Advice on a new Build

I was planning on building a new pc, it is my first time just looking for a little advice.

My current build right now is looking like this:

Case: Corsair 600T White Graphite ATX Mid Tower
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB
MoBo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 or Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX LGA1155
Memory: G. Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2x4GB)
Storage: Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB with 1TB External Hard Drive
PSU: Rosewill Capstone 750W 80 Plus Gold
Optical Drive: Asus BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS
Cooler: Corsair H100i

New Fans for front, back, and for the cooler
2 x Corsair Air Series AF120 Quiet Edition 120mm (Cooler)
Aerocool Shark 120mm (Back)
Apevia CF20SL-UBL 200mm (Front)

Here is a link to the build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1p2UV

I was just wondering if this was a good build, I was thinking about replacing the corsair AF120 Fans with 2 more AeroCool Shark Fans, but was worried about noise.

I was also wondering about the motherboard if there was any preference or one that was better than the other.

And one last question about the GPU, from what I can find seems like a good choice just wanted to know what you guys thought about the build.

  1. it looks like you have a pretty good build, but also a pretty big budget. I would suggest going for the 4th generation i5 as opposed to the 3rd, in which case you would aslo have to upgrade the motherboard. It would only be a $50 increase or so, but it would be worth it. The memory, you could get much better on newegg for the same price. YOu could get 2400 mhz g skill sniper series for $60 (on sale) Hope this helps!

    Is there a build that would save me some money, but not drop too much performance. I don't need the best by any means I don't play games all the time I just want a good build that will last me a few years at decently high performance.
  3. Think I'd trade down to a 400r case, vanilla 840, and a bronze psu to trade up to a 770. No need to go above 1600mhz ram since there's zero gaming benefit.

    Thanks for the help, what do you think about the two motherboards is one better than the other, is there one brand that is a little more reliable than the other.
  6. I love my extreme4 but both are fine.

    both brands are the same reliability, but asrock is a little better, but not noticeable. In this case, you can go by the features as compared to the reliability, because the reliability for them are the same. It also comes down to opinion. If you like one more than the other, then thats your decision. Have fun with your new build! :)
