-CX600
-4GB (1x4GB) G.Skill Ripjaws X Series @1866mhz ( I will upgrade to 8 later on)

    Any of those cost 60 bucks? haha
  3. anyone else? :(
  4. You really should start with a set of 2 memory sticks, so that the memory can run in dual channel mode. Until you do that the processor will be starved for information.

    So you recommend 2x2gb?
  6. No, 2 x4GB :) It is about $35 more than a single 4GB stick.

    I will just pop in an 8gb stick later on and have 10 lol.
  8. What if I just get an h60, 8gigs of ram and a 760 instead?
  9. The only h60 that I know of is the Corsair water cooling system (so I don't know what you are substituting it for here).

    As far as the video card goes, I really like the 770. If budget is a big concern, you can downgrade - but I would tend to go for the 750 Ti instead. Admittedly, you have to replace it if you want to upgrade your GPU - it doesn't support SLI.

    I would be replacing the 770 for a GTX 760, Corsair H60 and 8 gigs of ram instead of 4.

    Power Supply: XFX 650W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ NCIX US)

    Are if you're getting an i5-4590 there is no need for an H60. Also instead of dropping the GPU to a 760, why not drop the CPU to a 4670.

    What is your budget for CPU, GPU, PSU, RAM and mobo?
