best rig set up

Recommended Posts

Assuming these are parts you have lying around your house, and you want to use them in a build, the 780 is the better GPU choice by far, but CPU might be a bit harder. The 6600K is a fair bit newer than the 3770K, but 4c/4t CPUs are really starting to struggle in newer games. I'd take the 3770K if you plan on buying a good cooler and overclocking. If you have a limited cooler budget, I'd say it's more of a toss up, since you will be able to overclock the 6600K more on smaller coolers, but the 3770K still brings it's extra threads to the table.
