coolermaster Hyper 212+.
Why choose such a MB? There are cheaper ones, like this MSI: MSI Z77A-G41 ATX LGA1155 Z77 DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI SATA3 DVI HDMI CrossFireX USB3.0 Motherboard - MSI/MicroStar - Z77A-G41
Then go for a 120Gb SSD, which are becoming dirt-cheap these days.

edit: similar configuration as yours, for 23$ more you get a Hyper 212+ AND an Intel 520 120Gb SSD.
Intel Core i5-3570K, MSI Radeon HD 7870, Cooler Master HAF 912 - System Build - PCPartPicker Canada
Hydro-Quebec is salivating...
