I see 2 mobos? also why not get an SSD if you are spending so much money already. And streaming has alot to do with your internet connection uploap/download. speedtest.net

Grah, copy/paste from PM:


Few thoughts:
  • Don't buy an extra motherboard?  I'm guessing that first link was a bad copy/paste.

  • No need to buy extra thermal paste.  The difference between the best thermal paste money can buy and literal melted chocolate is like a few degrees C.  Whatever your stuff comes with automatically will be sufficient.

  • Depending on what you're doing, there's a decent chance you'll get way better performance with a i5-2500k/3570k and overclocked.  I would probably prefer that for basically all gaming rigs.  Throw on an aftermarket cooler (hyper 212+ for example) and overclock it to like 4.5GHz.  You'll get way better game performance than an i7 3770.  If you do go with a -k processor, you have to get a p67/z68/z77 motherboard instead of h77.

  • Very good chance you don't need 16GB RAM.  It really depends on what you're doing.  At home, I barely use 4GB when playing games, browsing the web, etc.  At work, I routinely use >24GB when compiling code... so it depends.  The default amount right now would probably be 8GB in 2x4GB sticks.  You can always bump that up to 4x4GB sticks if you end up needing more.

  • PSU is solid, you can probably drop down to 430~500W if you want, but it wouldn't be the end of the world.

  • You didn't list a case, do you already have one?

  • Consider a SSD if you would like faster game loading screens / general OS snappiness.  Doesn't have to be big, just 60~120G to hold your OS + a few games.

Depending on what you want to stream at, you may want to consider an i7-2600k/i7-3570k.

Newegg was acting weird earlier and I had posted wrong links, fixed now. Any suggestions on a SSD? Never really thought of one as a necessity.

It depends on your workload really, at the mid-end you have SSD's like Crucial M4, Samsung 840, Plextor M3, OCZ Vertex 4, Intel 335. At higher end you are looking at Samsung 840 Pro, Corsair Neutron GTX, Intel 520, Plextor M5 and OCZ Vector. Short of enterprise drives or PCI-E SSDs there are your options.

Do you need 240GB of programs installed?  You can keep all your videos, pictures, whatever on HDD.

Intel would be a solid choice, just not sure if you need that much capacity.  Up to you.
