Okay so I've ordered PC parts and they're going to assemble and I just need advice on the build, for example if it's good or bad? Also if it's a good price.

Intel Core i5 2500K Quad Core Unlocked Processor LGA 115 3.3GHZ Sandy Bridge 6MB [$229.99]

Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3 ATX LGA1155 Z68 DDR3 2PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 2PCI HDMI SLI SATA3 USB3.0 [$149.99]

XFX Radeon HD 6870 900MHZ 1GB 4.2GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI HDMI 2x Mini DisplayPort PCI-E Video (X2) [$179.99X2=$359.98]

Inwin Dragon Rider Black E-ATX Full Tower Case 5X5.25 6X3.35INT 1X2.5INT No PS [DRAGON-RIDER] [$109.99]

LG GH22NS70 Super Multi 22X SATA DVD Writer Black OEM [$18.99]

Kingston HyperX KHX 1600C9D3K2/8GX 8GB 2X4 GB DDR3-1600 XMP Dual Channel Memory Kit [$35.99]

PC Assembly and Testing With 1 Year Limited System Warranty (PRE-CONFIG WIN. OS If purchased) [$43.00]

Corsair Enthusiast Series TX850M 850W ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 120MM Fan 5 [$124.99]

Kingston SSD Now V200 128GB 2.5IN SATA3 Solid State Disk Flash Drive With Adapter [$143.99]

With all of that plus the $5.50 Environmental Fee plus 12% HST, it comes to a total of $1,369.10.
So I'm wondering if it's a well built PC or if it has any flaws, I'm also wondering if it's priced decently?

I wouldn't want to be buying overpriced parts when I could be buying them for less, thank you for your time.

Yep, it's pretty good. You can of course get it cheaper at newegg especially with the sale going on right now. you can save about $100 or $200 at best with newegg.

When you are going for a i5-2500k i guess you want to overclock. Then you should be looking at an aftermarket CPU cooler.

Good luck

cutebeans: I did some checking and compared my place to Newegg, it turns out the place I'm getting from is quite cheaper, but thanks!

perfectblue: Nope, I don't plan on overclocking but thanks!

The help is very much appreciated guys
