Smile Components CPU,Motherboard,GPU,RAM,PSU $763 (€585)?

Hi guy's again so i had a bit of thought and now i think i gona buy all my component's for 585Euros.
So here are the Parts i chosen what you think? What do i need to change?

1.CPU http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Genera...2442808&sr=1-1
2.Motherboard http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GA-...2443343&sr=1-1
3.GPU(video) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-7770-Ra...2441200&sr=8-1
4.PSU(power supply) http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMPS...2443591&sr=1-1
5.RAM http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingston-Tec...2442982&sr=8-4
6.Keyboard&Mouse http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microsoft-Wi...2443818&sr=1-1

P.S.Amazone.co.uk using.

It's say's here that it requires 500-600w is that true ? http://www.allstarshop.com/shop/Asus...289_34477.html

Edit:\So i will changet PSU to Seasonic S12II-430 430W in my build

That configuration looks alright, but GPU manufacturers always over-spec their PSU recommendations (just in case you have a Generic 500W which can really only deliver 250W or so without going kaboom). A fully built PC with a core i7 CPU and HD7770 GPU only uses about 230W with the GPU loaded. (http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages..._review,6.html). You'd get away with this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seasonic-S12...2447174&sr=1-2 with no problems at all (and I'd recommend it over the CX600 due to its superior build quality)

Your selection above exceeds your €500 budget a bit. Also, there is no mention of hard disk drive, solid state drive, optical drive, and sound card(?)

Suggested components, and assuming no overclocking -

CPU: Intel i5-3470 at 3.2GHz 4 core <- downgraded CPU a bit to suit budget, but still a very good processor.

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H <- reasonable quality motherboard, a bit better than the GA-Z77-DS3H.

Video Card: Sapphire HD7770 1GB <- good enough for this budget and still a good performer.

RAM: Kingston HyperX 2 x 4GB (8GB total) 1600MHz <- dual channel RAM is suggested to maximize memory bandwidth.

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200rpm

As pointed out by c.hegge, they are basically just being overly cautious about the power requirement to allow for lower grade PSU's.

Actual power requirement for the suggested components (including an optical drive, and a sound card), and allowing for PSU derating due to aging, is around 350~400+W.

PSU: Seasonic S12II 430W is suggested (as per c.hegge's recommendation).

If you go to the manufacturer's homepage and look at System Requirements they explain it a bit better.

Quote:
500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended
600W power supply (or greater) with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connectors recommended for AMD CrossFire™ technology.
Note the 7770 requires only one 6-pin connector.

Go with the Seasonic psu.

I have optical drive and hdd also card reader built in Case. Sound card yes i don't have doesn't motherboard have built in one stock ?

How much is the difference between Intel i5 3470 and Intel i5 3570k 3generation ? Also does the i53470 have 3 generation ? No overclocking

I wan't to use 2gb videocard so later i can use 3monitors.

About Ram How much is difference between Kingston HyperX 1600MHz and Kingston Hyper 10th Anniversary Series 1600MHz ?

Thanks c.hegge

Will it handel an my pc system HDD,RAM,CPU,GPU,Motherboard,Optical Drive,3(Fan to keep it cool) ?

Later on i think i upgrade my CPU cooler.

Thanks for clearing that up!

Yes. The motherboard does have integrated sound, but some people still want to use a separate sound card anyway. That is why the question was asked in case you wanted to use a sound card.

The i5-3470 CPU is a third generation processor, just like the i5-3570k processor.

There is very little difference between the i5-3470 and the i5-3570k.

The i5-3470 runs at 3.2GHz, has slightly lower grade integrated graphics, and is locked (not easily overclocked).

The i5-3570k runs at 3.4GHz, has slightly better integrated graphics, and is unlocked (easily overclocked).

While run at default speeds, I would expect there to be very little, if any, practical difference in performance between the two processors, especially while gaming.

The Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary Series 8GB RAM module you selected is just ONE module. That means that this RAM will operate in slower SINGLE channel mode.

The Kingston HyperX RAM I suggested is a TWO module dual channel kit, which means the RAM will operate in faster DUAL channel mode.

Dual channel mode is usually recommended as it increases available memory bandwidth and should provide better performance than single channel mode.

Thanks brispuss

I buy better soundcard later.

So how much is the FPS between those CPU ? So there wont be much difference in gameing.

Is it that bad 1kit 8gb single ?

There is only a 200MHz difference in clock speed between the i5-3470 and the i5-3570k processors. As mentioned before, I would expect very little, if any, noticeable difference in frame rates (FPS) while gaming.

A single module is not bad. You can use just one module with no problems. However. If you want to maximize the performance of your computer, then it is recommended that TWO modules from a DUAL channel kit be used.
