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=N82E168...
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? :)

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.

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 :)

^yes it does it' job very well.

Any suggestions? :)

No looks like a nice build,keep us posted on progress.
July 12, 2012 3:12:09 PM

Thoughts on Cooler Master Storm Enforcer case? The reviews look good and so does the case itself. :p 
July 12, 2012 3:24:17 PM

I love the case it was worth every penny.

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?

^Asus DCII,MSi TF III/lightning,gigabyte windforce x3 are top 3 custom coolers IMO.
