Second time building this setup good? suggestion?

Hello :hello: this is my second time building a computer myself. I did some research on this forum and selected these parts for my next computer. Please take a look and give suggestions. Also..with this spec, how much I should get from default OC?

My Spec:
CPU: Intel 2500K-

MOBO: ASUS P8p67 Deluxe -

Videocard: ASUS GTX570 -

Cooling&Heatsink: Thermaltake Frio -

PSU: Antec EarthWatts EA750 750W -

Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8gig DDR3 1600 -

Computer Case: Rosewill ARMOR Gaming ATX mid tower

and probably a SSD and a Seagate HD

Any suggestion? or should I replace any parts for better OC and performance?

Thanks in advance!

  1. oh.. I forgot, this system is for gaming purpose.
  2. Can save you some money.... go with the coolermaster 212 heatsink for $30, it performs better than the one you listed for half price.

    Also check out Raidmax Quantum case, it's a great case for $45 shipped (after rebates)

    I use the OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W on a similar system and have been nothing but happy with how well it performs for that price. ($50 after sale, rebate, and coupon)

    Seagate HD's are junk... for a normal HD, Samsung Spinpoint f3 is generally considered best bang for your buck
  3. thanks for the fast response. I will read more reviews on the mobo. I did some reading on the Frio, some say it is pretty good but I agree the price is a bit higher. I probably won't SLI, and the PSU is from my old system and I probably won't buy a new one. I use to have a 1TB samsung HD, but it has bad sectors without 6months, didn't bother to RMA because too much hassle that's why it gave me a bad rep on samsung HD.
  4. was it an f3 because they are very reliable?

    psu no sli- a quality 650w psu should do-
  5. Id recommend the ASUS P8Z68-v Pro over the ASUS P8p67 Deluxe
  6. they both are overpriced
