ok so this is my first post on this site and my first attempt to build my own computer. i think these parts will work but i want to make sure.. also if any1 has any ideas as to how i could make it better let me know, please and thank you. also i have a general idea on how to install a water cooling system but can't find anywhere to get the system for a decent price. i'm looking to cool my cpu and gpu but everything i find only is a cpu cooler. am i just dumb or is it really that hard to find a video card block?
Approximate Purchase Date: this week or as soon as I figure out my whole build
Budget Range: $1,200
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing the internet, watching hulu/youtube
Parts Not Required: mouse, monitor (Resolution:1600 x 900), speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com (doesn't really matter)
Country: USA (Hawaii)
Overclocking: yes, but not until I get a water cooling system which will be later
Unless your a hardcore audiophile the odds of you needing a sound card are slim to none. Like the other poster pointed out, ditch that psu and. Also try to get as much as you can from Amazon so you don't get hosed on neweggs shipping cost to Hawaii...and get a Gen 3 board so yu have the option to upgrade to Ivy Bridge and PCI-E 3.0 later on. Seeing how you live in Hawaii where it gets warm, you might want to look at some Corsair and Cooler Master cases that have better airflow.
