Hello,
I have gotten credit approval and am excited to buy pc hardware very soon. But I would like your help first. Check my parts list below plz. Is it compatible? Also would like any ideas for improvement especially concerning graphics quality. I will be using it with a 1080 led samsung 120 hertz refresh tv(un55d6000)
Ordering all parts from newegg potentially. Is that a good idea? What are your personal recent experiences? I will not go to microcenter.

i5 3570k
coolermaster hyper 212 plus
asus p8z77 v lk
gskill value series 2*8gb 1333
sapphire radeon 7870 2gb (is this the best brand of this model#gpu?)
p c brand 750 watt silver80+ non modular
Plextor ps m3s 128gb ssd
antec 300 illusion
asus optical drive burner

okay. So total with shipping is like 1150usd. My limit was supposed to be 1000usd. But there is 95usd in rebates. Do many companies honor those? Assume that I will document them perfectly ect. Any questons plz ask. Thanks~

with the ram you want some low profile 1.5v ram. to fit under the heat sink. kingston or crusial ram make ram with small heat spreaders you also want 1600 ram not 1333. drop it down to a eight gig kit. I have eight gigs and windows 8. just looking at web pages i have 7g of ram free. also want tto use a good name brand power supply. a good 650w will be fine for one card if you think you sli or crossfire then the 750 should be fine. you did not post if you had a main data hard drive i see you have a boot ssd. there are better ssd then plex out there for the price.

Thank you for your timely reply big cyco1. But your parts list includes microcenter. And I had thought it to be better to order all pc parts at once from 1 site. That way only 1 site to deal with if rma ect. I also use and love Pc Partpicker. On that site besides the microcenter price there isn't usually more than a 5 usd difference from other sites and newegg price if any. Please forum tell me if ordering from newegg or thinking that ordering all from 1 site are bad or mistaken ideas.

I appreciate that. As far as the ram goes I will for sure change it to 1600. That is something I was considering. In a 2 4gb configuration. And I purposely omitted an hdd because I didnt know if I needed one. I have a very recently posted thread in the ssd section titled " bad idea." that asks that exact question. ( Do I need the hdd is what it asks.) Thirdly, I had changed my psu from an ocz to a p c power and cooling because a forum member said that it was better in my last homebuild thread. (I know ocz bought p c, but the pc silencer 2 was still highly rated...) Thank you
