Case: Cooler Master CM Storm Trooper Computer Case SGC-5000-KKN1 (150$)

Keyboard: Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 (75$)

Mouse: Razer Abyssus High Precision Optical Gaming Mouse (30$)

Monitor: ASUS VH236H 23 Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black (168$)

Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K processor (220$)

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (45$)

Motherboard: ASUS Intel LGA 1155 (190$)

Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 (365$)

Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast Series 850-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply (135$)

OD: Asus 24xDVD±RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive DRW-24B1ST (22)

HD: Western Digital 1.5 TB Caviar Black (160)

And finally....Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212



Now....This entire build I am planning to use for gaming. Many modern games, such as Skyrim or Crysis. Now, I'm not saying I NEED to have them all on max resolution, but for a bit below 1500$ It sure would be nice.
Now, please rate my build and give any suggestions. Most notably, the Graphics card, and the MoBo. Telling me if my Power supply would be good would help as well :p

Are you planning to go SLI? If not 850 watts is overkill. Otherwise build looks good

from my own experience, CoolerMaster Cases do not generally provide the fans listed as Optional in their cases. You may want to consider adding additional fans if you run into temp issues.

Also, i notice you did not include an SSD and/or and HDD, an optical drive, and an OS... Could it be you just missed it? If not, you're definitely going to want to have these.

Also, that seems heavy on the power supply unless you plan to SLI that card in the future. I calculated about 500w on the system including an optical, HDD and SDD so i would go with a similar 600-700w power supply to the one you mentioned.

In my opinion your build looks pretty nice. What I don't see is a HDD so I'm assuming you already have one and plan to use it for this build. A SSD for a boot drive would be a nice add on. If I were you I'd wait till next week (I believe Monday) the Radeon 7870/7850 come out. The 7870 out performs the GTX 570 for the same price. Your PSU is fine there's nothing wrong with "Overkill" you never know if you might need that extra power in the future.

Edit: Is that Asus board a Z68? Just asking it appears to be. And do you plan to overclock? if not you can skip on the K series i5 and go with the non-K.

I was indeed planning on adding more fans :p 
OS, I have. I edited the HDD and optical drive in, my mistake :lol: 

Anything to save money! I'll go down to a 700W I guess.

Thanks!
Yeah, that was my mistake :p 
I'm building this thing in about a month or so, so alright, I'll take a look for it.
I decided to downgrade to a 700W actually.

It is.
Quite honestly, I'm not all that familiar with overclocking, but yes, I was planning on trying it out.

I would definitely consider adding an ssd for your boot drive, as this can speed your system up significantly. Other than that, looks pretty good to me!

700W is fine. Just make sure the PSU is a reliable brand (Corsair is reliable)

If you have anymore questions ask away.

Alright!

This probably isn't the right section to ask this anyway, but do have any good gaming keyboard in mind? Being backlit is a priority.
