Hi guys,

I'm planning on building my first ever computer. I'm mainly gonna be using it for games and I picked most of my parts so far. I read the guides provided here and did a lot of research on those parts.

I picked a PSU recommended for high end builds but I didn't really do any research on it.

here are my current parts (permalink here)

CPU Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core £154.80
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD4H ATX LGA1155 £133.99
Memory Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 £132.98
Storage Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD £124.99
Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 770 4GB classified £338.48
Power Supply Corsair 650W ATX12V / EPS12V £76.38
Optical Drive Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer £13.18

current total : £1035.80


Approximate Purchase Date: This week hopefully

Budget Range: no more than £1200. prefer to aim for £1000-1100 but if its worth it I might spend a little more

System Usage from Most to Least Important:
Gaming
Light CAD
surfing

Are you buying a monitor: Yes (hints? never done it)

Do you need to buy OS:
No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
no preferred site, cheapest reliable is good

Location:
Nottingham, UK

Overclocking: maybe in future

SLI or Crossfire: Probably boost with another gtx 770 4gb in future

Your Monitor Resolution: dont have one but plan to occasionally connect to 42" 1920 x 1080

I need recommendation for following:
PSU
Case
fans/cpu fans
anything else i need to build it

Your help is MUCH appreciated!!

Thanks for the quick reply!

I've looked at the parts you switched in I really like them! I didn't know the socket 1155 was dead and I like the new processor & mobo (8 sata6 no sata 3 + more memory speeds support)

Tower looks cool too :) 

I guess i'll just look at the small peripherals and order the lot by today.

Thanks again :D
