I'm building a computer for high def gaming. I wanted to build something that will last for a couple years and then be easily upgradeable. I've narrowed it down to this.

Disk Drive http://www.lg.com/au/burners-drives/lg-BH14NS40-burner-...

Tower Case http://www.amazon.com/Antec-Nine-Hundred-Black-Computer...

HDD or SSD http://www.wiredzone.com/WesternDigital-WD1000DHTZ-Hard...

Power Supply http://www.iibuy.com.au/corsair-cmpsu850axau-850w-corsa...

Ram http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/847180-REG/Crucia...

Motherboard http://au.msi.com/product/mb/P67A-GD80--B3-.html

Processor http://ark.intel.com/products/52214/Intel-Core-i7-2600K...(8M-Cache-up-to-3_80-GHz)

Operating System http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows/shop/windows...

Graphics Cards http://techreport.com/articles.x/23419


So please rate this PC and let me know if I should change anything! Thanks a lot everyone

I disagree with the above post. If you are gaming all you need is an i5 but I would get a 2500k or 3570k as they can be overclocked. I have the 3570k and love it. If you do get a z77 motherboard like the asrock z77. I have an asus sabertooth z77 but thats a bit overkill. I do agree about getting a 128gb ssd and a 7200 rpm hard disk. as for PSU stick with the 850 and get a gtx 670. the 850 will give lots of wiggle room for a 2nd 670 down the line and enough power for anything you add later to the rig. (I.E. fans, lights, liquid cooling, pcie inputs usb etc etc) also I am a big fan of nice large cases. http://www.amazon.com/Antec-Fleet-DF-85-Gaming-Computer... is a wonderful case for just a bit more.
