Hello all, I'm getting ready to place an order for my new gaming PC.

I'm pretty set on everything, but I would really like to hear some feedback before I order. I just want to make sure that everything looks good and compatible. Like the MB with the Processor, sticks and Graphics card. Or the PSU.

Etc.. etc...

This will be my first build, so I just want things to go smoothly.

Thank you.

oh, and if I'm missting something that I need for everything to work, then please let me know.

Your link doesn't work. I'd need to see that before I could suggest changes.

Sorry about that I thought it was public


Don't include software in your budget (that anti-malware software is actually malware itself), the mousepad is a waste of money - and don't get that motherboard. The problem with B75 is the parallel and serial ports - which haven't been used in like 10 years.

For $1K go with something like this:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($229.99 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($30.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($43.99 @ Newegg)

Hard Drive: Crucial M4 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($119.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card ($246.97 @ Newegg)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($64.98 @ Newegg)

Add whatever keyboard, mouse and anything else you need and you're good to go. Way too much on accessories and things you don't need in the initial build.

I'm still new at all of this and I have no experience, so I really need the help. Thank you very much in your answer, but could you clarify a little if you don't mind? This is a better build then what I had as far as the basics? Graphics card, psu, processor, mb and so on?

Better GPU, unlocked CPU, better motherboard, stronger power supply, better primary SSD, RAM that is compatible with the motherboard (that 1.65V RAM won't work with Sandy / Ivy Bridge), and I ditched most of the accessories and things you don't need (malware software, antivirus, mousepad, headset, etc etc). You can always add that stuff later, no need to get it initially. Your build should concentrate on these areas only: case, PSU, GPU, motherboard, CPU, RAM, storage (SSD/HD/optical) , and monitor. You want to get the best bang for your buck in those areas that you can, you can get everything else later. OS is pretty much an after thought, as is all the peripherals, accessories, and things of that nature.

One question, I'm not planning on using this for anything but a couple of games. I don't store movies or music or images.

Could I get away with just the ssd?

You could - I personally don't recommend it unless you have a secondary HD - the cost per GB just isn't worth it most of the time. The thing is games can really fill up an SSD very quickly and after formatting a 128GB SSD only has 110.91 GB of free space, and after OS install you have about ~80GB left, that doesn't leave you much for games or anything else.

i would still get a mechanical HDD, even if its only 500gigs, keeps your SSD uncluttered and you are never going to worry about space

dont want to exactly recommend pirating but windows 7 is not worth paying for if you can get free. the only OS i have ever payed for was a Snow Leopard upgrade back when i still had a mac. other than that i have always got an OS for free whether its borrowing from a friend or other ways, a disk isnt worth $100+ IMHO

The 6870 is a far better performer than a reference 560 is, the cost difference isn't worth it.
