Thread Starter 
1: Would this be a good build for gaming? Mostly on Starcraft 2?
I dont need to run on the highest settings, low and medium are fine with me.
2: Also is the build okay, as so it will not overheat or heat up to much?
3: I will be using a 22" Vizio TV as my monitor is that okay?

Intel Core i5 760 2.8GHz (Quad Core) 8000K
Coolermaster Hyper101, Vertical, 2 Copper Heat Pipes, Extra Quiet CPU fan
EVGA 120-LF-E650-TR DDR3, nVidia SLI, GB LAN
4GB (2x2GB) PC10600 DDR3 1333 Dual Channel
ATI Radeon HD 5570 1GB PCI Express 16x dual head, HDMI
500.0GB Hitachi 7200RPM SATA2, UDMA 300 8m cache

Is there a budget in mind? I can help configure something.

Answers to questions: The build seems nice temps wise, but as for the power supply, I'd veer clear of that. Look into Antec, Corsair, SeaSonic, or XFX for some nice units.

Running your PC on a TV will be fine as long as you can connect it via HDMI or something.

The graphics card is too weak, go with an AMD Phenom II x4 955 build instead then upgrade the graphics card to something better like a Radeon HD5770.

Im not sure on my budget quite yet, no more than 1k though, I just need the bare necessities to run the computer, can you elaborate on what you mean with the power supply?

BTW "Phoenixlight" said the graphics card is too weak, what should I get than? Besides going over a 1k build
post #5 of 7
for an example, this Phenom Build this would be more than enough for your needs and much less than 1k so you can still get all the aftermarket cooling you would need as well.

My only question is, is every part, compatible with win 7 Ultimate x64?
Also Im going to have to buy a SATA cable with this or am I wrong?

Also since this will be the first time I'm putting a computer together with all the parts, I was reading up on it and... is this true? What are your takes on using a "Antistatic Wrist Strap" is it really necessary?
-Thanks

Yes it will all be compatible with Windows 7 (64-bit). I recommend using an anti-static wristband, most people don't bother because they're lazy but they're cheap and prevent damage to the internal components so it's a good idea.
