Hello,

I want to replace my old Dell 530s computer and picked these parts:


CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($46.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($74.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Storage: OCZ Vertex 4 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GT 620 1GB Video Card ($46.98 @ NCIX US)
Case: Corsair 400R ATX Mid Tower Case ($84.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: SeaSonic 520W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($74.98 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($17.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) ($91.99 @ Amazon)

I wanted to keep the price about $900. I happen to like the Corsair case but I am most unsure about the mobo...was also considering GA Z77-D-3-H. I'm not big into gaming but wanted to keep my option open.

Any advice would be appreciated,
George

I would suggest going with a 6670 instead of the 620 because it is about the same price at 49 bucks after rebate and will perform better than the 620. If your not going to be playing games and you don't plan on having a dual monitor setup then you don't need a discrete GPU because Intel's integrated graphics would be fine for your needs. Here's the link for the 6670 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... hics-Cards

If you choose not to run a GPU you could run your system on a 400W power supply probably

You don't need a GPU if you aren't going to be gaming, that i5-3570K has Intel HD4000 graphics that will work fine for watching movies or just browsing the web.

Thanks, but I live on the Eastern shore of NC and there are no microcenters here. I need to get my stuff from either Newegg or Amazon (where I have Prime account)..

Yeah if you're not gaming, you won't need a dedicated GPU. And if you are gaming, that GT 620 will not do.
