Thread Starter 
Okay. Hey guys. I'm Atish and i want to build my first custom pc. I've picked out the part and want to post them to see if you guys can help me decide better parts or tell me if something won't work. I'd appreciate anything that can making my PC better with a similar value...maybe even less for a similar performance. Thank you for all your help.

Purpose of pc:
gaming, recording and rendering videos(youtube tutorials...and maybe game commentary), surfing the web biggrin.gif

Case: Rosewill Blackhawk Gaming ATX mid tower - http://goo.gl/Wbgx3
Motherboard: Asus p8z77-v - http://goo.gl/qCfic
Processor: i5 3570K ( overclock to 4.5 GHz )- http://goo.gl/vBsDf
CPU cooler: Corsair H80 - http://goo.gl/qBW9W
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x 4GB) - http://goo.gl/IsLMs
Hard drives: OCZ Vertex 4 - http://goo.gl/BhA0p

Optical Drive: Asus 24x DVD burner - http://goo.gl/0rkRC
GPU: i'm going to order the parts and use the computer and then buy the gtx 670 or 660 when it comes out biggrin.gif <- good idea?

Total cost without GPU is $1,183 X_x..plus $100 for yeti mic

Everything looks good. I think you might want to look in a different direction than the vertex 4 ssd. Seems like the crucial, intel, or corsair ssd's are far better option as far as speed. I could be wrong on that though. No kill me if I am.

If you want to save money now and then get the 670 later that is fine. I know the sandy bridge cpu did alright playing a game like Duke Nuke Em forever. Had to lower some settings, lol.

I also suggest a full tower case like this.

Way more room for making changes. The one you have will be fine though.

Oh, I would love a full tower Corsair Obsidian case <3. Alas, my father is paying for it so i do not want to spend too much on things that i don't really need.

As far as the vertex 4 goes, I was searching for the fast for value and the vertex 4 is much better than the Crucial m4 (In most places). I would have bought that if the Vertex 4 hadn't been released. Plus, I found this popular SSD guide, Sean's SSD Buyers Guide. It has stuff like which one is currently the best and how to optimize Win 7 and 8 for SSDs. Must kill you.. wink.gif http://goo.gl/Aqwpz

and thank you for your help biggrin.gif
