you should use http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/ and put all your parts in that and make sure they all work together + id like to know what ur budget is and what ull be using your computer for might be able to help even if im not an expert :)

Everything fits but there's no point to a B75 motherboard with an unlocked CPU. Get rid of one or the other depending if you'll be overclocking or not.

I've never heard of New Vantage PSUs as well, might wanna reconsider more reputable brands or risk frying your components.

Well Asus homepage say that I still can overclock my CPU. But I think i should I? For hard gaming is more then enough anyways.
About PSU if possible could you check in eBay please. Because I can't share link typing on phone. It's looks decent PSU.

October 11, 2012 9:52:35 AM

For the PSU stick with these brands XFX, Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, OCZ, PC power and Cooling

Your PSU choice is crap literally there are no other words to decribe that PSU but crap. Lights and a paintjob do not make it a "decent PSU".

found pcu its : ACE 600W Black PSU Power Supply with 12cm Red Fan
October 11, 2012 10:09:03 AM

well i already got a case with psu i might buy different psu
but case is good by review
October 11, 2012 10:13:20 AM

thats funny some peolpe say it good same say its crap!
October 11, 2012 10:18:46 AM

I'd ask what review as I can say CIT have never actually made a good case or PSU, neither have winpower, ace, ezpower, powercool or any of those e-bay cowboy special brands...... all they do is deliver a fraction of the power they claim and then frazzle out once they short warranty ends.

But anyway a case is a case if you have it it will work as a case I just can't stress enough to get a better PSU

If you want to OC properly you need a z77 board like this

http://www.cclonline.com/product/78339/GA-H77-D3H/Mothe...

also ensure you get this version of that RAM its low profile otherwise your cooler will not fit properly

http://www.cclonline.com/product/61774/CML8GX3M2A1600C9...

If you dont want the motherboard then just get a 3570 not the K version.

i have these ram

and i got mobo already.
so what psu i can get around 40-50 pounds?

and what wrong with board? reviews are good supports everything just matx.

and its have overclocking option as well. and i still can take K version.

and do i ned overclocking anyways? i thing pieces are good enough even for high gaming without overclock

Thats a good PSU in your budget it supplies MORE than enough power for your build. That 650W you linked first probably doesnt even supply 400W in reality.

Your board is not bad it's just not the kind of board that you use if you want to heavily overclock your CPU

With this in mind you can save some money getting a non K version i5.You can also get a smaller cooler if your not overclocking

first of all do i need overclock my pc if im gonna use it only for games and movies, surfing?

OCZ Technology 500W CoreXStream

http://www.cclonline.com/product/46152/CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8...

and that cpu cooler

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0068OI7T8/ref=oh_de...


so ace psu i can throw out? ;D

and in the end is it high gamingg performance pc?

thank you for your help what would i do ;) 
October 11, 2012 11:13:29 AM

Stick with the PSU I linked the one you linked is a model that was nt so good and has been out of production for years.... it must have been festering in ther stock room a long long time.

Stick the ACE PSU on ebay someone will buy it.

Overclocking is a good option to have but its not needed the CPU at stock speeds won't bottleneck that graphics card.

Your Motherboard has 2 RAM slots the 212 will overhang at least the 1st slot, with low profile RAM thats ok but with yours having tall heatsinks it means it won't fit. Looking at a photo of your motherboard the TX-3 I linked wont fit either. If you dont overclock I suggest you use the stock cooler or find a aftermarket that wont cover the RAM slots.

You are making a Rig I would define as upper mid range performance, different people define differently. I define High Performance as multi card SLi setups of top end cards along with custom cooled highly clocked CPU's all on top shelf parts, that then runs a multi monitor setup at maximun settings in anything getting 120FPS......... no I dont have one but I would love one! Your build will last you long enough and game at good settings

October 11, 2012 11:23:19 AM

damn i have cpu cooler and ram already :( 

but i check in Google everywhere people saying it will be fine :( 
is stock cooler will be enough? to cool down and fit in?
could you give me some CPU who would fit so i could put my ram in it without hassle!
well no im not building monster
basically what i need is max out graphics on 19 inch monitor without multiplayer.

and what better to change ram or stay with stock cooler?

October 11, 2012 11:34:16 AM

If you dont overclock stay with stock cooler it will work


That is your motherboard, I have drawn a rough red box that shows what the 212 will likely do. Now thats not measured it's an estimation as you see if it does cover that 1st slot a little as I am sure it will the heatsinks on your RAM will get in the way. Best way is try when you have the cooler and motherboard see if it blocks but I will bet I'm right here.

If you dont overclock and the 212 does not fit just use the stock cooler it will suffice
October 11, 2012 11:47:13 AM

The height of the pipes means it clears ram which on smaller Motherboards can be an issue. Since this was the problem with the install I undertook today, I'll add the proviso that I swapped the fan around so it sucked through the fins rather than blew, as it would have been a tight fit against the 'tall' finned ram fitted.

what about that method?
October 11, 2012 11:49:33 AM

If you have Corsair Vengeance RAM in the closest slot to the cpu, it will fit horizontally but you will have to move the fan up about 1.5 cm. that does NOT decrease performance. same with Dominator RAM.

