built a new computer for 1000$ for the need of something that would be able to run the games i wanted without giving out in 30 mins of gameplay. so i put this setup together and want to know if everything looked good.

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Gpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Cpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Hard drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I added some extra tinkering parts for myself since im not much of a person to oc.

Fan monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
120mm fan: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
200mm fan: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
wireless usb adapter: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Hdmi cable: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Just wanted to know if this is any good and if i need to switch any parts around. would appreciate any constructive comments.

Best solution

this is pretty much all you need. no need for extra fans since the standard ones are enough and good

dont use wifi if possible. if you must, get a internal adaptor and get one that is dual band for lower latency

fan controllers are useless if all the fans inside are quiet

it will get you 5-8 more fps in games and overall better results in nearly every benchmark

Intel is better for good reasons, and in the future an i5 3570k will easily outlast an AMD Phenom II X4 or FX-81xx chip. if you dont have the money for an i5 now, u can buy a pentium or celeron untill you scrap up enough to grab an i5. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $50 Dual core on the Sandy Bridge arch, better then an older AMD Callisto dual core budget gaming CPU if you ask me.

lol, i would pick the 965 over a FX-81xx, less power, and still a nice overclocker. They also $50 cheaper, but Intel makes a better chip. Look at this: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/102?vs=406 That is not the celeron, but that chip is $63 on Newegg and it trades blows with your AMD chip. It is also better in single threaded performance, and has less power consumption.

whats the difference between an h77 and z77? I'm looking at a z77 because of usb 3.0 but not really considering it for the 40$ difference if they are nearly the same board

my board was matx. the board you chose is atx. both will allow for installation of a cooler but you arent overclocking give the 3450 has no capability to do so
