Hello, just really quick: I would like any experienced or new computer gurus to take a look at this build and tell me if I need/don't need anything else. Anything is appreciated, thanks. :D
My budget is around $2000.
Things not listed: a tv tuner and a vga cooler for my gpu, as it is superclocked.

Welcome to the forums! I hope you enjoy building computers as much as I do.

Few things:
  • Everything looks compatible so there are no issues there
  • 850W Gold is overkill for the PC you've assembled. This Corsair 600W PSU is more than sufficient for your needs and will save you almost $100
  • A velociraptor is very dated technology, not to mention extremely noising when spinning at full bore. I would recommend you opt for an SSD/HDD combination. You can get a very nice, and fast, 240GB Samsung SSD and a standard 1TB HDD. The SSD will get you speeds far faster than the velociraptor and the HDD can be used to store your large libraries of music, photos, etc

Hope this helps.

I'd get an H80i instead of the H100i, as the H80i is more cost effective. I have one with a i5-4670K and burning through Prime95 at a 4.6GHz turbo boost, it will keep the processor at 60C in an ambient temperature of about 23C... So that's very good.

Otherwise ditto with what btdog said.

EDIT: Actually I didn't see the price... but I'd check what an H80i costs anyway.

No, we are not going to click your link, codgurl1101. Spammer... Where are the mods when you need them?
