What do you guys think about this build?
I'll be using it for Guild Wars 2, Photoshop, and the usual stuff like internet browsing.


CASE:
Corsair Obsidian Series 800D Full Tower Gaming Case w/ 4x SATA Hot-Swap Drive Bays & Side-Panel Window

MOTHERBOARD:
[CrossFireX/SLI] ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Intel Z77 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ IRST, Lucid Virtu MVP, XFast Technologies, 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, 3x PCIe x16 (2 Gen3, 1 Gen2), 2x PCIe x1 & 2 PCI

HDD:
120GB Corsair Force GT Series SATA-III 6.0 Gb/s SSD - 555MB/s Read & 515MB/s Write (Single Drive)

MEMORY:
8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (Corsair Vengeance)

VIDEO:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card [+338] (EVGA Superclocked)

CPU:
Intel® Core™ i5-3570K 3.40 GHz 6MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1155

POWERSUPPLY:
750 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready

CASE_FAN:
Default case fans

FAN:
Corsair Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan (Single Enermax Enlobal
Silent High Performance 120MM Fan)

COOLANT:
High-Performance Coolant powered by Koolance

OVERCLOCK:
No Overclocking


PRICE = $1,567.00


In general I would like to know what you guys think and if I should change anything.
Right now my questions are:

1. Should I go with more fans? They have an option on the site to install the maximum amount your case can hold.
2. Also anti vibration mounts needed if so?
3. Dual fans for cooling system or is single fine?
4. I'm thinking my power supply might be overkill? 650w instead?


Thanks in advance!

I'd feel better if someone with more experience built it.

And what of my build. Any tips on that?

I'm not quite sure what you're getting at other than telling me I should build it myself...
How is the computer I'm referring to not a custom built computer?

i guess you are getting it done by cyberpowerpc.for the same price,you can build a more powerful pc on your own.
it's like tuning a gtr to beat veyron.

Thanks for the tip and I might just consider building it myself, but how's my hardware? Would you suggest any changes?

I'd like to run Guild Wars 2 on Max settings with 50+fps(preferably 70.)
As well, I'd like to keep my budget around 1500, going no more than 1700.

Well 60+ in gw2 is doable on a single 670 but its not gonna be at ultra settings at 1080, Everywhere you will find it dipping in certain areas down to like 30 ish but will still make you happy ill wager just set post pross down to med and check a few other setting down just a touch and you will see 100 + dipping to like 50ish... My friend has a 3930k with 2x680 and he was like wtf its not runing at 100 + an ive got 2x480 and mine still dips to 25 30 fps bith boxes are 3930k s running at 4.8

The tests I've seen suggest 670's perform better than that, but then again you might be right.

Would you suggest dual cards then? I wouldn't be opposed to that, however I'd like to stay under 1700.

Or maybe a good build to upgrade later to 2x 670's?

Dipping down to 30fps doesn't sound fun to me...

Great, thank you.

Now I'm curious, performance wise, how does the build you suggested differ from mine?

Also, how many case fans should I get? Maximum for the case?
And do I need dual or is single fans fine for a cooling system?

Thanks!

the build is suggested is cheaper and more powerful.stock fans of 400r are just fine.hyper 212 evo is a great cooler,no modifications required.

Thank you for the clarification!

Giving it more thought and research, I think I will be building it myself.

Just a few questions on your build suggestion:

CPU- Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core
CPU Cooler-Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing (is this really superior over the Corsair Hydro Series H60?)
Motherboard-Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H ATX LGA1155
Memory-G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
Storage-Samsung Spinpoint F4 2TB 3.5" 5400RPM
SSD-Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" SSD (is this faster/more reliable than the 120GB Corsair Force GT Series?)
Video Card-Asus GeForce GTX 670 2GB
Case-Corsair 400R ATX Mid Tower (is the case I was considering bad? Because I really like the styling of the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D Full Tower.)
Power Supply-Antec 750W ATX12V / EPS12V (what was wrong with the Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus?)
Optical Drive-LG GH24NS90 DVD/CD Writer

Thank you again! You've been a big help so far.

hyper 212 evo is one of the most(in fact most popular right now)popular cpu cooler for 1155 socket,it provides great cooling,less noisy,cheap and very reliable-
http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/cm_hyper212_evo...
where as hxx coolers have several issues,i can name a few-
noisy
pump failure
average cooling
high price
overall "not worth it"
samsung 830 series right now is one of the best SSDs out there for a reasonable price tag.very fast,reliable and great service.
800D is a great case but it's too expensive and definitely not the best choice for an aircooled system.400r is one of the best case in it's league-

both Antec HCG and TX750 V2 are great power supplies and perform identical but Antec HCG is cheaper ;)
