Don't really want to go over the price much if at all, any thing that should be changed that will get obvious improvements in performance?

The GPU seems pretty overpriced.

I can price match it, or is there one way better for the motherboard?

edit: or is this one a lot better?

Nope.

Not sure why would you get a 3570k when you can go with the newer 4570k and Z87 motherboard

The SSD is overpriced,you can get a good 250gb for 150$

GPU is overpriced and a bit dated. Just get a GTX 770 for that price

do you mean 4570s? I can't find the 4570k. And are you sure the 4570 is faster, it says 2.9 ghz where the 3570k is 3.4

damn that first build is crazy:

1)the ram won't bottleneck it?

2)will it have the psu for adding an ssd?

Its a dated build.

I would go with something like the following... CLICK HERE! Main points below:

  • i5 4670K with a good cooer
  • MSI G45 Z87 Gaming board that supports SLI and Crossfire giving you options
  • Corsair GS800 2013 PSU is a great PSU and give you upgrade SLI options
  • GTX 780 with a EVGA ACX after market cooler on it that is considered one of the best around
  • 8GB 1600Mhz RAM... You don't need more or faster RAM for gaming right now or in the next year or two
  • 120GB EVO SSD for OS and 1TB Caviar Blue HDD for storage
  • Thermaltake Chaser A31 is a great case for the price

That's my take on what a gaming build for that money would look like.

1 780 is better than 2 760's?
