A friend of mine asked me recently when I was going to upgrade my machine again, he knows I always do and wants to buy my current one which means I can start with a new build. I spent a lot of time the other day researching the best bang for your buck vs performance, this is my current list as of October 2012 and I will update occasionally.

  • Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
  • Proccessor / CPU - Intel Core i5 3570K
  • CPU Cooler - Corsair Hydro Series H60 CPU Cooler
  • Memory / Ram - Kingston HyperX 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600MHz
  • Graphics Card - GeForce GTX 650 Ti -OR- Radeon HD 7770
  • Chassis / Case - Antec Nine Hundred Two V3
  • Power Supply - Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W 80+ Bronze
  • Hard Disk 1 - Samsung 830 Series 128GB SSD (2.5", Sata 6Gb/s)
  • Hard Disk 2 - Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD 3.5" (64MB Cache, 7200RPM, Sata 6Gb/s)
  • Hard Disk 3 - Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD 3.5" (64MB Cache, 7200RPM, Sata 6Gb/s)
  • Optical Drive - Samsung DVD-RW SH-222BB Sata Black Bulk

I am no expert so feedback and suggestions are welcome but when I look at performance vs price and what is available at my local online shops this is where I am currently at.
