Its only bad aspect is the lack of DIMM slots, but since i'm getting 2 * 8GB modules, it won't be a problem (i don't think that i will need more than 16 GB for the next 3-4 years).
    I haven't read absolutely everything, since some people decided to write their thesis in this forum
    But if you are overclocking a chip, you won't really have the turbo mode. The turbo will be whatever you OC it to (which is generally much higher than the stock turbo).

    16GB ram should be LOTS for now, unless you plan to go into doing 3d renders or something. And even then, 16GB sticks are becoming a thing (if the mobo supports it), so even a few years down the road an upgrade would still be possible without swapping mobos.

    I would agree that since a GPU is not a focus with you, 500 Watts should be plenty in a PSU. Gold will be nice for efficiency.

    And just to put it here again, to anyone mentioning AMD to you, do not go for AMD if you are looking at processor work. They simply can't compete with intel. Last I checked the 8 core AMDs were still slower than 4 core intels.

    Well concerning the RAM, the mobo i'm planning to get supports only 16 GB at max, but i'm not going to change my usage of the computer (not 3D rendering or such...) so i think it should be good for the years to come

    Re: My Planned Build

    why are you choosing an xeon over an i3/i5? xeon's have a slower clock speed and they have a locked multiplier (you won't beable to overclock them despite the motherboard chipset). also you don't really need more than 8gb's of ram if you're not going to be running demanding tasks such as video encoding.

    just wondering, what are you going to be using your build for primarily?

    Re: My Planned Build

    Well i have advised to get an I7-3770K instead of the Xeon so that issue is solved. And concerning the RAM, since i'm probably getting a mobo with only 2 DIMM slots at max and that i'm not gonna upgrade the build in at least 3 years. And concerning my usage, here are the tasks that i'm gonna do on my future build :

    - Convert files from Lossless Formats (FLAC,WAV) To Mp3
    - Watch 10-bit 1080p anime and Blu-ray music videos
    - Decompress huge files
    - Convert M2TS blu ray files to high quality MKV rips

    Re: My Planned Build

    I just read somewhere, that the upcomeing generation "haswell" is soon to be released.
    So maybe if it isn't urgent, you might want to wait for the i7-4770K.

    Furthermore the 500W PSU should be ok. I don't think, it's necessary to be gold-status. If you can save some money, take silver and buy a PSU with cable-management.

    In the moment i have 16GB RAM. Usually i never used more than 4GB. Sometimes when browseing and having a game running behind, i'm slightly over 4GB. So I decided to use 4GB formatted as Harddrive. This heavenly (yes, it HEAVENly ) increases speed for unrar packages, since it's several times faster than SSD.
    I wouldn't base my buying decisions on that fact, but however, if you can, you might
    Having 32GB RAM and useing about 20GB as Harddrive ... seem's nice to me.

    So maybe if it isn't urgent, you might want to wait for the i7-4770K.
    i heard that Haswell is gonna be released in June, but i have 2 questions :
    1) Wouldn't the price of the 4770K be much higher than the 3770K ?
    2) Is it safe to buy a mobo with Z87 chipset while there isn't any feedback about them ?

    Furthermore the 500W PSU should be ok. I don't think, it's necessary to be gold-status. If you can save some money, take silver and buy a PSU with cable-management.
    I have heard that not all PSU avaliable in the market right now are compatible with Haswell, do you mind giving me some advice about a decent silver certified model with Haswell compatiibily ?


    Having 32GB RAM and useing about 20GB as Harddrive ... seem's nice to me.
    Are you talking about RAM-DISK ? How can i set up this feature ?

    Re: My Planned Build

    why would certain psu's not be compatible with Haswell lol? did you know it's possible to use a modern power supply to power a pentium 4 build? xd all they do is convert AC current to DC current and distribute it to the components. it is rumoured that Haswell processors will have a lower TDP aswell.
    also, you really don't need an i7 tbh since a large fraction of programs don't take advantage of hyper-threading. hyper-threading just doubles the amount of cpu cores virtually, you don't actually get a 50% performance increase; in reality, you only get a 5-10% performance increase since most programs aren't programmed in a language modern enough to even know what a hyper-thread is, in other words they aren't concurrent. therefore, you could probably save 100 quid by buying an i5 3570k which is the same as the i7 3770k but without hyper-threading; cpu prices will probably decrease aswell due to the fact the haswell is going to get released soon.

    if your budget is around $500-700, take a look at http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/ZDW6 - i didn't include the graphics processor because idk if you're going to be using ur pc to game or not.

    you should plan your builds on pcpartpicker before you buy them to make sure the components will function when combined with others. it also can help you decide on what you need specifically.

    The problem with waiting for the next gen for something like this is that there is always a next gen coming out.
    I guess if you aren't in a hurry, might as well.
