First Off I would like to give special thanks to jrgong and TheBigTroll earlier for helping me with components for my first time build.

I just chose parts based on their recommendations. It would be nice if anyone can look at the list to see If anything needs changing before I order the parts!

Case: $120

CPU + MOBO: $340
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=76818&vpn=BX8063...

PSU: $90 after rebate
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=62224&vpn=P1750B...

cooler: $30
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=64385&vpn=RR-212...

SSD: $100
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=69936&vpn=VTX4-2...

HDD: $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: 16GB (2x8) 1600MHz : $60 after rebates
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=76779&vpn=PV316G...

GPU: $220 after rebates:
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=69829&vpn=FX787A...

Total: $1,100


This is my first time Building a computer and If an extra $100 can make the build much better in the long run then I'm willing to do that.

thank you very much all

Every thing looks good, but I would scale down to 8 gigs of ram. 8 is more than enough unless you're going to be doing some heavy video editing.

What about an optical drive and good cooling fans?

Ditch the OCZ SSD and get something more reliable like Crucial, Intel, or Samsung. They are just as fast and won't keep you guessing at when you will have a failure.

I have extra optical drives

and good cooling fans can be added later.


Any suggestions on good cooling fans with maybe Blue LED?
