its my first time building a computer, so please forgive me if this question is newbish :)
This is what i have so far:

OS: Windows 7
CPU: i5 2500k
MoBo: Maximus IV gene-Z
RAM: Ripjaws X F3 (2x4Gb)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2Tb @ 7200rpm 3.5"
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 1Gb
PSU: Antec EarthWatts Green 650W

  1. Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums!

    Good components - I will request the mod to transfer this to the New Builds section. You will get a lot of responses there
  2. This topic has been moved from the section Opinions and Experiences to section Systems by Hunter315
  3. Thank you !
  4. Good start - I would not recommend the GENE-Z or any mATX board on a full desktop system - go with a full ATX board like one of these:

    - Asus P8Z68-V Pro / Gen 3: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131790
    - Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128506

    Get this for your RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148544

    PSU selection is OK - I'd go with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020

    I'd also really look at putting a bit more into your GPU.

    If you want Radeon go with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102953

    Otherwise I'd recommend this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130604

    Knowing your budget would help to solidify it a bit more.
