Re: Help: Building High End Gaming PC
Drop the X79 setup. Save yourself some money and get better performance in games at the same time. Get a Z77 board and a 3770k. If this is for games and no video editing, Photoshop, or anything like that then 8GB is more than plenty, and 1600mhz at that.
Drop the Cooler Master PSU. 1st reason being, even with dual cards 1200w is way too much. Next thing, they don't make very good PSUs at all. Get a Corsair 650w or 750w HX and that will be more than plenty.
Next thing, dual 7770s isn't that great. Get a single 670 or if budget permits dual 660ti cards. Be way more performance and without the hassle of AMD drivers.
Any DVD burner will do.
Keyboard and mouse are more personal preference really. You would probably do good with any gamer oriented keyboard, but for a really good mouse I suggest going to a local PC shop (Best Buy, Frys, Comp USA, whatever) and testing out mice. A mouse IMO can make or break a PC gamer.
Monitor, any size you are comfortable with, 1080p or above.
Wifi Adapter, if you need range (multi story house, distance, ect) then get a PCI-E 1x N card. If not, an N USB adapter would do fine.
No need at all for a sound card.
