Hello all, it's my first time building a new PC for gaming, and I need some advice.


Approximate Purchase Date: this thanksgiving

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe



Here is my list so far:

CPU : Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz
GPU : SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100351VXSR Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16
Mobo : GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
RAM : CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Power : CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650M 650W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi Modular High Performance Power Supply
Case : NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case
CPU Cooler : COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
HDD : Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
SSD : Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)


Will a 650W power supply be sufficient?
Will the Mobo fit in the case?
Are there any better suited components for this build?
I need a monitor which can be rotated 90 degrees and has HDMI port, any suggestion?
Are there any problems or potential problems with this build?

Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks!

650 watts is more than enough

some of the build is overkill for your usage too .
A 3570K will game just as well
2 x4 gig of RAM is more than you need
The SSD is too small to use as a boot drive , so either buy a larger capacity unit , or set it up as a cache drive

and
white cases look funny with a black monitor , keyboard etc etc
but thats just my opinion
