More about first build input look
  1. 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.
  2. Whats all purpose Gaming, internet, ? or gaming, internet, Auto Cad, maya, 3D rendering ?
  3. well if im honest i thought the case for that price is daylight robbery.. id go

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021
    or

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129178

    both have good cooling and half the price. 3 200mm fans don't automatically make good cooing

    ^^^ I kind of like the case + it looks like you get a free cutting board with it!!! :kaola:
  5. if its a full tower case your looking for and $100 less

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

    you could put extra savings torwards better gpu

    ok cool if you like it then that wins over
  7. 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.
  8. 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=N82E16835103099

    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=N82E16817139032

    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=N82E16814130787

    was just an opinion if he has the cash yeah nice case
  10. 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.
  11. 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

    I would get a Z77 MoBo something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128544

    What is your budget ? for the whole system ?
  13. 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=N82E16811133188

    GPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130782

    SSD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227791

    PSU RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.968279

    MOBO CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.951181

    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
