Please critique my mITX gaming rig

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I was wondering how you thought about my future build (and suggest some parts as well):

Motherboard: Asus ROG Impact (Considering that it is released.) $400
CPU: Intel i5 4670K $250
RAM: Samsung Green 1600MHz 2x 4GB $45x2= $90 [They don't come in 2x 8GB kits, do they?]
GPU: Asus GTX760 Direct CUII OC $300
Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 $90
PSU: ZALMAN ZM500-LE 500W $35
Enermax tomahawk III Ver3.0 $45
SSD: Intel 520 120GB (Currently using)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB (Currently using)
Case: Fractal Desgin Node 304 White $100? (Not released in Korea yet.)

The prices are Korean Won converted to USD. smile.gif
These are the cheapest prices I can find. You can see how inflated they are... quite ridiculous.

Thanks guys! thumb.gif

Everything looks ok except for the PSU. Get a quality unit from Corsair, Enermax, or Silverstone. Don't skimp on that.

I agree with the above. Change the psu for a better quality one

The asus gtx 760 is over priced. Get the evga gtx 760 acx or the msi twin frozr gtx 760.

Thanks guys, I've changed the PSU to a Enermax Tomahawk III V3.0 500W.
Anyone have any experiences with it? Retails for $45.
The Corsair ones run $70+, and I couldn't find any Silverstone ones.


I don't think the EVGA GTX760 is available here, and the MSI runs at $300 as well.
I was really surprised that the ASUS was one of the lowest priced units here!
