First Build Gaming PC Help

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
HI guys,
Ok so this is the first time ever I'm building a PC... only because my laptop cant handle any games:p
And I'm from India.. and the prices for components here are skyhigh mad.gif
So basically this is the config I've built up till now... and I'll convert their prices to dollars just to help you understand my plight kookoo.gif

Case: NZXT Phantom Original Full Tower w\ USB 3.0 (and the window side panel) biggrin.gif 190$
Mobo: Asus Maximus V Formula 420$
Intel i5 3570K 270$
RAM: G-Skill RipjawsX 8GB 2133Mhz 95$
Samsung 840 Pro 128GB 115$
WD Caviar Black 2TB (I need help on this!) 180$
Corsair HX750 165$
Asus DRW-24D3ST DVD Burner 20$
Sapphire HD7950 Vapor-X 3GB DDR5 GPU 415$

Liquid Cooling:

Block: XS-PC Raystorm
Reservoir/Pump : XSPC res-pump 750 combo
Rad: XSPC RS240
Total :170$

Plus I'm getting a few NZXT fans as I heard only those fit thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Btw I'm coming to USA next month so I don't mind getting these products from there as long as they have international warranty tongue.gif

Plz guys any suggestions are invited as I'm still a noob.. what with still being 16 and funded rolleyes.gif
Thanks for all your help biggrin.gif

things i would do :

get a cheaper case
get 1600 ram or 1866 (if they are cheaper than 2133 kits)
get a good 500w instead of a 750 (again , if its cheaper)

get a video card

maybe a 7850 - 7950/660ti ?

wifi.............

probably ditch the gene Z and go for the asus ITX board (forgot the name)

goodluck with the build and welcome to the forum biggrin.gif

I tried but I just can't get myself over the Phantom's sexy looks tongue.gif

Funnily enough I'm getting the 2133Mhz cheaper than the rest... so..

Sorry I'd forgotten to include my GPU.. my bad doh.gif
So a 500W Gold certified PSU will be good enough?

Hah.. I'd do anything to get a cheaper rig as long as performance isn't affected rolleyes.gif

Thanks for your help man biggrin.gif

If you have a mid sized atx case, why would you get a mini itx motherboard?
I sort of don't get it

good pci0e wifi card

Hmm.. thats's a PCI card.. i was more inclined towards a mini PCIe card for which Asus have included a slot..

Although I was more inclined towards the Maximus V Formula.. budget allows only the Gene whistle.gif
But if I can, I will get the MVF biggrin.gif
Thanks for your help anyway smile.gif

Unless my eyes deceive me that looks awfully similar to what a pci-e card should look like wink.gif

Oh well theres the Killer 1202 for 2x2 mimo and bluetooth 4, or if you're budget minded theres the intel 6235 for viable candidates.
itll look really weird though, you'll have two wires extending out from your case in either case

I dont really see the point in MPCI-E where you could just get a low profile x1 card for cheaper and then(if you REALLY cared about it) got a mini bluetooth dongle and plugged it into usb. All things notebook are notoriously plagued with fakes and knockoffs too.
