Things I already Have:

Moniter

Keyboard @ Mouse

Win 7 Ultimate

Optical Drive

WD Black (Raid 0) 500gb

Parts i choose from Newegg:

Case= http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133188
$$ 250.00

PSU= http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010
$$150.00

Motherboard= http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131821

I was thinking about getting ssd but that will have wait. also, i have decided to stick with the stock cooler for CPU for now, if i need a better CPU cooler should i go for liquid colling or just Cooler?

please let me know if all the parts are compatible and i will be happy to get some advice.

thank you for your time..

Looks like it will work to me.

Thought: If you are overclocking you need a CPU cooler, if you are not then you dont need the Sabertooth. Might be worth a slightly cheaper mobo in order to buy a $50 cooler. When I was looking I found that the blue Asus Mobo's had more features at better price points. With a sweet case like this you shouldn't really have heat issues.

I agree that future upgrades should include an SSD. I understand why you are waiting though -- and prices are dropping fast so putting it off cant hurt too much.

I have to disagree with some of the case arguments here. Its a high-end build, if he wants a high-end case that's his call. (I say this as the owner of a $250 Silverstone ... haha) I wouldn't buy something with plastic.

Well all of your parts are compatible and it should all work fine together.

However, I would suggest you ditch that case. It's way over priced. You can get a way better case than that for half the money. Then you would have the money to spend on a decent CPU cooler. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is only $29.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You also have way more CPU than you really need unless you are doing some serious Video rendering or transcoding. Get a i5 3570K instead and save about $80 there.

Unless you are planning to get a second video card the 750W PSU is more than you really need. Get one around 550-600W instead. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

With those savings you could spend more on the graphics card and have a really sweet gaming machine that would perform almost any other task as well. Check this out: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Your build is kind of disproportional IMO.

You are spending way too much on a case and on a motherboard and way too little on a graphics card.

Case: Antec Nine Hundred
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
CPU: i5-3570K
CPU Cooler: Hyper 212 EVO
GPU: EVGA GTX

I listed the CPU Cooler but you only really need it if you plan on overclocking.

thank you guys all for taking a time to go thru all the part. now about the case believe me i was going to get the cooler master

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119160

but then i saw the level 10 gt. i know its too much money on case but its irresistible for me i love that case, however i will make decision when i order.

now for the mother board it is much money money and i was looking at this instead so i can put those money toward better GPU like you guys suggested.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131806

now for the GPU i was looking at this card

Your parts are 1197 ( mine parts are 1279 - 20 MIR ) < this is with a SSD

i5 setup vs the i7 you have there, for a all around setup IMO you dont need the i7

CASE http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SSD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

MOBO CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

You still can hold off on the SSD and take off 124 off my build

Its your all ( BUT ) for a allaround system i would go i5 3750K GTX 670
