First Home Built system - help please! Tags: Homebuilt Systems Last response: July 3, 2011 6:37 PM in Systems Share sheffroid July 3, 2011 3:13:15 PM So I'm looking at putting this together: 2500K +Z68 $320 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... 6GB RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... GTX 560 Ti $230 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Samsung F3 1TB $60 http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Spinpoint-3-5-Inch-Intern... Antec 620W $60 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... V3 case $39.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Do I need anything else? Any major issues you guys see? Do I need additional cooling (if so what?) I already have a DVD drive. Any compatibility issues you see? I'm looking to do some gaming (nothing like Crysis), but I do want it at 1920x1080. No editing, but other semi-graphically intensive. Would like to keep it around 700-900. I'm not set on this build by any means, so if you have a better one, feel free to throw it out there! Thanks!

Although if you are going to OC, you might want to get a retail Heatsink and Fan. | Report abuse Timop Homebuilt system Expert July 3, 2011 3:36:07 PM Get 4 or 8GB for RAM, 6GB isn't "dual-channel friendly". | Report abuse r0aringdrag0n Homebuilt system Authority July 3, 2011 3:48:02 PM Timop is right, I recommend 4GB because most programs won't use more than that, and in the future you can upgrade to more | Report abuse sheffroid July 3, 2011 6:29:47 PM OC is overclock right? I don't really know how to do that, so I probably wouldn't have to worry about that... Any suggestions on the 4gb set? And if I do go with the heatsink and fan, which should I? | Report abuse Timop Homebuilt system Expert July 3, 2011 6:37:13 PM Heres a cheap decent set or RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If you don't plan to OC now then you don't need a cooler. You can always add one later. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>First Home Built system - help please!> Related ressources: ForumFirst Home Built Computer, Freezing randomly!
