My System Specs

Default New Gaming PC Build Opinions

Hi Guys,

First post just thought I would post my specs. I'm almost done my build but woudl still like to hear what you people have to say(good or bad). I tried to keep my budget around ~$800 cnd.

ASRock Z77 Extreme 3 Socket 1155 - 89.99
ASUS 7850 2GB - 189.00
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1866MHz - 29.99
Zalman Z11 Plus - 44.99
Samsung 840 128GB SSD - 89.99

Total so far(tx incl.): $501.68

Will most likely go with a 750W modular PS and the i5 3570k. I'm really debating wether it's really worth going quad core or dual core. Any thoughts on this ? I would think the quad core would be more "future proof" but it seems like any i3 would be equally competitive for today's games.
