Moderate Haswell Gaming build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm trying for a moderate gaming build using a Haswell processor.

here is what I have so far:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1cO75

The price right now is about $740, the lower I go the sooner I can build.

This is for my girlfriend, that is the case she picked based on looks, if there is something better price or performance wise that look similar then I well see how she feels about it.

The graphic card that will be used is a MSI Twin Frozor 7850, she already has it.

Actually looks pretty good. Might want to change the SSD to a Sandisk Extreme because they are about as fast as the 840 Pro's but cost the same price as what you are paying fort he regular 840. There are also a ton of cases that look 10x better than that one in that price range. If you need me to list them I will. Lastly, that's not really a good PSU, and if she's never going Crossfire you don't need 650-W. Just get a Rosewill Capstone 450 or 450-M if you need it to be modular.

Thanks for the reply.

The reason she picked that case was the look of it... not my style but to each their own.

Power supple was mainly what I was debating, that helps thanks! Now to pick a monitor too.
