Potential components for new pc

You probably want to ignore the links as they're in Dutch.

CPU: Intel i5 3570 cpu €199,98, 2 years warranty

GPU: Club3D Radeon 7850 €212, 50, 2 years warranty

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-Z77-D3H € 105,80, 2 years warranty

HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200rpm 64MB SATA3 €109, 5 years warranty

Cooler: Gelid Tranquillo Rev.2 €32,90, 5 years warranty

RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3,1600-8GB KIT €46, 95, 10 years warranty

Disc Drive: LG Dvd-brander 24x GH24NS90 €19,61 , 2 years warranty

PSU: Nexus NX-5000 R3 530W €65,15, 2 years warranty

Case: Corsair Carbide 300R €65,90, 2 years warranty

Total Price: 858.1300 EUR = 1060.3054 USD

The stock cooler of the CPU is probably enough for this system, so maybe I won’t get the Gelid Tranquillo Rev.2 cooler which would cut the price down to 825.2300 EUR = 1019.6542 USD.

  1. Since that's a non K series CPU you won't be overclocking; the carbides are well cooled cases; and the Gigabyte boards dissipate heat just fine - the stock intel cooler would be fine.
  2. yeah I forgot to say I'm not a pc techy guy so I won't be overclocking.
  3. 1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.
    High-medium gaming, web browsing, and for study.
