    New system check, want to make sure parts work together.

    It's been 10yrs since my last build so I am not on top of all the lateset and greatest like I used to be. My question is what I have picked it is going to work together as a system.

    So far I have picked out he following for a higher end machine.

    Mobo ASRock Z77 Extreme6 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    CPU Intel core i7 4000K 3.4g 4x256K L3 8Mb

    Memmory CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

    Case Antec1200 or Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case,

    GPU EVGA GeForceGTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    HDDx2 Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

    Psu Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W or CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850M 850W

    blu-ray burner LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL
    3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM

    OS Windows 7 Homes

    A little more budget freindly would be

    CPU Intel core i5 2500K 3.3g 4x256K L2 6Mb L3

    GPU GIGABYTE GV-N66TOC-2GD GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    HDD Western Digital WD Black WD5003AZEX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    BTW, how much performance difference would I see between the i7 4000K 3.4g and the i5 2500K 3.3g ??

    Thanks

    Should work just fine.

    Whether you would notice any difference between the two processors would be dependent upon the type of programs you run. For games, I doubt you would notice any difference, but I wouldn't guarantee that since I don't keep up with the plethora of games available. Personally, I buy i7 processors over i5's every time. For most customer's, i3's are plenty.
