This is my first PC build and I have come up with a draft rig after some research. I will be using this for gaming primarily and am trying to stick to around the £1000 mark. It is just under that at the moment. I want a capable and reliable system with good upgradeability. Any advice on my choices so far? Much appreciated.
Asus P8Z77-V DELUXE Z77 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard
Looks great bro only thing i change is get a i5-3570k for gaming i7 is not of any benefit in gaming and unless your planing to run four video cards i get the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO other then that your good.
Downgrade the i7 to the i5 3570K since your only gaming.
Id get the P8Z77 Pro instead of Deluxe.
Replace the GPU with a 7950/670/7970.
Bad PSU. Get one from Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, Silverstone, XFX and PC&P. 550W if you will only run one GPU. SLI/Crossfire in the future, get 750W.
Get the WD Caviar Blue, its faster than the Green drive.
Edit: saw the PSU was a Silent Pro, dont mind my comment on PSUs lol.
212 is sufficient cooling I would take it all day every day over the cheap liquid closed loops others suggested.
120GB SSD for super fast loading OS and games
1TB storage drive for all your porno/files
Kept the case you chose as I guess you selected that due to liking it
I run a nearly identical build myself and I honestly think you wont do any better in that price range on that budget. The rig above will max out anything right now at stock speeds, it will easily Overclock in the future to meet demands and you can toss in another GTX670 for SLi sometime far down the line.
