so I've recently decided to build my own gaming pc, and I wanted your opinions on my hardware choices.
CoolerMaster HAF 932 Case
SAMSUNG 750GB 7200 RPM HDD
PNY GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi)
CoolerMaster Silent Pro 1000W PSU
Patriot G Series 'Sector 5' Edition 8GB Ram (2x4GB)
MSI P55 GD65 Motherboard
Intel core i5-680 3.6 Ghz CPU
CoolerMaster Gemini II S CPU Cooler
And a BD drive, and a CD/DVD burner/reader
Nothing wrong at all with your choices but there are some alternatives you could use:
Your CM 1000W PSU is sized for 3x GTX 470s but your MSI GD65 only has 2x PCI-e x16 slots. 750W for two or 550W for one GTX 470 would be plenty. I don't know if anyone is going to be impressed hearing you're using any PNY video card. Maybe choose EVGA instead.