When you install this cooler you got 2 options : 1. Paralel with the ram slots - that will not block the last ram slot , 2 . Horizontal - like i did it - just because i have a huge 22 cm fan on my side panel case . It works the same any way you place it as long as you keep in mind the airflow of the case - and that you must have 1 exaust fan close to it ( either the back or the top side ).

and is it fit in case?
October 11, 2012 11:50:12 AM

one more thing is gtx 660 ti is capable to this mobo?
October 11, 2012 11:51:49 AM

You'll have to try to see but your RAM has very tall sinks (its adding another 50% nearly to the RAM's height), now as you said above if only a fan covers the ram slot yes you can move the cooler fan and you're good for launch but if the heatsink itself covers the slot then you're out of luck. I am pretty sure the heatsink will cover the slot (by the tiniest amount) in your case.
October 11, 2012 11:52:04 AM

Yes the 660ti is fine for that mobo
October 11, 2012 11:52:14 AM

now only one problem left PSU well in same webpages people keep saying ace is good in same its blowing? so its like 10 vs 7 ;DDD
October 11, 2012 11:55:15 AM

Trust me ACE is crap only buy OCZ, XFX, Seasonic, Antec or corsair PSU's. I don;t say this to make you spend more its important a bad PSU can be catastrophic. Reviews on sites selling it or from random people mean nothing. Places sell these junk PSU's with very big profit margins (bigger than they make on good PSU's) so they are very keen to sell alot of them... they win anyway if the PSU goes bang you will likely buy your new hardware from them again.

Or put this way if you had a Ferrariwould you run it on petrol you know is watered down?

Your CPU has an unlocked multiplier, so yes it can be OC'd; but you NEED a motherboard that SUPPORTS overclocking. This would be the z68, z75, and z77 chipsets.
October 11, 2012 12:29:51 PM

true ;) 
well could you then suggest me some good budget mobo so i can fit everything in?
msi or asrock? i dont know nothing about them z77 is better in atx?
and is that cpu cooler will fit in mid tower?

October 11, 2012 12:41:00 PM

MSI Z77A-G41 what about this one?
October 11, 2012 12:55:02 PM

The MSI can overclock, yes.
October 11, 2012 1:03:44 PM

i think to stick with this one.
MSI Z77A-G41 Motherboard LGA1155 Intel Z77 ATX SATA Gigabit LAN


so over all this build will work fine?
October 11, 2012 1:08:17 PM

All I said is it can overclock.
Check the board's features and if you're satisfied with it, then by all means buy it. :) 
October 11, 2012 1:24:04 PM

but in end if im not doing overclocking i can stay to

asus P8B75-M LX

is it make big difference in gaming if im gonna overclock if im not connecting sli ir i dont have 4 screens just simple pc.

because i got asus matx board already so should i spend another 60 pounds for new mobo?

only problem basically is to fit cpu cooler on it. but i checked you tube there is some solutions by turning it horizontal.

October 11, 2012 1:32:22 PM

in the end i choose one of these

ASUS P8Z77-M

MSI Z77A-G41

witch one?

or stay on

asus P8B75-M LX
October 11, 2012 6:21:17 PM

If you have no plans to Overclock or SLi etc then stick with board you have
October 11, 2012 7:17:27 PM

thx u ;) 
well last question about psu i found couple psus what i can afford

OCZ OCZ-ZS550W-UK 550W ZS Series 550W 80+ Bronze PSU with 135mm Fan & single +12V Rail


OCZ Technology 500W CoreXStream Series Power Supply



Antec VP450P 450W PSU - 120mm Fan 4x SATA 1x PCI-E


Corsair CMPSU-500CXV2UK Builder Series CX500V2 - 80 Plus Certified Power Supply

is 450-500w gonna be enough?
October 11, 2012 7:37:35 PM

They are enough I would take the corsair or the OCZ ZS series. The corexstream is a very very old model dont get that.
October 11, 2012 7:42:11 PM

what about corsair
October 11, 2012 7:45:30 PM

OCZ 500W ModXStream Pro Power Supply

and this?

you see in states pc parts are very cheap comparing to uk :( 

so 500w will be enough?
October 11, 2012 7:50:37 PM

I am not in the States I'm in the UK too :) 

The 500W modxstream is again an older model and not so great

I would take either the OCZ ZS series you listed or the corsair they are both good units that provide plenty for your needs.
October 11, 2012 8:39:40 PM

ooo i see ;DDD quiet close ;)  im from brighton

ok thx you a lot for all your help


one more thing about ssd is it worth buying if i usual user. its makes any difference in gaming except loading time?
October 11, 2012 8:42:08 PM

Just loading times it's nice to have but not really essential.
October 12, 2012 6:01:20 AM

Well I can live without that. ;D
Actually yesterday I check one of my mates pc and he have matx with similar CPU cooler and it fits only he's ram is bit stick in with degree if you know what I mean but all works fine.
October 12, 2012 6:24:14 AM

Can I ask you one more thing cant decide gonna buy 660ti but witch better gygabite or Asus version?
October 12, 2012 7:22:25 AM

Depends on the exact model some are overclocked a little in the factory, generally speaking the one that has the highest clock speed numbers for the GPU (MHz) is going to be a little faster. The amount won't be alot though.
