Half purchased build.. seeking some advice

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Parts already purchased:

Windows 7
NZXT Switch 810
i5-3570k
ASRock Z77 Extreme4
8 GB Samsung 1600mhz low voltage RAM
Crucial M4 128GB

To be purchased (most likely):

HD 7970
Corsair TX650v2
Hyper 212 Evo

This is to be my first build. I plan on running without an optical drive and installing windows from a flash drive.

Does the Hyper 212 Evo come with thermal paste or do I need to buy that as well? Is there anything I'm missing? I've never built a computer before.. I'm a little nervous dropping ~$1500+ into this build.

Edit: I'm also looking for any advice on the best PSU for around $100 and the best Heatsink for around $50 for this build. I'll be purchasing from Newegg

Thanks, is the Hyper 212 the best for the money you think? I'll want to be at 4.5 stable 24/7 on my Ivy proc

Also, does it matter which 7970 I buy on Newegg? The powercolor is $480, 460 after rebate with free shipping. Is the Asus DC2 a much better OCer for $490 +shipping?

I don't really want one of those closed water loop heatsinks. I'm about to pull the trigger on a TX650v2, Hyper 212 Evo and a Sapphire OC 7970 on Newegg. Any final suggestions before I do it?

Even with 2 7970s a good 750w would be enough, 850 if you want some headroom for overclocking.

If you aren't planning on getting a 2nd 7970 in the future, go for it. Otherwise like Boyd said, I'd bump up the PSU a little to a 750 or 850. thumb.gif
