670 is plenty for 1 screen.. 2500k will allow you to clock high.. you'll see no real world difference between these at single monitor up to 1920x1200..
The PSU is good for 3 cards.. suggest backing off it unless you are going that route.. 850watt will be plenty for 2 680's.


Grab either a noctua NH D14 or corsair H100 for cooling to push the limits on conventional cooling.

Yeah the 680 is EXTREME for sure.. I got the 660ti PE and not complaining at all. 670 is a great choice as well. But if you're a overclocker the say the 660ti PE can reach within 5% of the 670 performance.

PSU: New rule of thumb from Linus is 1000W PSU is more than enough for any gaming pc you're willing to put together.

SSD's are kind of quirky... Id go with something other than the OCZ. Corsair, Samsung, etc....

When I put my build similar to this together I read a lot about ASrock boards and was told pretty much to stay away. I've never owned one so I can't say anything there. Only thing I can suggest with the Mobo is Asus or MSI. Had great success with both. Running the Asus P8Z77-V LK right now and it's a great board for gaming. Great price tag as well. Running a 2500K @ 4.4GHZ No sweat with a ZALMAN CNPS9500. Idle temps 27C-29C, Load temps under P95 never reach above 67C. Did have to use AS3 thermal paste tho.

Gaming performance is what you're after, Go with the 2500K you don't need a i7.

Keyboard, I bought a Razer Blackwidow and completely hate it. Corsair K60 or K90 if you need macro's and Backlight.

Mouse, Logitech G9X :)

IMO BenQ monitors are slightly overpriced when you can get a Asus that'll live up to the same performance.
Actually a lot of the ppl at MLG were complaining about the BenQ monitor. Saying they want the Asus back.

Just my 2 cents I put my build together about a week ago for a little over $1500 If you need anymore suggestions lmk

3570k should last about as long for gaming as a 3770k.. games are few and far between that use 2 threads nevermind 4.. and all a 3770k has is extra threads.

A 3770k may last a little longer than a 3570k but I doubt enough to justify the extra spend.. As for the GPU, you'll be looking at upgrading in about 3 years anyway if you want to stay up with the graphical requirements..

Generally I would advise an i53570k based system for about 5 years before a new base is required and something like a 670 will do for about 3 years when you'll want a re-fresh to stay at high level gaming..
The extra cost of the 3770k and 680 are IMO for most people best saved and put into the refresh in a couple of years as a $300 card in 3 years time will likely be twice as fast as a 670.. Better use of your budget in the long run.

Any z77 board will be compatible. I would go for an Asus myself, any of the above should be good though.. Just compare the features each provides and select the best for your needs.
