Need help with parts please!

I have picked out these parts as I am planing to build a computer (Duh). I would like it if someone would check and see if their compatible. Here's the links.

Optical Drive: http://goo.gl/4E9xs
RAM: http://goo.gl/zpUuE

Motherboard: http://goo.gl/7lXYS

  1. If you are looking to game, this is all wrong.

    May I ask why? That is what I was planing.

    You don't need an i7. It is identical to an i5 in gaming.

    8gb RAM is all that is needed for gaming.

    That GPU is WEAK. Look at the hd7870 for high settings in modern games.

    That PSU is overkill. 550w would be more than enough.

    You want an h77 motherboard.

    that is a laptop HDD

    With you all the way until that. Wouldn't a Z77 be more optimal for a 3570k?

    Edit: Or are we assuming that he'd go with a i5 3350p?
  6. Not a problem. Always good to learn!

    He didn't have a k series CPU so I figured he wasn't planning to overclock. In this case an h77 board is great. If he gets a k series CPU and wants to overclock it, a z77 board is needed.

    Ah. Gotcha. My apologies. I read "i5" and immediately assumed 3570k.
  9. Um, sorry to ask but could you (TinyVoices) pick out some parts for me. :pt1cable:
  10. What is your budget?

    I'm planing to build part by part, so not like buying the whole thing at one time. Around $635.
  12. It makes more sense to wait until you have all the money at one time. New deals will show up and parts will get older if you do it over time. Its not really a good idea. Is $635 the total amount you want to spend.

    I guess, but I could always get more.

    Oh yeah, you seem pretty smart man. Just asking but do you Xbox LIVE gamertag?
  15. I don't have xbox live gold. My xbox isn't even hooked up anymore.
