Hey, I'm building a Gaming PC that will run BF3, Skyrim and Photoshop and I'm looking for feedback on my component selection. My budget is $2000 (give or take) that includes monitor, keyboard and mouse. This is my first PC so keep that in mind .
CPU: Intel I5 3570k
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 GV-N670OC-2GD
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2x4GB) 240 pin DDR3
SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 2.5in
Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Seriesr TX650 V2
Optical: ASUS DRW Black
Monitor: ASUS VH236H Black 23"
Mouse: RAZER DeathAdder
Keyboard: AZIO Levetron KB577U MECH5
I would appreciate any feedback you might have!
That $1881.94 total includes TAX and Shipping, but it is still above budget. I'd cut back to the Hyper 212 EVO, i5-3570k, and 8GB of RAM. HT isn't needed for some photoshop and neither is the 16GB of RAM. Unless it is professional editing that needs to be done ASAP, forget about those extras.
