Please help with my first build for gaming. THANKS!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Ok, I have waited for SB and now its out, so i went onto newegg and poured over items and deals and this is what I came out with. Please give it over a quick look as I am totally noob when it comes to building I don't even know if the parts are compatible.

I did ssd for boot (Windows 7) if i don't need it please tell me so i can cut costs.

If you see an item I don't need or can replace for cheaper please tell me as I need to cut some costs.

Thank You in advance!!!

Get this memory instead as you aren't doing triple channel.

Are you going to ever be doing SLI or crossfire and OC'ing? If not then you can go with a smaller PSU. Get a good 500w if you aren't going to be doing any of those things.

I would consider this case for a few dollars more just because of the cable management.

try this case: LianLi has a nice deal (its only 4$ more than the HAF912 right now with promo).

Or this case: Cooler Master 690 ii

The Antec 3hundred is over priced for what you get in my opinion. the two cases above have cable management and lots of room to work in, good airflow, and look good with good build quality.

If you wanted a little cheaper cooler you go with

It would be more cost efficient to go with an i5-2500K instead, you could save quite a bit by doing that.

Good catch! I read 2500k for some reason.

Yes that will save you about $100 right there.
