I watched the following video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtM4Vlynk2k with the title ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe, SUGO 08, Ivy Bridge

I am very interested to do the same build but want to add a blue ray drive.

Can i do it? (Some people online say that powersupply doesnt have adapter for the drive. Is that true?)


CPU // Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core $209.99
CPU Cooler // Corsair H80 92.0 CFM Liquid $89.99
Motherboard // Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe Mini ITX LGA1155 $179.99
Memory // G.Skill Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 $74.99
Storage // Crucial M4 256GB 2.5" SSD $199.99
Western Digital Scorpio Black 500GB 2.5" 7200RPM $69.99
Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM $139.99
Video Card // EVGA GeForce GTX 570 2.5GB $299.99
Case // Silverstone SST-SG08B Mini ITX Desktop w/600W Power Supply $218.47
Operating System // Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 (64-bit) $130.20

If you have any suggestions on changing any of these part please let me know. The case looks good (although very cluttered)

The 570 is a big card, and with a liquid cooler, you'll have space issues. I suggest a mATX build.

I can see the space issues but that is not my problem on that build.

Unfortunately, there is nobody here that wants to respond on that question, but lots of wise guys that want to just recommend something of their own.
I understand the need of showing off your knowledge but don't appreciate doing this when a specific question is asked.

At least am I thankful of other decent responses I got on other posts.

He just recommended you a build that performs better than the one you suggested. It has a better GPU. And do you really need Windows 7 Pro, and 16GB of RAM? Your initial build will have issues with the 570 which is pretty big, and the H80 will also take up a good amount of room.

And sometimes good posts get pushed down and nobody sees them. Happens a lot, sorry it happened to you.
