Re: Building a new PC - Help!
Well here again, it all depends on the purpose of the PC.
Few things right off the bat though, is I would change the brands of several parts. The PSU, the SSD, and the motherboard I would change. Personally I would change the GPU over too because of what I put in the other thread, but some aren't bothered by that.
Next I wouldn't have bought the aftermarket cooler for a CPU that can't be OC'd at all.
Finally, would have went Haswell. For gaming, the 4670k, for actual productivity the 4770k. Here again on a personal level, would have gone with the 4670k anyways. I owned a 3960x and I'm not bothered by HT at all. Think it's pointless.
Edit: Saw your post after posting.
Definitely, change the CPU. You don't need a 3770k. Get a 4670k instead, and then I would change the motherboard to an ASRock Extreme 3 Z87. Next up, ditch the aftermarket cooling, as it isn't needed to shed some cash.
Change the SSD brand to something much better. Corsair, Samsung, Intel. My choice would be these in order, Corsair Neutron GTX, Corsair Force GT, Samsung 840pro, Intel 520.
I would also change the PSU to a Seasonic or a Corsair. You don't need 850w in power or anywhere close to it. A 650w would be just fine here so I would get the Seasonic X Gold 650w or Corsair HX650.
Sorry it took so long for the edit, TF went down I guess.
