This is all from newegg. I posted before but not many responses but i changed it a bit and shortened it up. Any suggestions or input would be great, especially if something is not compatible.

Looks good to me, what kind of gaming do you plan on doing? Also what kind of hard drive do you plan on dropping into it?

I currently playing League of Legends or Starcraft 2 but im really open to any games. Im just going to use the hard drive i just bought for my computer that stopped working. Its a Western Digital blue i think its 3Gbs but i cant remember. i Might downgrade the Graphics card to the Radeon 6870 to save some money casue im not too sure if its really worth the extra 100 to be a series up .

If you plan to OC, consider getting a CPU cooler like Cooler Master 212 Evo. If not, downgrade the CPU to a regular, non-k series 3570.

Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to get the locked i5-3570, you might as well get the i5-3450, the extra +-.2 GHz isn't going to make that much of a difference.

Depends on what GPU you go with - Radeon 7850 and GTX 560 require minimum 550W. If you want something higher like a 7870, 7950 or GTX 670, you'll want minimum 600W.

Why not use a case that supports the front panel USB 3.0 such as the Antec Three Hundred Two: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6811129180

I mean if ya got it, ya might as well use it.


That's a good choice, I'd suggest the Corsair 300R as well: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Actually, all three can run on 550W.

yes good idea did not realize that other case didnt have that. Any other suggestions? I might just end up downgrading the the 6870 but not for sure.
