Gaming Rig, The Final Stage

Hey guys,

Some of you may have seen me about asking loads of questions about components as I am building my first gaming rig, nothing too fancy.

I finally have all my parts in mind and am ready to hit the buy button and wait for them all to arrive so I can start my build.

I currently have;

Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU
Asus P8Z77-V LX Motherboard
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 1600MHz

I will be buying;

Sapphire 11200-07-20G Graphics Card (2GB, HD7850, GDDR5)
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache
Adata XPG SX900 128GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Hard Drive
OcUK Battle 750W Dual Rail High Efficiency Modular '80 Plus' Power Supply

I would just like to make a final check with the lovely guys on Tom's and be sure that all these components are compatible and of decent standard?

Is there is anything major I'm missing? (I know I still need a case, but have no clue on size)

Would you recommend anything different/better?


Thankyou for your help, Sqoh

  2. Budget is about £600 - 700. Which is near enough that everything adds up to, I live in the UK.
  3. so 700 pounds basically?
  4. Try a Cm Storm Enforcer i have it on my rig and its awesome the downside of it is the cheapo dust filters it has but that doesent justify how awesome the case is only £74.99.

  6. Oh cool, Thanks for all your help. Ill take a look at those parts now.

    In terms of the parts I have listed. They are all compatible?

    And if I go for some mix and matching between the two lists everything would be ok?

    Thankyou, Sqoh.
  7. yes, i dont see any reason why they wouldnt be compatible.
