Alright, I am a console player. Now, I want to join the PC Community :D  . I'm really excited to build a PC, since this shall be my first time, but! I need your opinion. How would this build work out for you (I plan on playing BF3, Skyrim, Left 4 Dead 1/2, Borderlands 1/2, GTA 4, Diablo 3, LoL, WoW, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, etc. on High-Max settings.)

I like what you're going with here. Only problem I have is the keyboard. I have tried the K60 before, and it really didn't feel like something I wanted to buy. Anyways, what are your thoughts on the Cooler Master HAF 922?

I would not recommend that power supply either. Not a very reputable brand.

Also, if you don't plan to overclock, you can save money by going with a non-overclocking build.


I do plan on overclocking, down the road.

Then keep the overclocking stuff. Overclocking is fun :)

i guess you dont like red switches then. ill suggest the coolermaster quickfire pro then

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

has brown switches. a good balance between the extremely tactile blues and the quietness of the reds


Yeah, it looks like these switches will be handy, considering I'm not living alone so my typing won't be bothering anybody too much.

Thanks for the reassurance! At first I thought that if I was going to overclock that my build would short out and Murphy's Law would be flying everywhere. Now that I realize that if I know what I'm doing it, overclocking can be fun :D
