First Build Advice

Hey I just want to say thanks in advance. I have recently been looking to upgrade my computer because I'm playing games with higher requirements. I have most of the parts chosen I just want to make sure I didn't over look some detail.

Parts I Have Chosen:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=18980065

Approximate Purchase Date: sometime around end of July early August

Budget Range: Want to stay to as close to 1000 as possible

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies

Preferred Website for Parts: Newegg.com

Location: U.S.

Parts Preferences: Intel

Overclocking: Probably

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future

Going to get Monitor preferably 1920x1080 and am thinking of eventually going to dual monitor. I will also need to get a operating system which will be windows 7, just need to choose which one. Thanks a ton I want to make sure this build goes good. If there's anything I'm missing please let me know. Thanks again.

  1. Looks good man, but the power supply you picked is not in production anymore and it's also way more wattage than you'll need: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020

    I also recommend this GTX 570 instead of the 560 ti that you picked; they are both practically the same price:

    or if you want a different cooler and cheaper card:

  2. Hey thanks man. I dont know if this ones any good but its the one that's that supposed to be on the wish list
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127565
    Sorry about that.
  3. A 7850 would be better
  4. Yeah 7850 or 7870 would be a better.

    7870:

    7850:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127663

    but other than that it seems a pretty good build apart from the power supply which the guy already mentioned :)
  5. Thanks a bunch I'll probably order the parts when I get back from vacation
  6. If you didn't get that vacation you could Have gotten top of the line stuff.... LOL
