This is my first time building a pc and was woundering if these parts would fit together. I would appreciate if you guys would give me some tips! I am building a pc mainly for hardcore gaming and video creating.

Case; Fractal Design Define R3 Black Pearl

Asus P8Z68-M Pro
Asus GeForce GTX 560 Ti TOP 1GB
Corsair HX 650W
Intel Core i5 2500K
Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 16GB CL9 (4x4GB)
OCZ Agility 3 120 GB
LG BH10LS30
Asus Xonar DX/XD
Noctua NH-U12P

Depending on how heavy video editing is, the i7-2600k may work better for you.

If the Corsair Vengeance is the tall spiky version, scrap it and get the normal profile version. The tall one will interfere with the cooler.

The Noctua works, but not any better than the Coolermaster Hyper EVO or 212 Plus.

If you plan on adding a second video card later, I would bump up to 750w on the PSU.

Buy the Corsair Vengeanca low prifile memory.


The Noctua at the top is tested with push/pull. The stock version only nets out 1 degree better than the Coolermaster which is less than half the price. That in mind, I would go with the Coolermaster.

Agree on the Corsair Vengeance low profile memory. That's what I went with and it works and looks great.

You can also setup the Coolermaster as push pull with an extra fan for around $7-10.

So I should get:
"Intel Core i7 2600K"
"Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 8 GB (2x4GB) CL9 Low Profile"
"Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo"
instead?
(just checking)

The i5 2500k will be great for gaming. Extra gains, if any, for the i7 2600k will be in the video creating department, so, as he said, it depends on how much you will be doing it and whether you want the improvement for the increased cost.

That memory and CPU fan are great. I have the same memory, and the 212 Plus. No issues with either.

Yes. It should work well for you.
