Gaming Rig

Silver arrow sb-e $84
Asus p8z77-v pro $214
OCZ Vertex 4 256GB $209
HAF-922 $100
seasonic m12II 750 $120
i5 3570K $230
carsair xms3 16GB $89

Those are the prices I've come up with on various sites, I plan on adding a gtx690 to the system when I can, but to get started these are the parts/prices I've found. Let me know if there are suggestions to be made or things that I am missing. I have some old sata HDDs I was planning on throwing in the system as well for additional storage.

I'm trying to keep the price around $1000 for these parts since the video card will double it

  1. what????

    give me your budget, what parts you need, where do you live (country), intended use, and future upgradability options (crossfire, SLI, overclocking).

    ill build you a nice rig
  2. My budget is around $2000; if its worth it I can stretch a bit above that.

    I really liked the look of the scout case, but that does not have USB 3 on the front panel and I thought that would be nice, so I chose the HAF-922, similar look but newer.

    I live in the US, the parts would be a full build gaming computer that I would like to overclock. as far as upgrades, I really like nvidia products for video cards. I will hopefully be putting in a GTX690 and if Im really lucky in the way future adding a second, but that is not needed.

    I could go on and on about why I chose the parts listed, but anything you can suggest would be appreciated. Keep the questions comming, I've never asked about computer builds before, so I sound like a jackarse Im sure.
  3. this is more of a black and blue themed system. hope you dont mind
