First time builder advice needed

Hello,

I've been reading a lot about building PC. My choice is: Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z87P-D3

CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-4670K 3.4GHz 6MB LGA1150 BX80646I54670K

GPU: Gigabyte GF GTX760 2GB GDDR5 PCIE GV-N760OC-2GD 2.0

RAM: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB DDR3 CL10

PSU: Corsair GS600 2013 Edition ATX2.3 80+ 600W

CASE: Zalman Midi Tower Z5 Plus

HDD: Western Digital CAVIAR GREEN 1TB 64MB WD10EZRX

Is it good choice for later OC? And is there some bottlenecks or overdoing? thanks :)

  1. I would go for a half modular Corsair CX750m PSU:
    Higher wattage for overclocking (power supply's lose power over time)
    Better airflow (less cables)
    Easier for first time build (Modular)
    Around same price
    Tested by me and got a I7 3770K at 5Ghz (not advised and it was custom water cooled)
  2. Also when you want to overclock get a Decent cooling solution. Go for a good quality heat sink or closed loop cooler (Corsair Hydro series)
  3. I would replace the WD Green with a Black drive if you are focused on performance
  4. I never done OC, so I'm leaving it for future :) and it's also extra money so need to save up more :)
  5. Also I forget to mention monitor: LG 23EA63V-P. Is it any good? I'm not gaming so much online shooters.
  6. If you don't plan on playing many FPS games then I don't see anything wrong with that monitor based on the reviews ive read.
  7. Is it necessary to add more fans to the case for better air flow?
  8. That case you are planning on getting has plenty of airflow I wouldn't worry about adding fans until you decide to OC.
  9. Can I save money at something without loosing noticible performance?
  10. 500gb Hard drive you wont lose performance and it would take a while to fill 1t of games
  11. Unless your really set on that case you could definitely find one for cheaper.
  12. I live in Lithuania, so prices aren't so cheap :) what other good case You would recommend? I like this one because of look, and that it has two fans already..
  13. And what about HDD, what advantages to go for WD black instead of green?
  14. Would Seagate BARRACUDA 7200 1TB SATA 64MB ST1000DM003 do the job as WD black?
  15. Best answer
    Yes the Seagate drive is is going to give you must faster load times the green drive was a 5400rpm compared to the barracudas 7200rpm
  16. Is it worth to change 4670k to Intel Xeon Processor E3-1230v2 3.30 GHz, 8M Cache, LGA1155, 69W?
