How is my gaming build ? (first time builder)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I want to buy a new gaming PC to run games like BF4, COD:Ghost, Rome II: Total War, etc. I'm still raising the money but I plan to have a 1500 to 1600$ budget. Ah, and I live in Canada (worth saying because parts are more expensive there). Here's what I came with on Newegg Canada. I want your feedbacks !

Pretty good i would say. Nice rig, have you look on Ncix if they have better price? you can always all buy from Ncix and price match stuff that are cheaper on newegg. Use Shopbot.ca to find the lowest price in Canada

You dont need 650 watt for that system unless you want to either add a second card or overvolt the 770

And if you can wait a little there is something on the way thats even better then G at around the same price point

Nice build, everything looks good except the memory. Drop the overpriced Vengeance memory, and go with some nice 2400MHz G.Skill for much less money:

Besides that solid build.
