Is this solid

Ok this is my first time customizing a new computer. And I know i'm gonna get a lot of crap for this but I went through cyber power pc. Im trying to build something that costs under $1200. So out of curiosity, is this build solid. And please don't give advice or input if you don't know what your talking about. I do have a little bit of knowledge on hardware but I still have a lot to learn. I just hate seeing people try to give advice when they don't know much about computers. Anyways thanks for your responses in advance.

  1. All in all it looks good.

    I might substitute a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ for the CPU cooler.

    I also avoid Palit. I would choose Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte or MSI but not Palit. They had some "issues" with shipping special cards to review sites and different cards to customers in the past.

    That motherboard does not support but 1 graphics card. If you ever plan to SLI get the UD4 model ( I have the UD4 ) or maybe the ASRock P67 Pro that gets such great reviews.
  2. Thanks man. Iknew that I couldn't throw another video card in if it was Nvidia, but didn't know about palit. I was worried that 650 watt power supply might be pushing it, but it looks like it will be fine.
  3. By the way, will that cooler work better then the stock one for the cpu?
  4. Oh yeah it will be much better than stock and it is cheap and quiet.
  5. Actually I was talking about the CoolerMaster Hyper TX3. Im going to look into the Coolermaster Hyper 212+ though.

    That build doesn't make sense. First off like what was pointed out, the mobo isn't set up for dual graphics cards, yet the 650w psu is over kill for that 460. For $1,200 I could post a build that would not only mop the floor with that build, but it would be set up for future SLI and include Windows 7. Just something to think about. :)
  7. Yeah man, I get the mobo only supporting crossfire x but what sucks is I don't a million options through cyberpower pc. Feel free to show me a build, but im content on the i5 2500k. Thanks for the post man.
  8. Btw this is a gaming system, but I figured you guys already knew that
