I just bought a Core i5-3570K CPU, a Asus P8Z77-V LX Motherboard and Corsair 8GB RAM. First time trying to build a PC used mainly for long hours of gaming and general use and was wondering what type of power supply i need to support these compoments. Havent really looked into graphics cards, coolers or harddrives yet but if any of you have some in mind that would help me out alot.
I still need a Graphics Card, HDD, NIC and some sort of CPU cooler, haven't really looked into these yet.
My budget would be ~£150 for each component but would be willing to spend more if needed.
As it is my first build I would love some advice on all compents.
I understand you´re asking for advise on graphics cards, coolers and HDD. Your CPU, Mobo, RAM comb is really good, so it deserves a good graphics card!
The Radeon HD 7850 2 GB is a very good deal at the moment, as its price went down a bit. This card needs at least a 500W PSU, but as you may want to overclock, then it is a good idea to have an extra room, a 600W of a good brand (Corsair, Antec, Seasonic) PSU is recommended.
There are some good deals on HDD, but if you really want performance for your system, then get a SSD too!
