Hello i am building my first computer and have looked at some posts and liked this set up the best.

I have a couple newb questions that are, Do all the parts usaly come with all the cables and hook ups needed?
The other is that i would like this computer to last 3-4 years without upgrading anything other then the vid card if it is possible.
I will not be running any 3d, just games on highest settings and im happy.

I would also just like a seconed opinion of the parts if there is anything i should change around.

That is going to be a really amazing system - there's nothing I would really change about it.

There is no need for the 1000W PSU. That is incredibly overkill.

The 560 will not be able to run new games at the highest settings. I have seen good reviews for that gpu, but it still won't be able to handle newer games at highest settings.

EDIT: And yes, most components come with needed: cables, software, etc. Cpu coolers even come with thermal paste already on them (Most of them)

True and now that I think about it I haven't really seen a lot of good reviews for the Silent Pro series - the Corsair AX850 would probably be a better choice or the Seasonic X850 Gold.

And maybe drop the case to the 400R and the motherboard to the UD3P and then you could spend the nearly $90 difference in those places on getting the 570 instead of the 560.

Only liquid coolers and the stock Intel and AMD coolers come with pre-applied thermal paste. Most aftermarket air coolers come with their own - Noctua's is one of the best.

EDIT: I agree with putting more money towards your GPU. You went all out on just about every component except the GPU. Which for a gaming PC, is backward. I agree with G-Unit in dropping down to "lower" other components to allow you to purchase a more powerful GPU.

(sorry I can't really make too informed suggestions about components, I use AMD) :whistle:

Im pretty sure my Coolermaster V8 came with Paste pre-applied.....I may be wrong though, my memory sucks.
