[Build] First Gaming Build

Hey guys,

My first time trying to build a computer. Here is my build after long hours of research;

Graphics Card: ASUS Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card
Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GTS Mid
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
PSU: Antec TruePower TP-750
CPU: i5-2500K
Motherboard: ASRock Extreme4 Z77
Monitor: VS248H

One of my question is with the PSU; I know a 650W is enough for this build but;

1) Do you guys think the 750 will be more of a future proof PSU?

2) Do I need a CPU cooler if I plan to overclock or will it work fine without it?

3) Do you guys have any suggestion on what I should change/modify.



P.S. Amateur trying to build a PC for the first time.

  1. 1.) yes 750 will be fine but if you want 850 will great and have some good head room

    2.) yes you will stock cooler wouldn't cut it

    3.) your build is pretty solid
  2. Thanks for the quick reply. With CPU Cooler, do you have any recommendations or is a cheap cooler good enough?

  4. @gamerkila57, you are recommending a 850W for a single HD7850? If it was physically possible, a 850W can run 4 HD7850's.

    A decent 400W can run a HD7850. Get a 500W for headroom and 600W for CF. I'd recommend the PC P&C Silencer Mk III 500W going for around $65.

    Get a 3570k for almost the same price and a CM Hyper 212 Evo.
