Any regulars mine checking my build for improvements/suggestions. It's a gaming PC, and I wanted it to be very quiet (hence the case) and power efficient too. Keeping under 900 was a goal and so was including a ssd. Will be playing MMO's mostly but I tend to try most pc games. Thanks in advance.

I didn't see a cpu cooler you should get one for a k cpu. I would recommend getting a i5 3570k over the i5 2500k. Also if you're getting a asrock pro just get the pro3. You said you want to be power efficient the 7850 is a better card, more efficient and only costs a little more his 7850 $180 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Forgot to put cpu cooler on there, but there will be one. Might just take 7850, 21 watts less power and should runner cooler and quieter. Was thinking 2500k for better overclocking with less heat.

The heat with the i5 3570k @4.2 is just fine. Also the i5 3570k @4.2 will match a i5 2500k @4.6. No real need to go over 4.2 when overclocking except maybe for bragging rights.

I like this build but the case seems like it could be subpar compared to 550 for sound dampering and temp. Am I wrong?
Also the psu i picked is well rated and Gold certified. Do I need to go 750w to power this system you built? Efficiency and sound are important.

Edit: hard drive isnt in build because I have one.
