Hello,

In about a few weeks I will be building my very first gaming PC. The games I'll be playing are World of Warcraft, Diablo III and hopefully Battlefield 3 on ultra at resolution 1920x1080.

If everything looks good I will be ordering the parts in a few days and if not, please provide suggestions or feedback on my choice of setup. Thanks!

There's only one thing I would change in your build... Have the shipping address changed to mine ;)

Yeah that's a way overpriced 580. GTX 670 is the best bang for buck right now.

Your spending almost $100 more than you have to on the SSD. Intel's are good, but not $100 better than the Crucial M4 256Gb (16Gb extra as well)

Get the Hyper 212 EVO. Only a bit more and its better than the Hyper 212+.

Assuming that your following aboves advice and changing the GPU.

You have yourself a very solid rig, go have fun with it.


Awesome, thanks for the recommendations! I'll definitely be making those changes to the build and will have everything ordered soon. :D 

By the way, you provided me with the wrong link for the Crucial SSD but I found it anyways. Thanks again.
