Looking for input on my part list for my upcoming build. Any help is appreciated!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I'm putting together a part list for my first build. I'm trying to go as high-end as I can within budget. Right now I'm hovering around $700 without a monitor, which is comfortable for me. I'd maybe go as high as $800 without a monitor for now. I feel fairly sure about my picks on some of the items, but just looking for other opinions, as well as, any insight on how well everything will work together.
I'm not putting in a GPU right now because I won't need one until after I finish grad school in March and have time to actually play games (nothing probably serious, just emulators mostly).

CPU:
Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ~$220

MOBO:
Asus Z87-PRO ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ~$170

RAM:
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ~$77

Storage:
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ~$80

Case:
Rosewill BlackHawk ATX Mid Tower Case ~$90

PSU:
Antec High Current Gamer 620W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ~$50

Optical:
Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ~$17

Monitor:
No idea yet, something 22+ inches, 1080, and not over $150 would be nice.

Here is the build on pcpartpicker:

My use for the computer will be a little bit of everything. It will be my primary PC and I'd like to eventually use it to record music and maybe game a bit (I won't be playing anything too graphically intense though).

Thanks in advance! Please let me know if you have any questions about my choices or if you see anything that isn't up to snuff with the rest. I think I've researched and accounted for everything, but I am somewhat new to this.

oh, and just to answer some basic questions
-Parts will be bought in the US
-I'm definitely going with intel
-Planning on OCing at some point
-Building right around christmas or right after

Unless you plan on getting a high end video card a 450 watts PSU is enough

Welcome to OCN by the way

Are you from Australia?

I probably won't buy anything extreme. Most likely a $150ish single graphics card when I have the extra money. I've read though that it's best to get something with a higher max output since it will be very stable at the output you're using it for compared to something that is just enough to do the job. I did the calcs for the output I would demand and it was fairly low though. I was looking at 500 and 550's, but I leaned towards this one because of it being haswell ready, modular, good reviews, and it's (for whatever reason) cheaper than the 520W model.
Thanks! Actually I'm from the USA
