New Build Advice and Thoughts

After much research i have decided these are the parts i want. In total it adds up to roughly £1000 is this a good price for the performance? What do you think of build in general price to one side? Will it play all of today's games at 1080 resolution on full settings at 40 fps+?

Corsair Carbide 500R White Case
Corsair AX 650W
Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H
Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz
Corsair H80
Corsair Vengeance 8GB
Crucial 128GB M4 SSD
Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 3X 2GB GDDR5
24x DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA Optical Drive

Thank you in advance.

  1. That's a good start but I'd drop the H80 and go with a strong air fan like a D14.
  2. The Noctua NH C14 is comparable and cheaper.

    My only concern is it not fitting in along side the ram as it is rather tall, will it be ok?

  5. It will fit just fine. I have the Hyper 212 EVO, which is taller, and it fits with PLENTY of room to spare.

    Why have you not got the d14 instead of the evo, is it better performance wise?
  7. I didn't feel as if I needed to OC past 4.4 GHz. It is stable enough for my taste.

    I have no intention of overclocking it but it will be on pretty much 24/7 downloading. so should i go for the evo or d14?
  9. Downloading 24/7 is not going to stress the CPU much at all. The Internet connection determines how fast the DL speed will be. So get the EVO.

    I know that haha i was just pointing out that if it is run 24/7 the cpu may be mildly hotter then if it were run 1 hour a day.
  11. I leave my PC on 24/7 and it never exceeds 35C when browsing the web.
