  1. Just up that CPU a bit, maybe a Pentium G2120 will do. And, down the amount of RAM to 8 GB.
    And, aren't you forgetting something? What about Mobo? Well, get ASUS/ASRock H77 Mobo.
  2. There is absolutely zero need to pay more for HDD than the CPU. Drop to $70 HDD and up to i5 CPU. You also don't need a cooler unless you're buying i5-2500k/3570k or i7-2600k/3770k.
  3. Prob. overkill for a Facebook machine :-P
  4. That HDD is a discontinued product and out of stock (if you want to purchase from newegg). Your build looks to me like it is a bit imbalanced (no offense). Here is what i suggest:

    - Change your CPU if you want but don't put there pentium FFS (CPU cooler is there for something like *cough* 3570k)
    - Change your GPU if you want Nvidia/lower grade/cheaper/better one
  5. Have the same question. What do you think about these specs:

    Monitor, mouse, keyboard already have :non:
    And what is better Win 7 or 8?
    Can spend additional $150, but cost reduce is appreciated :bounce:

    motherboard P8H77-V
    CPU Core i5 3570K
    memory TED316G1600C11DC
    hard SEAGATE ST2000DM001
    video H787QN2G2M
