    Ok guys totally updated my build. What you think of this now? Still undecided about case for now Processor Intel Core i5-3570K 3.40GHz http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-404-IN CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-035-CM Motherboard Asus P8Z77-V Intel Z77 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-515-AS Ram Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 16GB (2x8GB) http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-347-CS Hard drive Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA 6Gb/s http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-336-WD SSD OCZ Vertex 4 128GB http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-106-OC GPU Sapphire HD 7870 2048MB http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-296-SP Power Supply Corsair Enthusiast Series TX 650W V2 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-037-CS Optical Drive LG BH10LS38 10x BluRay-RW http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CD-106-LG&groupid=701&catid=10&subcat=314 Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-Bit http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=SW-127-MS

    I think you guys are right and the hyperthreading alone is not worth 100+ euros. Its better if I invest it in something else. Seeing all my possibilities and will post the new build soon.

    Sorry that you lost your post fogel but thanks for the very informative explanation you gave me. Will certainly look into the 2 channel ram thing. For current photoshop 16 gb is more than enough but who knows what future versions will need. Then again, probably I would have to change the whole mobo and processor as well.

Would you please review my choice to see if I am choosing the best parts for the money spent ? Please note that this system will have to last me about 4-5 years so I don`t mind spending a bit extra for it to be a bit future proof, if that is possible at all. Thanks Approximate Purchase Date: will order this week if possible Budget Range: 1400-1600 euros System Usage from Most to Least Important: Photoshop and Gaming (equal importance) Parts Not Required: need to buy everything Preferred Website(s) for Parts: http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/ , overclockers.uk , amazon.uk UK shops are only for price reference as I will order my pc build from Scan Malta as they will import the parts for me. Country: Malta . Parts Preferences: no real preference Overclocking: Maybe (Never tried it but probably will do some mild ocing) SLI or Crossfire: No / Maybe Monitor Resolution:1920x1080, 1920x1200 Additional Comments: No bling necessary at all. Would appreciate if the pc was quiet. CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.50GHz http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-403-IN&groupid=701&catid=6&subcat= (Unsure whether hyperthreading will make a worthwhile difference in photoshop and future proofing. Otherwise I will buy an i5 and save myself 115 euros) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-035-CM&groupid=701&catid=57&subcat= (Will I be better off if I buy an Antec Kuhler just in case I try overclocking?) Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/asus-p8z77-v-lx-z77-ivy-bridge-mobo-s1155-pcie3-usb3-raid-at. html (is the Maximus V Gene http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-516-AS much better? Will the mobo make a real difference to the computer performance) Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-310-CS Hard Drive: 3TB Seagate Barracuda http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/3tb-seagate-st3000dm001-3-5-sata3-hard-drive.html SSD: OCZ Vertex 4 128GB http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-106-OC (System will run completely from here. Barracuda only for storage) Video card: GTX 560ti http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/1gb-gainward-gtx-560ti-pci-e-dual-dvi-vga-hdmi.html (was also contemplating HD 7850 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-005-VX as in same price range) Case: Cooler Master Storm Enforcer http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/cooler-master-storm-enforcer-usb3-black-mid-tower-gaming-cas. html (will consider any case as long as priced in 100-140 euros. As long as its quiet and has good ventilation anything will do as not bothered about looks. What I like about enforcer is it has USB3 access on top) Power Supply: 850W Corsair TX V2 http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/850w-corsair-tx-v2-series-atx-4x-pci-e-8x-sata-power-supply.h tml (is this overkill for my system ? ) Optical Drive: LG 10x SATA Blu-Ray Writer http://www.scanmalta.com/eshop/lg-bh10ls38-10x-sata-blu-ray-writer.html Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Keyboard: suggestions appreciated Mouse: suggestions needed
