I have a few questions on a new build ($1000) Tags: Systems New Build Last response: August 18, 2014 9:36 PM in Systems Share EdsEdMen August 18, 2014 9:26:11 PM This is what i'm planing on building. Is anything to much? Should i swap something out? I was trying to stay Under $1000 but am willing to go a bit over if necessary. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/JkpWJx CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor $234.99 Amazon CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO $31.99 Amazon Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme3 ATX LGA1150 $110.91 Newegg Memory: AMD 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $89.99 Newegg SSD: Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $57.99 Newegg HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $58.00 Amazon GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 2GB WINDFORCE Video Card $229.00 Amazon Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case $89.99 Amazon PS: EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified $99.99 Amazon OD: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer $21.12 Amazon OS: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit) $102.98 Newegg It all totals to about $1150. I made a few changes from what i originally had (i'm still new at this). I mainly need for gaming and some computer classes. I know i have a high PS, but I was thinking about buying another GPU later, but was wondering if there was a better card? or if i should even do that at all?
