I'm ordering as soon as two or more people agree that my build is good, and I'm not getting ripped off/choosing the wrong parts. I will be playing games on a res of 1280x1024 like gta iv, cod mw2 without the need for highest settings. So I just basically need someone with experience to let me know the build is good, before I order
. Thank you.

Looks ok to me.

I have the 790xt UD4P and it works well with the 790be, should be similar for your GPT board, plus you have onboard video so you can still use the board without your GPU if you end up putting it in a new system down the road.

I would opt for a different GPU, but at your resolution it should suffice. If you wanted to future proof yourself, a 5770 is only about $30 more, and a 4890 (if you don't need DX11) is crazy cheap at about the same $175 amount.

You're over on the PSU, but no harm done there. If you wanted to save a little more you could get a 500-600w PSU. It has a 6pin connector for the GPU.

My 720be rocks and I'm very happy with it.

If you get an aftermarket cooler you can EASILY overclock it to ~3.2ghz on stock volts.

I don't have experience with that case, but hey the price is right and I don't think you have any extreme air-flow needs.

You may need to overclock the RAM to achieve 1600, but it will downclock to 1333 if you don't want to mess with it, and that's still fast.

I think the graphic card will do for now, I really can't afford to spend anymore money. I would get a better card if I could take some money from the other hardware, but I'm trying to keep all quality brands.

The PSU seems to be the best deal for the price, as far as I can see. Its 700w so I'm sure it can handle future upgrades. Its OCZ and as far as I can tell thats a good thing. It costs $69.99 but then you get $30 back with a rebate. And of course, free shipping is always a plus.

From what I've read, I thought I'd be able to get a decent oc with the 720be with its stock cooler. Do you believe I won't? Its great that you have the same cpu
.

EDIT: Thank you

I was also thinking I may be able to get some cheap used case fans from this computer repair shop close by..

Fans are cheap, no worries there. I use my stock case fans and have no issues.

And you are thinking right about the PSU. If you can get a deal, there is no reason not to get more power than you need, and OCZ comes recommended often.

The GPU will work fine, I understand the price limitations. Your RES is low enough that I believe the card will perform fine.

I've heard a mixed bag on the stock cooler. Some people think it is terrible, but some people will tell you that if you lap it and increase the contact pressure it performs excellently.

I don't think you'll have issues seeing as how I hit 3.2ghz without even raising the voltage. I have the UD4P board, but you should get similar results. If you hit a wall, its nothing a $35 aftermarket HSF won't fix!

Good luck!
