Is this a good Build? Mostly for gaming!

Hello, after serveral modifications to my build, I have completed it, and now I would like to think what you guys think about it. Here is listed everything, from the mousepad to the hardware. No mice since I have one already.

    For me to go through that would involve opening over a dozen windows. Use pcpartpicker.com to select your items then hit the BBcode markup button near the top right and you can copy/paste the text to here. As a bonus, pcpartpicker will perform a preliminary compatibility check and let you know how much power your rig will take.
  2. Alright let me do that, didn't knew we could do that!
  3. Just realized my CPU cooler won't work, I'l update this thread after I find another one!
  4. Also, don't waste cash on a mouse pad. Go to any Best Buy or something nearby and grab a cheapo. Heck, go without one because they don't matter.

    Meh, a good quality mouse pad will always complete a build! :D
  6. Build looks okay. CPU cooler? If you want to overclock, you need a cooler. A Master Cooler 212 is the best value, something like a Noctua NH-C14 is the best air cooler.

    You are missing a SSD. This will give you much snappier booting and program loading. Samsung is the best nowdays. 840 Pro 128G is a nice one.
  7. I don't want a SSD, I can live without it :) I will purchase a CPU cooler in the future, my freinds has a i5 2500k non overclocked and can play modern games pretty well.
  8. Maybe I'l get the third party heatsink now, but I'm scared that It can lower the case airflow and maybe hit other hardware like my RAM, or it just fits perfectly?

    Good question. That's why I like the low profile ram sticks. With two of those, most anything will fit over them.
  10. :\ Well if my pc is built without the ram, I will know and just remove the heatsink. It's NCIX.ca who will assemble it.
  11. Looks good, for a CPU cooler I'd go the Hyper 212 EVO, about $35 and the Fan is adjustable so the DRAM heatsinks are no problem
  12. Yeah saw some reviews on that cooler, performs amazingly and is only 35$.
  13. Love 'em, have prob used over 100 of them
