Need final confirmation on gaming build compatibility

cpu: intel 3570k

gpu: evga gtx 570 2560mb

mobo: asus p8z77-v

case: cooler master haf x full atx tower

power supply: cooler master silent pro gold 1000w

memory: corsair vengance 8 gb (2 x 4gb) 1600mhz ddr3

hdd: seagate barracuda 1tb 7200 rpm 32mb buffer

burner: asus 24x oem

This is my first build so I'm still a bit noobish when it comes to some things

  1. Looks good to me. Full tower is probably overkill though, mid tower is plenty big enough. what about an SSD?
  2. The power supply is overkill as well. Try http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095
  3. I agree, 1000w is excessive. 700w or even 750w I'd say. And I also agree to nhasian, an SSD would be an add-on well worth it, but be sure to keep your seagate you have picked out to be a secondary.
  4. get this PSU

    get these ram

    it looks nicer with the mobo not to mention Corsair vengeance has tall heatsinks unless your getting their low profile ones
    also recommend this because it has a 15% price reduction


    Case: i really like 500R white it is less than what you are currently getting with not that much in loss

    Well I was planning on doing sli in the future and also adding an ssd and maybe another harddrive but I'm going over my budget already. Im basically future proofing my system

    If you're already going over your budget, then you can take out the SSD at no harm, but the power supply, if you want to do sli in the future, then probably leave it at 1000w. I have no idea honestly what sli for two 570's requires, 850w may even be enough.

    The seagate 1tb would work with your system if you wanna keep down your budget. The SSD would just give you better boot times, game loading times, data transfer, etc. It's an upgrade worth looking into adding on in the future though.
