hi everyone, i've finalised what i desire to build my first budget gaming pc build:

Case: Zalman Z11 Plus
CPU: Intel i5-4670k
GPU: EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 760
MoBo: Gigabyte Z87-HD3
PSU: Corsair CX600W
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB
SSD: Samsung 120GB 840 Evo
HD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212

The questions:
will there be any hiccups with this build?
will it run current demanding games?
if so, at what FPS @ 1080p?

All feedback will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks

Yes its fine but get that garbage cx 600 out of there im sick of seeing it get a 500 or 550 watt seasonic or xfx psu it will be only 10 or 20 dollars more expensive and they are well worth it.

almost...

CPU: Intel i5-4670k >>> use new 4690K
MoBo: Gigabyte Z87-HD3 >>> new Z97 mobo
PSU: Corsair CX600W >>> low tier psu, use XFX 550W

I have the zalman z11 plus case and I kind of regret getting it really. The corsair 200R seems a better option in my opinion.


I have the 200r and i absolutely love it for the price plenty of room and fan options and decent build quality.

thanks. I heard about the XFX psu, i might switch that up. Idon't really want to change the CPU and MoBo just yet, maybe next time.

wow, i had a really hard time choosing between the 200r and the z11 plus. is it really better?

I have no experience with the z11 but i can say i am really impressed with the 200r i would confidentially say its one of the best if not the best case in that price range.

thanks for the info Tom

i might end up getting the 200r as you rightly said the simplicity of it made me fall in love with it. I always thought the z11 was a bit overkill

The choose of a case should be yours get the one you like.

As for the CPU/motherboard the one you picked will be just fine do not worry about it at all.

If you want to stick with Corsair for the PSU just do not get the CX branded as they are not up to par.
