Could I please get some recommendations for a gaming pc build? I have already picked out a processor (I5 3570k) and graphics card (EVGA GeForce GTX 680 4GB) and would like to get some direction towards other compatibe parts. My budget is around $1500. Thank you very much!

Most will probably agree 4GB over 2GB GTX680 makes minimal to no difference, which means you are likely wasting some money.

so do you need everything? so a keyboard mouse monitor etc.

ok here look at this

it goes over but if you dont need a monitor, keyboard, or mouse it will help a lot and you can get a none OEM version of windows

also the 680 is 2gb unless you are running a 3 screen gaming then you dont need more than 2gb

would have to say if you go for a gtx680 2gb version rather than the 4gb version

then a gtx670 would be a better bet--near enough as fast and probably roughly $100 cheaper

and 850w corsair seems excessive--could save enough by getting a gtx670 and lower watt psu to include an ssd in there

its true i have my gtx 670 overclocked to a gtx 680 stock performance at 120 dollars cheaper which with this you can get a non oem version of windows

though one thing i do have to say is that 850 may be excessive but if he ever want to overclock/sli his graphics card he will want the extra wiggle room i know i like it
