Hey so i build my first pc last year. I was sadly in a little rush, So i did not have the time to fully get into it. At first i made what i belived was a awesome build, sadly it was way to expensive. So i had downgraded some componets. Now my financial situation is way better, and i woud like to find out if their is a weak spot in my system.

So my curent build is: pcpartpicker

Cpu: INTEL CORE I7 3770K 3.5GHZ

Motherbord: GIGABYTE Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H

Memory: CORSAIR VENGEANCE 16GB (2X8GB) DDR3 LP PC3-12800 1600MHZ CL10

Storage: INTEL 520 SERIES 2.5" 120GB SSD

          WD Black WD2002FAEX 2tb

VideoCard: ASUS GEFORCE GTX 670 2GB

Powersupply: Corsair AX760

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus

(Wend i orded this i misorderd the Cpu fan, and have theirfore been using the intel fan that followed the cpu. Someting tells me this is not to good)

Thanks in advance TheSettler

There is nothing bad with the stock cooler if you are not overclocking it. What i recommend you do is either overclock both your gpu and cpu. To do this get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO to cool your cpu. If still arnt satisfied with your performance get a gtx 970 but still overclock you cpu casue that's still a good cpu

I looked into overclooking again... Sory to say it's way to complicated... That Gtx 970 does look good tho, however as a heavy gamer do i need it? Also woud it not be a idea to get a non stock cooler even tho i woud prefair keeping the stock speeds?

What are your cpu temps when you are playing? There would be no advantage of buying a cpu cooler if you arnt going to overclock. The gtx 970 should give you great fps. It is the best price to performance on the market in my opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CHs5_TdpXE if you want to look a little more into overclocking that cpu

Depending on the board, it's as simple as heading into the BIOS and upping a number (just don't touch voltages for the love of god).
