I'm just about ready. This will be my first build and as soon as the GTX 670 FTW becomes available I'll put my order in.

My build:
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($199.99)

Motherboard: ASRock H77M Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($69.99)

Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($45.99)

Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($64.99)

Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB Video Card ($407.98)

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.49)

Power Supply: Corsair 600W ATX12V Power Supply ($41.99)

Optical Drive: LG GH24LS70 DVD/CD Writer ($28.12)

Total: $928.54



I would like to know what you guys think? Any improvements? Any way I can save a little more money? I don't plan to overclock, but I bought the i5 2500k just incase i feel like in the future. I know i Will need to buy a different motherboard and PSU for that, but, for now, I don't need it.

Ok so, these are my suggestions upgrade to i5 3570k and mobo to asrock z77 pro3 that mobo is only 15$ more and the cpu is about 30$ more... If i was you i would wait and see the price drops on the 7950/7850 and then pick up a 7950 for about 300$/350$ so you can upgrade with my suggestions, Other wise your build is a pretty decent.

Thanks for the tip. What would be the advantage to the mobo you suggested? more room for upgrades later on in the future? or it just better quality?(I'm new to this so forgive my questions).
