Hello :D  I'm a console gamer and I have seen the error of my ways. I want to experience the ultimate gaming experience... PC GAMING!

I already have my mind set on which components to purchase, but I would like to have some feedback on the rig I am planning to build. So, here are the specs!

Haf 912 case- max 120mm fans for the case

I7 2700k (might wait for I7 3700k)

ASRock Fatal1ty z68 professional gen3 Intel atx mainboard

Win 7 professional

120gb intel 320 series ssd

2TB HDD

8gb ddr3 ram

CM hyper 212 evo CPU cooler (could this handle a 4.0 - 4.5 overclock at decent temps?)

850 corsair psu

And an EVGA superclocked gtx 680

Plus a 32" lcd monitor 1920x1080

All of this will run me about 2k.

I think it's pretty kickass but I would like to see others' opinions. Is it missing something or is it fine as is? Thanks! :bounce:

Build it yourself

you definitely dont need a 850 watt psu , and the 2700K wont improve gaming performance over a 2500K

Not worth paying fatal1ty a cut either when all Z68 or Z77 mb's will perform identically

agreed if you are gaming get the 2500k or the new i5 from ivybridge. i would get a z77 not a z68. If you want to crossfire then you will want a high watt PSU. If you want to stick with the "one powerful card" and never plan to CF and just keep getting 1 card then you do not need a high watt power supply. Build it yourself and you will save a bunch on money that you could put into better hardware.

I went to cyber power and you can get that build for 2k WITHOUT the monitor. also add another 75 bucks just for their shipping.

if you REALLY need to order from that site then make sure you google some codes for coupons. 5% off free shipping etc can be found all the time for the site.

I have an i7 2700k and Hyper 212 evo. I'm sitting at 62c max load with 4.7ghz and 28c idle so it defiantly does the trick. The stock cooler had me at 73c on full load with stock clock let alone 4.7ghz.
Your computer is nice but if your getting the Hyper 212 get some low profile ram.
And look at some ASRock boards, good value :)

Go with i5-2500K
ASRock Z77
Thermaltake FRIO cpu cooler
8gb Hyper X
750w Corsair v2 PSU

Add in your 680 if its available and you should be well below 2k, probably around 1.4k.

Definately use a 5% off coupon and definately but the monitor and other peripherals on newegg or amazon with promo deals. cyb will charge you $50 more to ship a monitor. newegg and amazon ship free.
