as for a aftermarket heatsink, its not necessary but its nice to have one since it cools the CPU much better

as for a extra case fan, the fans inside are very good and you dont need more

if you are not overclocking, you should be gettting a i5 3450 and a h77m d3h motherboard.

you should also get this video card instead. the price difference is not really worth the small performance gain

get this psu instead

sorry that was badly worded i mean im not overclocking now will later when i either change graphic to a better 1 but for now and the games im going to play its not needed so i think 3570k should be good till then im mostly worried about the psu is it low should i get 600w 1 but u linked 450w 1 so im guessing 500 is still good soo until then should i not get a fan and run this on all stock then when i do plan on overclocking should i buy the cooler master hyper 212 evo?

still, id suggest the graphics card change since it performs about the same but is 30 pounds or so cheaper

if you are going to do crossfire in the future, id suggest the 650w model. either way, i dont recommend ocz psu s. not known to be reliable

id recommend you to get one when they are on sale. prices usually only go up

Hey i changed the psu to a corsair 650w 1 also should i get msi r7870 hawk i can get it cheaper then the non custom version

i suggested a sapphire 7870, which is very good. if the hawk is cheaper or the same price, id get it. otherwise, sapphire is the way to go with AMD cards

the psu i suggested is identical to the corsair unit, but its cheaper. if its the same price, id stick with xfx since their warranty is very good and their customer service from what i heard is great. corsair has good customer service but it takes forever for many people since there are alot of people who buy corsair
