Hi all, currently picking parts for a new computer build. Im almost done, but I need some touching up on things. Also, it should be said that I am new to building computers and might need some additional parts added on.

Quick Description: I am going to be gaming on this computer - games such as minecraft, WoW, D3, etc. I need a computer to game at higher quality, and need to know if the parts I have picked out are sufficient. I did make a thread a while ago about this, but most of the things suggested are not in stock.

- Case: HAF 912
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Power Supply: (I need suggestions)

- Motherboard: (I need suggestions)

- CPU: i5-2400 3.1 GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Memory: Crucial 2x4g
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Graphics Card: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-102-...

- Storage: Not stressing about this right now, suggestions would be nice though.

Any additions/suggestions to my build or expectations are welcomed. Very new to this and need all the help I can get.

1. itll all depends on budget. for mobo, if you are going barebone, then h61, but i highly advise you to either use:

H67
H77
or B75



Mobo as they are pretty much mobos without overclocking. this applies to sub 100$ mobos

feel free to get a z68/75/77 mobo if you will overclock gpu or you are spending more than 100$ on a mobo.

2. as for psu, it all depends if you ever want to crossfire with that 6850. all you really need is 430w-500w for a stock build, but a 600w-650w is an option if you ever wanted to crossfire 6850's.

3. hard drive and solid state drives, just fit whatever you can in your budget. at a lower budget, try not to use an ssd, as that money is better off used for your gpu or another part of the computer.

Haha sorry I didn't include my budget, but right now im okay with a reasonable amount of money for each part, kind of like the parts I already selected. :ange: 

1. Ill definitely check those out and get back to you on that, I want to try overclocking in the near future, but im not stressing it now since I just started.



2. From what I have seen on reviews, is crossfiring when you put in two HD 6850 for better performance?



3. What is a GPU? Is that another part I need for my build?

2,. Yeah but it's always better to get the strongest GPU you can get for your money. Crossfire and SLI - at least on the low - mid range end of the spectrum is meant for when the card is at the end of its' life.

3. GPU is short hand for graphics processing unit, or your video card.

What's the budget on this system? I could suggest that if I knew.

My budget is between $500-$700. Maybe a bit more if needed.

That all looks great! Though I just have a few extra questions before I purchase...

1. Is there any other good optical drive? Currently the one from the USA Newegg is unavailable.


2. If I were to purchase this all within the next few days, would I have all the parts and be ready to assemble?
