Building a new computer for Tera, Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2

Hey, I decided its time to build a new computer because my old one is just really outdated.

I've put together a list of items I plan on buying, and I am pretty new to the whole computer building scene. If anyone can add any input to my list that would be great, also if you have another idea instead of a item listed.. please let me know.. thanks!

My budget is around 700-850 and my goal is to max all the games with really good FPS (50-60).

(All prices are in Can $)

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 - $65
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233

GPU: Zotac Geforce 560ti - $240
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500236

PSU: Corsair Builder Series 600W - $80
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k - $224

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x 4GB) - $45

Fans: Cooler Master R4 120mm Case Fan - $9

Fans: Cooler Master Megaflow 200mm Case Fan - $20
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103072

Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 - $40
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065

MOBO: ASRock Z68 E3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel - $150
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271

As for the hard drive, I will be taking a 500GB Hard Drive out of my computer and placing it into the new computer.

If anyone has any other recommendations for parts, or know a site that has a certain part for cheap; please let me know. I am looking for the best bang for the buck while staying in my $700-850 max range.


Thank you for your time!

    Looks pretty good.

    GPU - Consider the HD 7850 as it is priced the same and will have a bit more power. ...while consuming less power.

    MEM - Skip the tall heat spreaders. They will impeed airflow and may get in the way of the Hyper 212 if you add a second CPU fan in a push / pull setup.

    CPU Cooler - The Hyper 212 EVO replaced the 212+ and will cool a little better.
  2. Also, if you plan on adding a second GPU down the road in SLI / CF bump the PSU up to a 750w unit. Stick with Antec, Corsair, XFX or Seasonic...
  3. Yea i was trying to find him a better power supply, but was affraid someone would comment that he already had enough... Ill begin the search for a better PSU.

    I currently use this model for my two GTX 560 ti's and it handles them quite nice, just to add it all up. I also use only 1 HDD, 1 OD, Phenom II 980 at stock, and a high end Motherboard and it holds it all up with the fans and light kits running off of it.
  4. Something easily forgotten, but is there a dvd drive included in your list? ^_^ Maybe switching it out from your old computer?
