I am finally wanting to get into pc gaming. This would be my first build but I want something that is has "future proofing" (hence the i5)
here is my build, any recommendations would be appreciated.
CPU - Intel i5 4670k
CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Motherboard - ASRock Z87 Extreme3
RAM - G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB 1866mhz
HDD - WD Blue 1TB
GPU - MSI GTX 760ti
Case - Corsair Graphite 600T
PSU - Corsair Builder 750w
Optical Drive - LiteOn iHas124-04

as far as i know there is no 760 ti yet (only on pre built sites apparently) and so my immediate assumption is that you are not building it yourself. for gaming, you can also go with 1600mhz ram instead of 1866 (stay at 8gb though) to save some money

I'm gonna guess this build is roughly 1000 on the site that you are building? from what i can read, the 760ti is a rebardged 670.

all in all it's a strong build and really nothing wrong with it, but i would recommend cheaper ram as you just don't need blazing fast ram for gaming (not even 1fps gain over 1600)

You will always be able to build it yourself for cheaper than a pre-built site, but of course they have warranty (requires you to send in the whole pc at a huge shipping cost to yourself though and no garuntee of being fixed)

I would suggest starting to youtube how to build a system in your spare time, just look up a bunch of different people building a new computer or build guides and eventually you will be fairly confident that you can build a pc. it's like lego for big kids :D

I would not get that asrock mobo get this gigabyte instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It will be more reliable and last longer than the asrock board and is 10$ expensive.Also you didnt tell your budget if you want your system to be really fast you should buy a ssd(SOlID STATE DRIVE)it is smaller and 5 times faster than a normal hard drive.If your budget allows an ssd you can get a 120GB SSD and put windows in it and put your games on the normal hard drive this is a great value for money ssd and is one of the fastest ssd's http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... costs 80$.I would not get the MSI GTX 760 and get a EVGA GTX 760 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... rest of the build is fine good job selecting parts by the way :) 


And if you want to learn how to build a computer watch this video by carey holzman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuzWUCXp5Ro


The process of building in very detail.Building a pc is very easy like lego maybe adult lego lol


Happy building :) 


BTW 760ti does not exist the gtx 760 does

There is nothing wrong with the asrock board if it has all the ports you want. I have personally had a good experience with both, and in that price range, go with whatever has more preferred connectivity and color scheme.

+1 to the ssd argument though. you won't get any more fps in your games with it, but it virtually eliminates loading times (great for skyrim) and makes computer boot up really fast

there is is again nothing wrong with the msi card (as long as it is the 2 fan twin frozr variant rather than a reference blower style card) reference cards are louder and hotter than non reference cards, but once you get into the non reference cards, the only difference you will actually notice is heat and noise (still all very similar) but to notice any performance difference you will only be able to tell when looking at benchmark numbers, as your eye will likely not see the 1-4% performance difference between certain models. The msi variant is also usually much cheaper than the others and so makes it a great deal if you are on a budget. The evga one is of course good as well (with acx cooler) but doesnt offer noticable performance difference to warrant the often higher price (of course buy the evga one if prices are the same though as this is possible).
the evga one is really only marginally faster, and you will never actually notice the difference yourself between the two unless you are doing heavy overclocking and benchmarking. even then scores will be very similar, and you can get lucky or unlucky with the silicon lottery on both cards, and seeing a msi with identical or higher scores is not unheard of, while the opposite can also be true. performance is slightly linked to silicon lottery, and so honestly if you are set on the msi one, just go for it

760ti does in fact exist, it is being offered by OEM sites and based on specs it looks like a rebranded gtx 670
