First Homebuilt System

Hi all,

I have recently been looking into building my first computer. I am fairly comfortable assembling it when I get the parts, I am just not exactly sure if all my parts are compatible. Could I get some comments/concerns on the following system parts?

Case: LIAN LI PC-A70F
Mobo: ASUS P6T Deluxe V2
Processor: i7 920
PSU: KINGWIN Lazer LZ-1000
GPU: XFX HD-485X-ZDFC Radeon HD 4850
Mem: CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
HD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB
Heatsink: Prolimatech Megahalems

Am I missing anything? Is there anything that looks like it will pose a problem?

Thanks for the help!

Erik

  1. Everything look like it will fit/work together. Whats this PC for ? Your PSU is overkill and If this is a gaming rig (well your GPU is not so grate) .
  2. What is the build for & budget?? If gaming make these changes...

    CPU: Core i5 750
    MOBO: ASUS P7P55D-E Pro
    RAM: G.SKILL RIPJAWS 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600 Cas7 (Blue Version)
    GPU: ATI 5850 or 5770 (if budget doesn't permit)
    HSF: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
    PSU: Corsair 750TX

    Keep the case, hard drive and DVD.
  3. Thanks for all the replies.

    Let me clarify a bit:

    I plan to purchase the parts in the next month or two and I don't want to go over 1500
    I wont be gaming much (if at all), so I am not too worried about a kickin graphics card. I will use it mainly for software development, and I want a machine that will run seamless. I plan on overclocking the i7 to about 3.8ghz.
    I've picked all the parts above from newegg.

    Let me know if this changes anything!

    Thanks again.

  4. If it's for minimal gaming then your GPU is fine. The PSU is still complete overkill.

    Also Kingwin has a bad rep for PSU's, if you're going to spend 100-140 for a PSU get a 650-750 Corsair and call it a day (750 is still overkill)

    A good 550 watt PSU:
    Corsair 550VX (41 amp 12 volt rail)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139004
    is all you need.

    But the 650TX:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005
    is only about $10.00 more.
  6. I agree with jsc
