First time building my gaming pc, help please.

I,m building my first gaming pc, I've done some research to choose the components BUT I'm not very tech savy, therefore i was wondering if someone could check what i chose and let me know if its a good build and if not how could i improve it?

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Processor, Black Edition:


Corsair XMS3 12GB (3x4GB) DDR3 2000 MHz RAM:


Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache HHD:

EVGA GeForce GTX 770 GPU:

Creative Sound Blaster ZxR SBX PCIE Sound Card:

NZXT Phantom 820 Case:

XSPC Raystorm Extreme LiquidCooling Kit:

Thank you for your time, and if there's any piece that doesnt work with the build or if theres something more I need please let me know.

  1. Best answer
    Phenom is a bitt aged, grab the FX8320, 8 cores, overclockable, etc.

    FX6300 would even be on par with the 1090T.

    3x4GB kit is not for this type of motherboard. That was intended for Intel X58 boards which had triple channel memory. You'll want something like a 2x4GB or 2x8GB kit.

    Rest looks good.
  2. Those would certainly work.
