help me build my matx gaming desktop :)

hi :) anyone can help me pick or suggest certain things?

CPU: i5 4570

MBO:

HDD: WD Caviar Blue 1TB

RAM:

PSU: easonic X650 X-series 650w 80PLUS Gold (Modular)

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7970

ATX: Corsair Obsidian 350D Window Edition

MON: LG IPS237L

ODD: LiteOn IHAS124 24x Multi Format DVDWriter


- now can anyone help me pick a compatible matx non-OC mobo? and a RAM that would look cool and great with the corresponding mobo :)

-mobo should have 4 ram slots + good audio output :D

- LG IPS237L or IPS234V?

    i realize that. the site is down for maintenance
  4. a h87 or b85 mobo ? which is better? and a corsair veng or ripjaws ? which is better?
  5. no difference
  6. here!


    how about this one?
  7. You're not interested in overclocking, I think? And things will look awful through the side window if you don't have a big aftermarket CPU cooler.
  8. @madness well i can still put a cpu cooler if i want too right? :D
  9. Do you need to put in another vga in the future? That PSU is quite overkill if you ask me. Same for the ram kit since you don't OC.
  10. new!

    here i change some things :)

    they say that haswells need more powerful PSU so that's the one i picked.

    and do i really need to OC if im only gonna play games download and watch movies?
  11. Better change to this to have it both performs well and looks nice:
