Solved

I think I have come to my final version of my first build

After a few weeks of fine tuning my build, I think I found what I would like to buy. Many people have helped me select parts and such, thank you to you all. I will be buying this setup soon, and with an additional 140mm fan I will add to the top. It's funny how I started off basing my build on an A10-5800k, to an i5-3570k, to this. But I believe it is my best bang for my buck. If your wondering where my HDD is, well I have it already. It's a Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex that I have been using on my old PC since my internal crapped out (600GB left of a 1TB total). I will simply take off the SATA to USB adapter and stick it in a HDD bay. Not sure how or if I am going to be able to mount it though...

  1. Get a different SSD. 60GB won't get you very far these days. You will need at least a 128GB.

    I had the 128GB Vertex 4 in my cart before, but I had to compromise to keep the price inside my budget (~$1000) and so since it will only be holding the OS and a 2 or 3 games, I don't need 128GB, even though IF i had the money it would be nice :)
  3. ^+1 g-unit. You'll find it's worth the extra money.
    Well, yes, you'll be able to hold your data inside 60gb, but IMO it'll be more trouble than it's worth.
  4. You still don't want an OCZ Sandforce-controller drive.
    For $64, get this Plextor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820249023
    I do agree with G-unit though; if you can, get this $100 128GB Crucial M4: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148442 as you WILL use the space.

    Alright, got rid of the extra top fan I was going to get, and the Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Paste I was going to get. But it isn't too big of a deal because I have heard that Noctua grease is pretty good. The fan I was going to get probably wasn't going to help too much, either. With that Crucial M4, I am $19 over budget but from the way you guys see it the extra space is worthless. Any other change suggestions?

    I'd also recommend the Samsung 830: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147163

    Unless it's faster, I might as well save $9 since I am already over budget.
