I need advice...Will this work?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well this is my second build. My first build was a Barebones Kit that I assembled for my younger brother about 3 years ago. I'm concerned that not every part is compatible. Also, I would like any suggestions for low cost alternatives to these parts (Newegg Only). After reading a few forum threads, I'm very interested in overclocking the Core i5 to 3.8GHz+....possibly 4GHz.

Here's what i have so far:

Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 932 ($139.00)

Power Supply: Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W ($79.99)

Combo: $369.98 (-$15.00 Discount)
Motherboard: ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 ($189.99)
CPU: Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 ($194.99)
Video Card: XFX HD-577A-ZNDC Radeon HD 5770 XXX Edition Video Card ($179.99 + $7.56 s/h)

RAM: CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) ($119.99)

OS: Windows 7 64-bit

CPU Cooler: CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series CWCH50-1 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler ($79.99)

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar WD7501AALS 750GB ($69.99 w/promo code)

Keyboard: Microsoft Wired Keyboard 500 ($12.99 + $4.99 s/h)

Mouse: Logitech MX518 ($42.99 + $5.99 s/h)

Subtotal: $1,105.90
Shipping: $12.64
Grand Total: $1,108.54


All feedback is appreciated
I would really like to purchase/build this rig soon...

Excellent choices, all I can suggest is maybe a CM 692 Advanced instead of the HAF (personal opinion though, both are great), and get a Corsair or Seasonic PSU instead of that Antec one.

Thanks for the advice. I'm pretty much dead set on getting the CM HAF 932. As for the PSU, do you think I would be fine with a lower wattage....maybe 500w or 550w?

Still no word on whether or not this build is compatible...

Looks Good from here too,
I would go for a Slightly More Powerful PSU Just for the Future Upgrades in the System,

The build is good, maybe a better GPU would be cool, but if you have a money limit, then it is ok. And the you want a full tower case? If not, then HAF922 looks much better then HAF932, just it is mid case. The HAF922 has some dust filters, if it is important for you.

What GPU would you suggest? I was considering the HAF922, but its currently Out of Stock at Newegg due to the $50 off deal they had last Wednesday. Also, thanks for all the feedback so far

Yes, everything is compatible, "looks good" is the same thing

Look into a 5850 or 5870, definitely get 650W at least, 750 is probably a better idea.

Hope this helps!

Well I took the advice, and chose the CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W. As for the graphics card, I'm pretty confident the XFX Radeon HD 5770 XXX Edition Video Card will suit my needs. The 5800 series cards would bring me way over my budget. Anymore advice is welcome.
