need advice on my new pc

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!
I just held my 15th birthday and i'm so excited that i finally have enough money to buy a new pc! Coming from a 2 year old i3 based laptop, this will be so powerfull.
I've been looking at hardwarre for the past year to keep up with all the new stuff, so i'm pretty sure about what to buy, and what not to buy. but i've still planned to put it on a forum, becaause i know there's people that know alot more to this than me.

so here is my new build:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K
CPU cooling: Corsair H100i
motherboard: MSI Z77 MPower
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3
GPU: MSI GTX680 Lightning OR MSI R7970 Lightning
PSU: corsair AX760i 80+ Platinum
SSD: Samsung 840PROseries 128GB
HDD: Western Digital BLACK 1TB
Lighting is done by an NZXT Hue RGB
CASE: Corsair Obsidian 650D
OS: Windows 7/8
Monitor: Benq XL2420T

From the parts above, i would like to hear your opinions on this build.
I have no such limit on my budget, but around $2100. Also, price may differ from the US, as i am located in Denmark
This will be used mainly for gaming FPS games.
I will buy myself some proper peripherals when the Corsair k95 keyboard and m95 mouse gets released into shops.

PSU is way overkill 550 watts would be more then enough for a single card system also the 7970 is faster then a GTX 680

Last save some money and get a good air cooler unless you plan on having massive overclocks on your CPU

I saw you are from denmark which part are you from?

i have the same motherboard, it's fantastic!
also recommend that you go 7970 and windows 7
as for power supply, i personally like the seasonic brand and imo there's no better quality.

since you have a K model i'd say the h100i is a good buy. if you overclock you'll want that liquid cooling.
i have the older h100 (non i) and am very happy with it with i7-3770k @ 4.5ghz
one thing i would reccomend is using liquid ultra pro. in most situations i drop 5-10c using that vs AS5
it is conductive so using a lot is not recommend because you can fry the motherboard or gpu that you apply it onto. also this is NOT a TIM for anything aluminum as it kills the structure integrity of aluminum and eats away at it. all other metals will be fine.

Yes i am from Køge

Since you are a first time builder as i understood it i am going to make sure you get it right the first time and not make a mess at things like i did when i was 15

The best PC shop hands down on Sjælland is in København on Amagerbrogade 50 to be precise i have used this shop for 7 years and i have never ever had a single problem with him the shop or anything i bought

This is his website http://computergrej.dk/

Due note that he does not sell anything from his website you want something you have to call send a email or show up in the store

There is dataengros which untill a few years ago was a great shop and there is fønix computer which has always sucked and there are some other shops here and there but NONE of those comes even close to Computergrej in customer service and pure knowledge of what he is doing.

7 years i have shopped there and not once did i have a question he could not answer and pretty much all i buy is from him
Just read the reviews http://www.trustpilot.dk/review/www.computergrej.dk

go for the 7970 and yes the PSU is overkill but enough headroom for XFIRE.
