Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

I'm new to these forums, and I am excited to be member of this community. This is my first PC build, and I would really appreciate some constructive feedback. I'm looking to stay around this price range (less would really be ideal).

PC Build:

I ALREADY HAVE AN i7 - 4770K PROCESSOR ($349.99)

+ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard ($144.99)

+Corsair Graphite Series 600T CC600TM Graphite Grey Mid-Tower Gaming Case ($159.99)

+Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ($67.25)

+CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B ($84.99)

+Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible ($39.99)

+ASUS GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card ($259.99)

Don't quote me on this but i feel like 450W is a little low if you are planning on OCing.

Yeah, I know I'm cutting it close. I will probably get a 650 watt power supply. It's worth the extra few bucks.

I went with 750w and now have 2 7850's in crossfire comfortably. With CPU and both GPUs OC'd pretty heavily.

Nice, sounds like you have some sweet gear.

I would add at least a 120GB SSD for windows. You can find some 120's for as low as 79.99 on sale, generally 99.99.

Kingston 120 SSD 79.99

i wouldn't recommend using that psu its not very good i believe the oem is fsp also 450w would barely run your system would recommend 550w or 750w if you plan to sli

you know the black CORSAIR sticks are cheaper then the blue sticks and are the same sticks id go with the blacks they match your board better http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233144
