i5 build suggestions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm pretty new to PC building (this will be my first time actually) I will be building the computer in 1-2 months and i want some suggestions on parts. I'm designing the build for gaming, and will probably add onto the build later, because i would like to build it for about $1500 Some advice on components would be much appreciated, so without further ado, here are my ideas
Case- Corsair 600t white edition

CPU-Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz

GPU- EVGA gtx670 4GB 256-bit GDDR5

RAM-CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866

Hard drive- Western Digital 1TB 6gb/s Caviar Black

Motherboard-ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77

PSU-SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W

For the time being, I will probably use the stock cooler, or something a little nicer, but would very much like to put in a custom watercooling loop for the cpu/gpu in the next few months

Suggestion/comments/and constructive criticism would be much appreciated

I personally think you can save a bit on the PSU, the one you got is good, but it doesnt seem to be needed. Kinda over kill. Then use the money you saved on a aftermarket cooler. They go for about $30 for a decent one (Hyper 212).

I'm not great at parts myself, but those are my 2cents.

SSD boot drive. Or cache drive.

and you could go down to a 650w or so power supply. If you desire.
