Will my build work for what I need?

Hey everyone, just a thanks for taking time to read all this if you do haha. I want to make sure this build I priced out would work well together mainly, never built a computer myself but I am also not totally illiterate when it comes to a desktop. I hope I organized everything so its simple to understand, Im totally open to suggestions and any help. I want the best I can get while also shopping smart. :D


Budget Range: I really don't want to reach past $1500, if I have to cut a few small corners to shave off some money then that's cool but I want a solid powerful build.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Ultra high gaming, hd quality video/online also, some multitasking, music storage, internet

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Everything NEW NEW

Do you need to buy OS: No, I have it

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I have everything picked out and on a wishlist on newegg.com

Location: Everett, WA

Parts Preferences: I prefer Intel and Nvidia because I know them, from what I have seen they do well. As far as everything else I know Asus isn't bad but I don't have a preference...

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: I want just 1 initial card but want the option open for SLI later

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200 or greater!

Additional Comments: I want to have an ssd for my OS so boot is super fast and Id like only key programs in it, I will have a 1TB HD for everything else. I would prefer not to liquid cool and want a system that is quiet and clean. I picked out a case which I will link below. I want a fast kick ass machine for gaming, dont need 3d.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Need a new computer!

More about will build work need
  1. With an i5 3570K and a GTX 670 there's not much you won't be able to do.
  2. If you want to do serious OC on CPU, you might need a CPU cooler, stock probably won't be enough.
  3. Looks good, you can change your PSU to a quality 650W and up the SSD a little bit. 90GB is a bit tight. I suggest the Samsung 830 or the OCZ Vertex 4.

    Also, you should get a cooler for overclocking. The Hyper 212 EVO would be a good choice.
