First Custom PC Build, Need opinions and advice!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone! First off I'm fairly new to this site and I am glad I came across this website. (The Online Deals section is great for snagging PC parts for a steal biggrin.gif) Which comes to my question about my very FIRST Intel PC build. I am purchasing parts one by one, since I am trying to save as much money as possible. I need help finding out what PC components are great for the PC I am going for:

I have already purchased: Fractal Design Define R4 White ATX Mid Tower w/ Window / Intel Core i5-4670K Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.4 GHZ

As for the rest of the parts I am considering the Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 LGA 1150 (157.99 @ Amazon) for MB and for GPU an EVGA GeForce GTX770 SuperClocked

I love the MB, I think it's great, but since I am not tech savvy I'll need to find a way to enable a Wi-Fi connection (without a external USB internet antenna please)

Thanks for taking the time to read! Cheers everyone, this site is great biggrin.gif

Hello and Welcome to OCN! :thumb

:I suppose you'd want either one of those PCI Wifi cards that you insert into the bottom left slots of the motherboard, or a motherboard that has onboard wifi. I'd recommend a power supply ranging around 500W to 650W. 750W for SLI setups.

Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 550W $100 USD @ Amazon

Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 $80 USD @ Amazon

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue $60 USD @ Amazon

SSD: (I would say buy it, if you really want the fast boot times and loading time.) Samsung 840 Pro SSD 240 GB $203 USD @ Amazon

Thanks for the info! As for the internal Wifi cards, a normal PCI slot will do just fine?

Yeah mini PCI or normal size PCI WiFi card will work. Checked your motherboard and it supports both.
