I'm planning to build a new gaming PC and want to get some opinions on it. I already have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to use for now. I will be using this PC mostly for gaming. At the moment, I would prefer to buy my parts from Newegg. I do not plan to overclock anything. I'd like to keep the cost at $1200 or under. This build, without the monitor at the bottom, is $1077.91. Does anything look wrong with this build? Anything out of place?
Why pay for a "K" if you're not going to overclock?
60GB for a SSD boot drive is pretty small...I would get 128gigs. I know its more money, but Windows alone is gonna eat up a ton of that space, and I like some of my other core apps installed on the boot drive, and then everything else on storage.
Also, 600W PSU seems a lot; I'm sorry I'm too lazy to run the numbers, but do you need 600 watts?
If you're not going to overclock is the Z97 motherboard also not necessary,you could do with a nice H87/97 motherboard in that case or you must be looking at crossfire/sli possibilities for in the future.The psu wouldn't support that .
All newegg prices.
Got a gtx 770 in and the newer i5 4690.
With the money left could you even add a nice cooler for a cooler cpu and better looks or get this nice ips monitor if you give more about nice colors than the fastest screen. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/dell-monitor-p2314h
