I tried making a post last night but I'm not sure if its waiting to be approved right now or it just didn't submit.
So I'm reposting. Sorry if its a double post.
Currently I am trying to build a new gaming pc. Would like to make purchases within the week.
My budget is around $700-$900
OS: Already have Windows 7 Home 64
Monitor: 1920x1080 - ASUS VH236H 23-Inch Full-HD 2ms LCD Monitor
SSD: Already have SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC256B/WW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
No need for the OS, Monitor, SSD, Mouse, Keyboard, or Speakers
Prefer not to overclock.
Not sure what SLI or Crossfire is.
Everything else I am unsure of because this is my first time building a pc.
This is what I've come up with so far:
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($26.82 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($144.99 @ NCIX US)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($50.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 1.25GB Video Card ($239.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Antec Nine Hundred ATX Mid Tower Case ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($38.91 @ NCIX US)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($16.99 @ Newegg)
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
Some questions/concerns I have:
I'm not sure if I should be getting the Gigabyte mobo or ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Also not sure which video card is best to get. Was thinking maybe 660ti or 570.
For the case I'd like an easy cable management but not sure which one I should get. Cases seem rather pricey, but I'd like to stick to under $80 if possible.
I'm not sure if the PSU is enough or if I should get something stronger.
Please let me know if you need any other information if I didn't include enough.
Thanks for the help in advance!
