Just wondering if someone would offer some guidance as I am building my first PC.

Here is a list of my parts.

It looks good, I recommand the Zalman CNPS10X Performa over your CM.

Power supply is overkill, 700W will do just fine.

Wow! Thanks for the quick reply.

Thermaltake SMART Series SP-750PCBUS 750W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Is that a decent enough power supply then?

Will I need to purchase any cables? or does it come with everything, Sata. etc..

That 750W looks good. All cables are included.

Here's a PSU guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/183810/faq-recommended-power-supplies

Correct, that PSU is complete overkill. For a 750 or maybe 800w I think you might be able to squeeze in SLI 780 later. Don't quote me. 750w is close to Crossfire 7970.

 

For CPU coolers:

 

Stock -> CM Evo 212 -> Noctua D14 (For silent build) or Silver Arrow (For performance only) -> Kraken x60 -> Custom Loop

Personally see no reason to deviate from that order.

 

If you buy Noctua you get free good thermal paste though.

If you buy a high-end air solution, make sure it will fit with your Vengeance, those have tall heatspreaders. I went with the Sniper series, 1866, it was only $2 more on sale than 1600. Sniper series are lower profile.

Because let's face it though. Evo 212 at its price point is a hard to beat competitor. If you're going higher up on the air scale, might as well get the best air has to offer, don't tiptoe around with a slightly more expensive cooler that has lesser bang for buck than Evo while not even being better at all, really. Noctua for free good thermal paste and quietness. Silver Arrow for noncompromising air cooling. If you're going above that, why settle for anything less than x60, best AIO cooling?

 

Personally for SSD I'd go with a Samsung Evo SSD that is one notch above what you feel you need. Prevents running out of space, improves performance. Prevents psychological damage. Samsung is tied for first place in performance I believe.

 

Those are my opinions.
