Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I73770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000

Pros: I'm at a loss of words with this CPU.

My main usage is gaming. I have a GTX 780ti and before this cpu I had an i5 2500k running at 4.7GHz. Initially I was unsure of whether I needed an upgrade at all; anywhere I went I was told that I would see little to no performance improvement.

They were wrong.

Well, they were partially wrong. You see, My average fps didn't go up by much; I'd say about a 5-15% improvement depending on the game. What did see major improvements were my frame time variances and minimum fps. And for anyone who knows anything about this stuff, this is HUGE.

I could not get smooth looking games on the 2500k no matter how high I clocked it. Yes, I did see pretty high framerates but it all felt very jittery, uneasy. Microstutters were driving me insane. And I refused to believe that it was caused by my 780ti. So I decided I would take the risk of potentially blowing ~$300 on a needless purchase.

I am not disappointed.

I will never buy anything less than i7's. Ever.

Cons: Run's really hot if you try to push the multipliers too high. Definitely doesn't handle an overclock like Sandy Bridge, but it seems to run just as well or better at moderate overclocks as the 2500k ran at monster overclocks.

Other Thoughts: I feel like I have to go back and replay everything I had every played from how smooth it all looked. I can not wait for the GSYNC monitors.

MSI GTX 780Ti GAMING G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card

Pros: The card simply rips through anything you throw at it. I have yet to find a game that makes it break a sweat. Super smooth gaming. The temperatures are amazing and the card is super quite. If you have the money, it's a no brainer.

Cons: Card is really long; make sure you have enough clearance in your case.

No back plate.

Other Thoughts: Nothing negative could be said about this card without sounding like a nit-pick. You really can't go wrong with this one.

Pros: Upgraded from a gtx 275. I really can't put the differences into words. It's just a really great card. I have it paired with an Intel core i5 2500k and it barely ever breaks a sweat in any games but the most demanding ones at highest of settings (and i mean absolutely high settings). In these case you would get in the 40-50 fps range, which is still very much playable. If you're on the fence and only have 350 to spend. Don't keep thinking about it, just buy this card.

Cons: Didn't have enough money to get 2 of these.
