It will be used mostly for gaming, the closest to hardware requiring applications I use are probably photoshop and visual studio. For now, I don't plan to do any overclocking so using stock cooling, low-power PSU, but I want the option in the future.
Can you guys tell me any better options?
If you know where I can get the same parts at other places for cheaper that would be cool too (I chose tiger direct for some of these since I would not have to pay tax in CA)
Here's the current list:
Case: Corsair 200R (Newegg) - $30 After Rebate (+tax in CA)
PSU: Corsair CX430 (Tiger Direct) - $30 After Rebate
CPU: i7 3770K (In-store at Microcenter) - $230 (+tax in CA)
- I wanted to get an i5 3570K instead but it's out of stock at my microcenter
MOBO: ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 (In-store at Microcenter) - $95 (If combo deal still exists) (+tax in CA)
GFX: Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti 2GB (Tiger Direct) - $280 After Rebate
- I'm not sure about this, really want input on better choice
Memory: Samsung 2x4GB 30nm (Newegg) - $35 (+tax in CA)
SSD: Samsung 840 (non-pro) 250GB (Tiger Direct) - $180
