  1. Recently I've got a job... and I believe its time to upgrade my pc now.... Things I wont change(yet) is my Sapphire 7870XT and my ram 8GB 1333.....
    I've seen some hardware...but I need your help to choose good stuff... (my budget is max 650 euro)

    Case : http://www.aerocool.us/pgs/pgs-b/mechatron_b.htm [aerocool.us]

    Motherboard: http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z87 Pro3/ [asrock.com] OR http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z87M Pro4/ [asrock.com] (which is better?)

    SSD: http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/memory-storage/MZ-7PD128BW [samsung.com] (does this support Trim? )

    CPU: INTEL CORE I5-4670K 3.40GHZ LGA1150 OR INTEL CORE I7-4770K 3.50GHZ LGA1150 (since I use my pc mostly for games...I believe i5 is enough...)

    CPU cooler: coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo

    what do u think? Pls suggest me more hardware if its better and at same price range...

    I would recommend this motherboard instead: http://goo.gl/yXgzQz. That is a good SSD, just make sure 128GB is good enough for your needs, it probably is. The OCZ Vector and Vertex 450 are also good choices. The CM Hyper 212 Evo is great. As for the CPU, the 4670K is more than enough.

    I would recommend purchasing from Amazon or Newegg.

    I agree, a 4670K is enough.

    JC I think you linked to the wrong motherboard, I think you meant the Z87-A which is a better choice over the ASRock ones IMO.

    That is what I said lol. I said the Z87-A was a better choice.

    I never really liked MSI. I still recommend the ASUS Z87-A over both.

    I read the features of that MSI board and I kind of like it. I'd say if you like it, give it a try. I've used MSI, Gigabyte and ASRock motherboards and have no complaints about any of those brands. For me it is more an issue of whether the board has the features I'm looking for at the time. FWIW, my 2¢.

    MSI And ASRock have been great lately.
