Please check my build.

Hey everyone, I've just finished tweaking my build and I'd appreciate it if anyone could check it over and make sure I have all the necessary parts. I'll probably be buying everything in the next day or two.

More about please check build
  1. eeh no.

    what is your budget and are you going to overclock or do any dual video card setups.

    i can suggest something much better
  2. My budget for just the computer is around $1000. What's wrong with this setup?
  3. are you going to overclock?

    are you going to do dual video card setups in the future?

    answer these questions so i can help you out better


    problems

    1: h77 boards cant overclock
    2: you dont need thermal paste. coolers have some
    3: there are better power supplies in that price range
    4; there are better cards than the 570 that are around the same price
    5: corsair memory isnt the best nor the cheapest

    yeah...
  4. I am not planning on overclocking or doing a dual video card setup. What other parts would you recommend.
  5. However, I'd like to have the option to overclock
  6. Best answer
    ok then. here you go

    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/f2cD

    get the OS from him. its much cheaper and its a retail version. ask for the disc and not a download

    http://us.ebid.net/for-sale/microsoft-windows-home-premium-x-71238157.htm
  7. if you are to overclock, you would have to get this instead
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/f2dn
  8. Looks good. I'm gonna stick with my previous build, but substitute some of the parts with the ones you've selected. I really appreciate it.
  9. what are the final specs? i can probably change some things up even more given most of the components you chose can be improved on easily

    I'm going to stick with the 570, mainly because it's cheaper and it'll run all the games I want to play very well. I swapped the mobo, the psu, the RAM, and the CPU cooler with the ones you selected.
  11. this isnt much more but it performs much better while using less than 1/3 of the power that the 570 sucks up
