Hi,

I`d like to up my computer and I need 3 components:

CPU
MOBO
MEMO

I`ve chosen these:

CPU: i5 3570K (or lesser)
MOBO: ASUS P8Z77-V LE
MEMO: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB)

I want to play games high-end(Battlefield 3) and do some work in the Autocad(3D, lights, render, etc.)
I`ll also make an overlock (Try to reach 5.0 with my Antec H2O 620)

What do you think?

Thank you!
 
My suggestion is either wait till the reviews for the 3570K come out or go with a 2500K. There is a "rumor" currently that Ivy Bridge may not overclock as well as Sandy Bridge (heat issues). Thats why its good to wait for full reviews to come out.

Mobo, go with the Pro. Its a bit more but will be better for overclocking overall.

The memory is perfect though. I have the same setup except I have the 2500K, P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 and 16GB of Corsair Vengance.

I have an Asus EAH6870.

Now I have a Q9550
Asus P5QC

Sadly my P5QC passed away.
I will sell this proc and memo for about US$225

I can play BF3 (online) on 1080p and all High.

I can`t, it`s about $40 higher, and I can`t afford that.

Don`t have much to spend.
I will also see Tom`s and Anandtech`s bench when ivy bridge releases before buying.

Thanks.

I gotta another question about SSD, but I will ask on the right topic.

Thanks.
