My new gaming build


I have decided which components i want to get for my new gaming build, which are the following:

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB WIFI
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K
GPU: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD7850 OC 2GB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Performance Memory Module 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz
PSU: 700W CoolerMaster Silent Pro Modular
Case: Cooler Master HAF X
HDD: Seagate Barracuda© Green SATA 6Gb/s 2TB Hard Drive ST2000DL003
SSD: Samsung 128GB 830 Series SATA 6Gb/s 2.5"
Liquid cooling system: Corsair H80 Hydro Series High Performance CPU Cooler CWCH80

Another alternative for the liquid cooling system is the Antec Kúhler H2O 920, which one would you recommend? Also i would really appreciate recommendations for the other components mentioned above. My budget is £1000.

  1. Find a cheaper board like the Asrock z77 extreme4 and add a $25 - $30 wifi card to it. Your going to end up with better wife and for a lot cheaper. Change out the psu to something solid like a Cosair 650w or 750w psu or XFX which is also manufactured by Seasonic and then look up the benchmarks on that H80 cooler and see if there is anything comparable temp wise for cheaper. You can find that Asrock board @ Dabs UK for 110 quid.
  2. For £1000 I would suggest dropping the H80, the Cooler Master PSU, and switching out your GPU.

    Try this:

    Case: Corsair Carbide 300R - £53.16
    PSU: 650W PSU, XFX Pro Series Core Edition - £66.78
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H - £125.72
    CPU: 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-3570K - £178.98
    Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 - £43.07
    RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 1.5V - £40.56
    SSD: 64GB Crucial M4 - £61.97
    HD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST 7200RPM - £115.32
    Optical: Sony DVD Burner - £16.06
    Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 670 - £328.40

    Total: £1,039.61 (w/VAT)
