Honestly and dont take offence 1/10 it is a terrible gamer it's just entirely unbalanced

You didnt need a z77 board as you cant overclock that CPU a B75 or H77 would have been cheaper and suitable.

Graphics card is low end if you are playing at 1080p it's a basic card. As a gamer the machine is unbalanced gaming machines should spend all you can on the Graphics then build around that. All the fancy things like an SSD etc wont give better framerates and settings their cash would have been better served on the Graphics card.

PSU wattage is massive overkill

I did already order... but if something isnt right , i can always send back. and for the other person, the psu was on sale for 50 dollars so is it really overkill and for the MOBO, i understand im not gonna overclock, but its still ok for the cpu , correct?
