Hello guys,

This is my first post on this forum. This will be the first time I build a pc on my own. It will be mainly used for gaming and video rendering.

I don't need a monitor since I've already got one. Any advice would be appreciated.

I am thinking something along the lines of this for me, might be a little cheap for that budget as I need to get a monitor in the same budget:

- Full Tower (Without PSU) CM Storm STRYKER [SGC-5000W-KWN1] Black-White
- COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M700 RS-700-AMBA-D3 700W Power Supply
- SSD (Solid State Drive) 2.5" 180GB Sata3 Corsair [CSSD-F180GB3-BK] Force Series (550/520MB/s)
- HDD Internal 3.5" 2TB SATA3 7200rpm Seagate SV35 Series [ST2000VX000]
- CPU/Processor Intel S1155 i7-3770 Quad Core (3.5GHz/8M/22nm/77w/Integrated Graphics 4000)
- Desktop DDR3 Ram 16GB Kit (4x4GB) 1600MHz Corsair [CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9G]
- ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS
- DVD-Rewriter Internal 5.25" SATA Samsung [SH-222BB] (22x/OEM with Software) Black

Please anyone feel free to advise me if you think I could improve it without increasing the price too much :)

Change the power supply to xfx/seasonic
Get the plain p8z77 or the z77 pro.
Get a 24x writer from lite on/ asus.
