Need help with pc build

I have all the parts picked out but I'm not sure if everything is compatible and if I got things that I don't really need.

Everything is compatible although there is no need for the hard drive or ram cooler. The parts you selected do not put out enough heat to warrant that kind of cooling so use that money to get a better cooling for your processor. I would suggest this:

It will allow you to overclock the processor significantly more which will make games and simulators run more smoothly thumb.gif

Wow thanks! I didn't want to go with water cooling because I heard it was really high maintenance, but that cpu cooler looks great. Also, I was afraid of messing up the components with water cooling.

A few things.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/X391

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100 92.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($107.13 @ TigerDirect)
Much better then the Hyper 212 evo, and watercooling has next to no risks with corsair. If it does leak (very slim chance) they replace not only the h100, but anything the leak broke.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($124.99 @ Newegg)
Little nicer quality board then the Asus you picked, Asus boards are really only good when you hit the higher priced ones
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($60.49 @ NCIX US)
Will overclock better then the corsair ram you picked, and in my opinion looks better
Storage: Plextor M5S Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($86.99 @ Microcenter)
The HyperX is ok, but is Sandforce controlled, which is kinda old, I hear good things about this Plextor, which is on-par concerning speeds with the Samsung 840 Pro
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($64.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card ($399.99 @ Newegg)
Faster then the 670, and around the same price as one smile.gif
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 300R Windowed ATX Mid Tower Case ($79.98 @ Newegg)
Don't cheap out on the case with your budget, there is no need wink.gif
Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 550W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($72.00 @ Newegg)
Fully modular PSU, I think yes.
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($14.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $1201.54

There is literally no need for a HDD cooler unless your case is either crammed with stuff, or the case has terrible airflow. Same for the ram cooler, totally useless, this ram I picked has good heatsinks and is very overclockable. If you arent overclocking and just wanted one, save your money wink.gif

Any questions ask!

@ADHD additive, there's just one thing on the list that I'm not sure about. The Radeon 7970. I've read that nvidia gtx 680 is better. I would be willing to change the 670 for a 680 if this is true.

From 1 to 10 what would be the rating for this build?

7970 beats out the 670 and 680 so it's the best buy right now unless you need the CUDA support.

Yes AMD's offerings are better for price to performance ratios. However it should be noted that nVidia's driver support is always top notch, and gameplay is generally smoother (Meaning, even though the AMD equivalent may be getting more FPS the nVidia GPU will still provide smoother gameplay at lower frames. This is based on personal experience, and what a lot of reviewers say)

Does the Radeon 7970 allow good over clocking?
I also noticed that there was a ghz or something like that version. Can someone elaborate?

Is that better than regular card? Can you still raise and adjust the oc settings?
I heard that pre-overclocked gfx cards aren't correctly configured. Example: the voltage is too high when It can really be lower.
I know I'm asking a lot of questions but I want to get the best parts within my budget for gaming/over clocking. redface.gif
