do not get that power supply and do not get that hdd, both have relatively high failure rates. replace the power supply with something by corsair, antec, xfx, silverstone, or rosewill. as for the HDD, go with WD.

Replace the MSI mobo with Gigabyte UD3H,go with WD Blue (i'm fine with the Seagate Barracuda though,your choice),Get Rosewill Capstone 650M Gold Certified or something from Seasonic like the G-550 or G-650(i own it,amazing PSU) You pay 100$ for the case and 55 for the PSU,no way.Get a HAF 912 Plus or Storm Enforcer and invest the rest money in a better PSU.Get a CPU cooler like the Hyper 212 Plus .The rest seems good to me.

Pretty much all this. I wouldn't get a seagate drive. As for psu, I'm not sure. I have corsair and it's great.


Also if you plan on overclocking, do what hotwheels said and pick up a 212+. If you don't want to overclock, you won't need it but it will be essential if you do.

For me,UD3H is the best bang for the buck motherboard for overclocking with a budget. ~sum build (Click to show)

I'd bump to the Z77A-G45 for $5 more.
http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/part/msi-motherboard-z77ag45
Then the Seagate 1TB single-platter drive which is significantly faster.
http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/part/seagate-internal-hard-drive-st1000dm003
Cheaper Mushkin Silverline.
http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/part/mushkin-memory-997002
That Thermaltake is pricy and doesn't have any befenits vs. cheaper cases, I'd take either of those:
http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/part/antec-case-one
http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/part/nzxt-case-s210002
http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/part/nzxt-case-m59001bk
http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/part/corsair-case-200r
Thermaltake TR2 is on OCN's Recommended list so you can go with it no problem. thumb.gif
