I have finally saved up enough (around $1000) to hopefully build myself a decent gaming PC. I keep 2nd guessing myself if this part or that part will be the right one for me before I decide to spend this kind of money.
Items already own and trying to build around:
Monitor=Samsung 22" LCD HDTV (current display)
Tower=Tsunami Dream ATX (from previous purchase 2 years ago)
Logitech 4.1 surround sound, wireless mouse and keyboard
Parts I'm looking to put into tower:
OS=Windows 7 Home 64bit
Mobo=ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel
CPU=Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155
CPU Fan/Heatsink=Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
GPU=ASUS GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16
RAM=G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

CD/DVD Drive=ASUS 24X DVD player
PSU=Thermaltake SMART Series SP-750PCBUS 750W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready
Before Shipping I'm at $1013 all from newegg.
Just looking for some outside input. Thank you. Any suggestions would be great
I honestly suggest using a site called http://pcpartpicker.com because it will show you the cheapest price for each part (from different sites), and tells you whats compatible and whats not. I also suggest upgrading to windows 8.1 and if u dont like the new start thing (i dont either) use this http://startisback.com/ it basically gives you the same start button as windows 7. The reason i recommend this is because alot of people are reporting FPS increase using Windows 8.1 so why no you know? if your paying for windows 7 why not just get a newer version that runs better and u can make it look like 7 lol anyway just input your specs on there and it will give u an estimated wattage so make sure ur power supply has enough power lol.
