Hey guys, first time builder. i know a somewhat decent amount about computers but ive never built one before. little nervous. maybe someone can look at what ive picked out and give me some tips on the build as well as a good hardrive and proper cooling. this rig is for heavy gaming. max settings and all that xD

all very good, the 4770k is not needed for gaming as the 4670k will do everything you ask of it.

Hi, Nice build proposal but the cooler master HAF 932 is just so 2010 that you need to step you pimp game up to the present. I'm just going to throw this out there.... http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CC-9011048-WW-Windowed-Pe...


Thats a really nice case and I'm actually contemplating buying it however i don't see a spot for an optical drive on it. Am i blind?
