I have set up a shopping list for all the components i will need to build my first gaming computer, and i wanted to check that these are all compatible and good enough to be a high-end gaming rig.
Cooler master storm trooper case
Corsair 850w power supply
16gb gskill ripjaws ram
ASUS rampage IV formula motherboard
2 120mm front fans, 1 140mm rear fan, 1 200mm top fan
Intel i5-3570k processor
Galaxy geforce GTX 680 4gb
ASUS 24x DVD burner
128gb ocz vertex ssd
I don't plan on doing any overclocking, but i don't know if the stock fans are enough or if i should get extra. There are 2 120mm slots on the top and bottom, so if i need them i can install them.
The stock fans would be fine if you're not OCing. CM cases tend to be great at cooling.
I hope that's the Vertex 4.
+1 on the 670. The 680 is a very overpriced card, it performs relatively close to the 670.
+1 on the 8gb of RAM as well. You don't need 16 for gaming, 8gb is actually plenty already.
500-550w PSU if you're using only 1 GPU. 650w if you're planning to add another in the future.
