How does this system look? ($900 Gaming PC)

Hi, the people on this forum have finally convinced me, and I am going to build the computer. This is what I have so far, does anyone see any problems with it?

Would I need a better CPU fan for overclocking? Also, I have no internet in my room. I've seen some prebuilt systems with like WiFi cards. I'm not sure what they are called, but I would need one of those so I could access the internet.

Thanks,

  1. You cant overclock with that motherboard (i saw on the reviews) and LOL you would buy a prebuilt one instead LOL
  2. And you didnt even choose a cpu cooler....
  3. Check my signature builds!
  4. well you do not really need a CPU cooler as it is fine for light overclocking and stock

    i would go for the build that doesn't overclock and spend more on items like PSU, and GPU

    keep the ASrock 75B and change CPU to
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116506
    $10 less than i5 2500k and you can spend less on boards that don't use OC
    only think you lose is overclocking which you do not really need as gaming is mostly just the GPU performance

    also change the ram into 2x4GB it will be cheaper than 4x2GB by about $6-$10 and gives you space if you want to upgrade to 16GB(don't recommend unless you do some heavy application stuff such as photoshop and video rendering)

    since ASrock 75B only has 1x PCIe 3.0 slot and you will probably only use 1 GPU anyways

    get a 500-600W PSU as that is all you need
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703035
    $59.99 with rebate and has a 15% promo code

    if you want more power(which you do not need)

    this one is a pretty nice one from NZXT
  5. If you are not going to overclock then what the point of getting a unlocked CPU??

    There's no need to be crass to him, folks. @OP, I'm assuming this means you've no need to purchase a monitor/mouse/keyboard within this budget? If so, here's what I'd do with $900:

    CPU - Intel i5-3570k - $230
    HSF - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - $30
    Mobo - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - $135
    RAM - G.Skill Ares 2x4GB DDR3-1600 - $55
    GPU - HIS IceQ X Radeon HD 7850 - $245
    PSU - PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk.III 600W - $90
    Case - Cooler Master HAF912 - $60
    HDD - Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200RPM - $65
    ODD - ASUS DRW24 - $17
    Total - $927 + shipping

    The total is a little bit over your budget - but this is also a conservative estimate; I didn't include any rebates (only instant discounts), so should any of them work, you'll be right at your budget (or lower, if you're lucky). If you haven't already, you could take advantage of ShopRunner's 30-day trial to get free 2-day shipping on all of the parts, as well. As for the computer itself: I chose the 3570k + Z77 motherboard because I figure you'd rather not replace that for as long as you can, so that's the option that will give you the most mileage in this budget. The ASRock Extreme4 also includes 2 PCIe 3.0 slots, so if you choose to Crossfire the 7850, then you'll have that option as well. You've got a highly reliable Seasonic-made power supply (it's re-branded and slightly reconfigured) putting out 600W - plenty for this build. The HAF912 is a veritably cool case (High Air-Flow 912) that's got plenty of room for more fans if you feel the need to get more, as well.

    IKR.
  8. I didn't say I wasn't overclocking, I just didn't realize you couldn't overclock with that motherboard.

    @mousseng
    That looks good. Do you know anything about the Wifi card thing? And yeah, I have a monitor, mouse and keyboard.

    All modern motherboards have integrated wireless/LAN chipsets in them, which enables them to access wired/wireless networks. No need for a separate wireless card.
  10. Oh, OK. Thank you for your help.
