Hello, this is my first build and I've tried to pick the parts by myself but I tend to go overboard. I'm not a very techy person, so i don't care much about overclocking or anything similar to that, so I'm hoping this forum will help me out. I am mostly gonna use this Pc for Gaming mostly from steam (Portal 2,Fable 3, Battlefield 3, Assasins creed.....etc) and school work, I need a pretty nice looking monitor with good resolution and speakers. NEEDs to have HDMI port and at least 6 USB slots. Also extra parts like third party fans would be nice to include or anything else that might help keep the Pc together. So hopefully you guys can help me out with this build, thanks. :hello:

CPU: Intel i5 3450 ($195)

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme3
(Has 6 USB) ($120)

GPU: MSI GTX 660 ($195 w/ rebate)

PSU: Seasonic 620w (On sale for $89)

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjwas X ($29 w/ promo code EMCJNJD34)

Boot Drive: OCZ Vertex 4 64GB ($80)

Optical Drive: Asus 24X DVD Burner ($20)

Case: I'd never exceed over $100 for a case. Since case is pure personal preference, I don't have a suggestion for you.

Monitor: Again monitors are somewhat preference. Any 24" 1080p monitor should be fine

TOTAL: Should come out to around $830 w/o a monitor.


SLI/CrossfireX is using 2 or more GPU's on 1 system.

I vote Excella's build, but you could get a 7950 and i3-3220. Probably getting a bit unbalanced though. I'd suggest a case with front panel USB3.0.
