Over the last month or so I have been doing casual research to finalize my build for gaming pc. The following components I am about to list are they components I feel are the most powerful, most reliable, best value and are easily available to me.
Unfortunately I live in Australia so some of the prices aren't the cheapest and I don't have any local stores to buy PC parts from so a lot of money is also spent of shipping/postage.
So this is my list:
Case: NZXT Phantom Black Full tower. (this is not part of my budget because I already own it.)
CPU: Intel i5 Ivy Bridge 3570k
PSU: Corsair HX-850w
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb 1600mhz
GPU: Gainward GTX 670 Phantom 2gb
Mobo: AsRock Extreme 4 Z77
HDD: 2 x 1tb HDD 7200rpm (this is not part of my budget because I already own it.)
SDD: Samsung 128gb SSD 830 Series
CPU Cooler: Notcua NH-U12P SE2 (this is not part of my budget because I already own it.)
ODD: any good quality blu ray player
OS: I will ghost my HDD that contains my OS onto my solid state, so this isnt part of my budget either.
This varies between 1500-1700 depending on store.
If there are any things you think should be changed please dont hesitate to mention.
I will take all feedback into consideration.
If you suggest a different choice for a certain component please include a reason why i.e. value, power, reliability.
Im not sure with some of the decisions you made, and im not sure if you used parts picker just to show a rough estimate of the price. but theres a couple of issues... firstly i newegg doesnt ship to australia so i cant get stuff that cheap so those prices are completely wrong. and some of the items chosen in parts picker is unnecessary. why did you select a CPU cooler when i already have a good quality cooler? same with the HDD, i already have two 1tb's, why the asus geforce 670 over the one i chose and why a 750w psu?
i asked for all suggestions to be backed up with reasons why.
