Parts help for first ever PC build : psu , motherboard , ram , and case.

Hi guys, and gals.

I was going to order a prebuilt PC, but I have decided to build it myself so that I have a better understanding of how my PC will work.

I know I want an i5 3570k and a GTX 770.

Can someone help me with a good PSU, Mobo, Ram, and Case that will fit 770 (hear it's long)

My budget is 1200.00

Ironside managed to get an i5 and a 770 @1201$
But again I'd rather build it myself.

All help greatly appreciated.

  3. thanks so much guys, should I buy any tools for putting in together, or screws, cables, thermal paste etc?
  4. thermal paste if your CPU does not come with it, aside from that if you own a small Allen key and a Phillips screwdriver you'll be fine
