The Mobo comes with Sata cords, so save the $6.

But otherwise the parts will work together fine, though it is an very odd build with 2 different SSDs and not very balanced.

my uncle is paying for it and having it sent to me so i can build it and give it to my grandfather (who will use it to check his email and use Microsoft word) im sorta jealous
i really want a nice system too x.x of course i will be the one who has to scrape by with the $400 budget build x.x.

A 2500K for email and Word? Save him some cash with an i3 2100 build. Still very fast but much cheaper.


You can also go with the cheaper P67A UD3 because the only difference is the UD4 supports SLI/Crossfire and I doubt grandpaw is going to do that right?


If you are ordering from newegg get him an Antec 300 Illusion case. On sale for $55 and the best budget case in my opinion.

i really dont know why my uncle wants it to be so nice, it kinda bothers me, he demanded the processor be the latest and i also feel its unnecessary its not like my grandfather is going to be playing crysis 2 on the highest settings >.>

That $190 mobo is meant for dual vid cards...yet the psu is good for one card.

This build doesn't make any sense...whether it be for checking emails or for gaming. A simple H67, and i3 with four gigs of 1333 is like way more than fine for checking emails.

i know its overkill, my uncle wants my grandfather to have a top of the line system with the OS on the ssd and the whole bit.
i think he would be fine with a AMD triple core and integrated graphics but my uncle works for NASA so i guess he has the money to spare, i wish he would help me with my own build.

Trust me...after looking at the components your uncle chose...you don't want him helping you with a build unless it's strictly financially. There's some good hardware he chose, but some of it goes together like water and oil.

well i mostly chose the hardware x.x but im pretty sure it will do fine even if it will never have the stress on it that its built for (unless my 80 year old grandfather becomes a hardcore gamer) so what exactly goes like water and oil? or is it just personal preference?

Well it's out of balance. Again, that mobo is meant for a dual vid card set up, yet that psu sucks, and is meant for a single vid card set up. It has Corsairs name on it, yet it's manufactured by CWT, and not SeaSonic like Corsairs better line up of psu's. Although those heat sinks on that Corsair RAM will work for a hair comb, they impede any kind of decent size cpu heat sink. That WD Caviar Green is like super slow,...the Samsung F3 1T is cheaper and runs circles around it...it's quicker, quieter, and cheaper. Two different size SSD's ? Rule of thumb...one decent size SSD and one decent h/d for speed and stability. 5770 isn't what I would recommend for checking emails or gaming. The case is a oven...no decent size and cooling/air flow... Seeing how nobody has an idea of your budget and screen resolution (monitor) it's a tough call to say what set up to recommend.

But ya that build is a mess.

theirs only supposed to be one ssd the ADATA my mistake and the reviews on the psu seemed fine, the HD is now a 500gb seagate my uncle placed the order so thats that. and i dont think the mobo is a problem it just means more pcie slots for future expansion. it should be a fine system

Well I would like to say that you taking the time to register on here and start this thread wasn't a total waste of time but then again I would be totally lying through my teeth if I posted that.

Well usually people start a thread on this forum before they order the components.

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advic... <---- A "copy & paste" of that on this thread and then fill it out, and then people here give the best possible advice they can to the OP (thread starter).
