Well I've been making multiple builds online... but this is the "final" build I've decided to make... Can one of you reassure me that this build will theoretically work (Ignoring if anything is damaged or any of that ***). This is also a budget gaming build as well as other things but I won't get into that... mainly gaming and performance in general. Budget is $1000 CDA.

If there is ANY suggestions please do so. If anything isn't compatitible (I've checked already and it seems fine... FINE... But I'm a noob so what do I know? lol PCI Express 2.0 luckily for my GTX 550 Ti model) Or there is a better option considering right now I'm at $946.10.

THANK YOU <3

Looks good. But the mobo is the weakest point in your set up.

I would opt for this one, no question about that.

U can definitely use this one -> ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 -> ... Latest Z77...

I just build PC with this mobo and I like the BIOS, its looks like this.

Works as expected @ 4.4GHz



That is a great mobo choice for the CPU. It has good power design for OC.

It adds option for 2 GPU cards (x8/x8) and has more phases, 8+4 vs 4+2 on the pro version.

It absolutely doesn't matter,

the PCIE 2.0 or 3.0 - no difference for u with any card available today and in near future.

Everything looks to be in order. This looks like it will be a fun first build and it has some good specs for a $1000 build. Good luck and I hope you get it up and running without any problems.

And if u can get another $100, get an SSD to get your max speed into some serious level.

That is if your budget permits : )
