Graphics Card- EVGA 670 FTW Edition (Free Borderlands 2 Copy!! )
Motherboard- ASROCK Extreme4 Z77
RAM- Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz
Case- Corsair 600T White Special Edition
CPU Cooler- Hyper 212 EVO
Optical Drive- ASUS 24X DVD-RW
SSD- Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD

Power Supply- XFX Core Edition 750W 80 PLUS Bronze
Monitor- ASUS 23.6" 1080p 2MS

So, What do you guys think? Is there anything you guys think I should ad to the build or maybe replace something? I am eager to hear your feedback!

When spending that type of money i would get a better CPU cooler.
Also i would take another SSD, like a Samsung 830 maybe.

You could easely do with a 550W PSU to save some money unless you plan to SLI in the future.

For the rest its a nice build smile.gif

Thank you for the reply! I actually have a Corsair Force 3 SSD currently in my other build and I love it! and I can get the 120GB version for only 80 bucks, Another thing is that I already have the power supply, I got it for 75 bucks! I couldn't pass that deal on... it is a great quality product. I was actually thinking of getting a Corsair H100, what do you think?

Great CPU/mobo choice, GPU is also really good. Case is phenomenal and so are most of the components.

However, I would change three things:
- Get a better cooler (preferably a kit watercooler like the Kuhler 620/920 or Corsair H60/80/100)
- Change your hard drive to a WD or Seagate and also 1Tb, since it really doesn't cost a whole lot more and WD/Seagate are better brands. I prefer WD over other brands. This is minor, but I'm just being picky. rolleyes.gif
- Change your PSU to a Corsair/Seasonic - they are much more well known for PSU's, other brands can be hit or miss sometimes.

Other than that, your build looks great to me! thumb.gif

Thanks for the reply, I actually already have the hard drive and I ordered the power supply the other day, I got it for a real good price, only 75 bucks! and I am also going to get an H100 later on.

XFX Core Edition PSU's are good quality PSU's no worry's there wink.gif
To much for your build but for 75$ a steal !

The H100 is an allright cooler, there are air coolers that are a bit cheaper and perform similar though, the H100 does look great i think.

Yeah I think the H100 will look great in the build!
post #8 of 12
Alright, I'm always skeptical when it comes to less popular PSU's. The HDD is also not a big deal, you will definitely be fine with the Hitachi.

I would seriously consider the H100 for performance and aesthetics. It does perform a smidge better than the top end air coolers, but I think the main selling point is the amount of room it opens up in your case and how much better it looks than the Noctua or Silver Arrow setup.

Yeah I am really leaning towards the H100, only around 60 dollars more and it looks really nice...
