ASUS M5A99X EVO R 2.0 MOTHERBOARD
COOLER MASTER 212 EVO CPU COOLING
NVIDIA 760GTX
CORSAIR 2 X 8GB DDR3 1600MHZ
128GB SOLID STATE DRIVE TO INSTALL WINDOWS AND A FEW PROGRAMS
1TB SEAGATE HARDRIVE 7200RPM
CORSAIR 800W POWER SUPPLY

I only play a few games and i am not really looking to overclock my cpu though the motherboard and processor are O.C ready. It will be great if you guys could solve my queries, if these specs are fine and it will last me about three years or more and also how reliable are these parts. Also if the power supply is good enough for these specs and what budget case can I use to fit these specs perfectly.

the corsair 800w is alot of power, you could def save by going with a rosewill capstone 550 watt and upgrade to the same HD7950 i mentioned earlier and have better gpu performance. otherwise decent setup. (if you plan to upgrade to SLI the 750w capstone would still probably be cheaper + likely better then a corsair).

I do have that same cooler and same cpu in my current build. I was not happy with the cooler. Its ok for cheap and runs stock settings. but if you plan to overclock at all you would be much happier upgrading (getting that 7950 instead of the gtx 760 will save you enough to afford one) and you can get something like the phanteks ph-tc14pe and the noctua nh-d14 and youd be much happier. I wish i would have


Also mraymond did you check out the evo version of the SSD? for yet another 10 dollars putting you at your limit it will get better transfer rates tongue.gif

My thread got hijacked!

I did look at the evo SSD but I didnt think the upgrade was worth the money. Is it worth the $10?
My friends have been saying a 550W power supply isnt enough.

I just double checked everything about both SSD's and the one you suggested is way better but BOTH are out of stock on Newegg...
Hello TigerDirect
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5247113&CatId=5300

I also forgot to add this keyboard to my thread mainly because I am 100% on the purchase
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7731645&CatId=142

I have to get the keyboard from Tigerdirect because its sold out on Newegg.

550 watts is plenty for one gpu. only time you would need 750 is with sli. 750 could do tri-sli. You could easily go with the 450watt and it would still work fine. the 550 is just to have some headroom for possible peripherals (fan controllers, extra cd drives, hard drives, future water cooling etc). If you think you will go sli then a 750 would be better but if not then you will be fine with 550 its more then enough.

I think ill stay with what i've got.

I may upgrade to sli in the future which at that time I guess ill get a bigger power supply.

Edit #2

My NewEgg cart wasn't right. I had the wrong video card so I switched it. Now my total is $1,311.06 making the build total $1421.05

Way under budget!

your build looks great. but i saw tiger direct and i just ordered most of my stuff from them tuesday. i paid over night shipping. that was tuesday. and today im getting my stuff. i will never order from them again minus the 94 dollar gift card with free over night shipping. other than that noway. i got one of my packages my ram. it was fine but they packed it with two pieces of wadded papaer and the memory was sitting on the bottom of the box. i think that is a horrible way to ship memory, that should be packed in peanuts floating in the middle of the box. ups isn't exactly nice with stuff. So when i get my components today i will start my build, and i hope to god everything works so i dont have to deal with them again. just sayin. who does a price match with a giftcard you can only use in their store anyway? lame..

Thanks ill consider the 7950 over the 760 GTX but how is the performance of the AMD FX 8350 otherwise ? is it good ?
I still want the 800 watt power supply cause I saw the minimum requirements for the 760gtx and it said 600 watts so just to be on the safer side. It fits well in my budget too smile.gif
