Opinions on new build

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=26938768

I already have a video card and cd drive that I'm going to use so that isn't included on the list.

I plan to use for casual gaming.

  1. What GPU are you using?

    That build looks good but I'd heavily advise against using a Sandforce drive - they're prone to issues and errors. This would be a better choice:

  2. Looks good besides the PSU... that thing is tiny.. What kind of graphics cards are you using?
  3. An old Radeon 2600 until I can afford something better later on. I was trying to cut costs there until I could go all out on a new GPU later.

    Think I need a larger PSU? 5-600 watt?

    Definitely if you plan to use a 7850/7870 or a 7950 or 680 - something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096
  5. Thanks! Will be going with the larger psu and will look take another look at SSDs.
  6. I just have to say that you could buy everything on that list, and still have a bad computer not able to run games. Your GPU is going to bottleneck EVERYTHING! If you're getting a Z77, try the ASRock Extreme4, and make sure you wait until the IB i5-3750k is available, or else you're just wasting your money on a Z77. Do you have a HDD? You're going to run into space problems pretty quickly. Also, yes, upgrade the PSU... it really is tiny
