Last questions about build

About to get a new pc and being a noob at pc building I came up with this :)


Intel Core i5-3570K (3.4GHz, 6MB Cache, LGA1155)


Giga Byte GA-Z77X-D3H


Corsair 650W, TX V2 series, 12cm fan, 80+


Asus Radeon HD7870, 2GB, GDDR5, DirectCU II


Corsair Vengeance Black, 8GB, DDR3, 1600MHz, CL9, Kit of 2


Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO


Cooler Master Storm Enforcer, Black

Western Digital 500GB, 7200rpm, 16MB, Sata III, Caviar Blue

I will use it mainly for gaming, maybe a bit of video editing/rendering, but nothing major.
The question is- will the components work fine together? And will everything fit in the case?
Excuse me for my poor English! ;c :)

    budget is about 1250$ and I already mentioned the use for the system.

    No need for a new monitor or OS

    you made some good choices,but i would suggest this power supply-
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020
    it's cheap,powerful and will handle 7870 CF and overclocking very well.
    another change is the case,get haf 912,it's only a few bucks more and a way better case.

    Thanks for the fast reply :)

    Gonna change the PSU and the case to the ones you suggested!

    P.S. Maybe I should get the Giga Byte Radeon HD7870, 2GB, GDDR5, OC instead of the ASUS one? :)
  5. You skimped a little on the case. I'd get something like the Corsair Carbide 400R or the Corsair Carbide 300R.

    The case is easy to overlook (especially on a first build) because you don't know what to look for. I did the same thing on my first build and every time I opened that computer I wished I'd spent more on the case.

    there's no need IMHO,haf 912 will serve very well.

    I'll just stay with haf 912, I really don't need a very fancy case. If it cools good then it's the case for me :)
  9. ^yes it does it' job very well.
  10. haf 912 < nice case

    Any suggestions? :)
  12. No looks like a nice build,keep us posted on progress.
  13. Thoughts on Cooler Master Storm Enforcer case? The reviews look good and so does the case itself. :p
  14. I love the case it was worth every penny.
  15. There's a possibility that I will have some extra money, what if I decide to get a gtx 670? Will the PSU be strong enough? Is gtx 670 a good choice?
  16. SR-71 Blackbird said:

    Already adedd that PSU to the list, I would also correct the list in the start of the topic if I could :)

    Can I also get opinions about switching to gtx 670?
  17. ^Asus DCII,MSi TF III/lightning,gigabyte windforce x3 are top 3 custom coolers IMO.
