Check my Gaming non-OC build(around 1100$) for issues

Hi guys,i want you to check my gaming build,if there are any compatibility issues or other problems...

Note:I am not going to overclock anything.I don't have enough knowledge and i don't want to bother with it,because i think this build is enough strong and i want my system to be reliable and last long...build link-http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1jIun


CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($274.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($134.98 @ Outlet PC)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($70.33 @ Amazon)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card ($274.99 @ NCIX US)
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case ($84.50 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: XFX 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($45.99 @ NCIX US)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24F1ST DVD/CD Writer ($19.98 @ Outlet PC)
Monitor: Asus VS239H-P 23.0" Monitor ($159.99 @ Microcenter)
Total: $1125.74

As for CPU i don't want to go with K version,mainly because i am really not going to overclock anything and i am low on budget as well,so non K 3770 is OK with me.

I don't know anything about MB,but from reviews and suggestions i think this one is a good one.I am not going to "Crossfire" in future,if u can suggest MB at lower price with same features(without crossfire/sli support) i will rethink it...

Will 550w PSU enough for this build?let me know

At the end i wanted to ask you about UPS,i don't know what kind of and which one should i buy for this build,if you can suggest you will be very helpful
Thanks in advance!

  1. Everything is okay.
    but i'll suggest you to think about your HDD WD Blue.
    because Seagate Baracuda is same in price and faster than WD Blue HDD.
  2. If you don't want to x fire, SLI you can go for MSI z77 G43 motherboard. MSI>ASRock. Also you can try MSI z77G45.
    PSU: Change to Seasonic Si II 620w
    UPS: Go for any 1KVA simulated sine wave UPS

    -there is no reason to get a i7 for gaming.
    -there is no need for a z series board for non overclocking builds
    -upgraded the video card
    -added a SSD
    -did not use a plastic case. there isnt a reason to use it anyways for a lower end build
    -better monitor

    Thanks for helping me out,firs of all i would like to say that i don't want my pc just for gaming purposes,sorry my mistake.I want my build for a medium to high video editing,gaming along with other regular stuff.Your build looks great for gaming,but i think it will be weak for other activities...can SSD really boost gaming?i thought it just decreases loading times,if it is so,then i don't need SSD,as for monitor its great but i wanted IPS not TF and 5ms response time will be enough for me i guess.I don't know about MB,it is cheap,is it really good one?i would have definetely bought GTX770 if i had more money.Sorry for misunderstanding,i want mid to high range PC to be good for almost everything not just gaming
  7. its much cheaper because its built using stuff that is that much cheaper meaning you get the bottom of the rack stuff
