Thanks to the community I have selected the following parts for my computer:
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo)
Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Asus DVDRW Burner
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
Windows 7
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound
ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
Now that I am done selecting the parts all I have to do is wait until tomorrow to build it. I watched a youtube video and read a guide on how to build it but it didn't answer all of my questions like where do I plug in the case fans..etc Is their a guide you guys recommend? Is their a guide similar to my build?


P.S. I did select the right parts correct? :??:

This is a good guide for 1st timers:

And as always, something from Toms:

The guide aside, everything you picked should work well together. You probably don't need the AS5 thermal compound, since you are getting a new heatsink (212 Evo) which will have its own application of thermal compound, but it is up to you. It is nice to have some spare compound around incase you need to reinstall the cooler or adjust it.
