Solved

Hello I'm rather new at this Help please.

Hi I'm rather new at 1) this site and 2) building computers, I am trying to get a basic setup of the computer before trying to figure out how to put it together. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Almightydarkson/saved/3fXO

This is my set up so far if you have suggestions then please comment. I'm trying to make a High end Gaming Computer with components that are mostly if not ll interchangeable when updates and things occur (If it'll be fine for years to come that'd be neat too.) I am rather confused when it comes to Specs for computes so even trying to pretend knowing what I was trying to do is most likely not what happened... Please help, i'm 16 and plan on slowly making up the money to buy this machine with various jobs to buy it so please don't go over bored on the price, I've seen some $16k computer screens >.> I don't need/want that Its the size of tv....

Thanks for the help Hope to hear from someone Soon :D

    Well, a few things.

    1. Why do you need 200g of thermal paste?
    2. Why do you need 2 sound cards? Also, you might not even need a sound card at all, as most motherboards do the job well.
    3. Your graphics card is very outdated and might bottleneck the cpu. I recommend the gtx 770 (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvn770oc2gd) or the gtx 760 (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvn760oc2gdrev20)
    4. Perhaps a different cpu? I recommend the FX-8350 if you can drive your price up a bit. (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-fd8350frhkboxhttp://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-fd8350frhkbox)

    Good hunting!

    Thank you I've Changed what you have said to, As I said before I have no clue what I am doing and just figured I needed the Paste and would find a use for it sooner or later. Thanks again this it what it looks like now.

  3. A few more changes, drop the 32 gigs of ram, you really only need 8 for gaming, 16 if you want to be safe. Doing so will open up 140 bucks for a good SSD or larger monitor, or simply save some cash.
    As for the paste I have a few 5g tubes I have used 4 times each and still have some left over :P

    I Host Different games From time to time, I''m not sure but I think its better to have more Ram, Reduces the lag and such.

    Another question, Is this USB 3.0 compatible?
