What do you think? I am on a budget ( no more then 1,300) Do you have any advice on changing anything? where to buy from? or if you know any sales right now or coming up on black Friday! ( I am in Canada by the way)
? Processor. I presume i5-3570K. You will need cooler for it, if you want to overclock. Suggest CoolerMaster Hyper 212Evo. GTX560Ti isn't bad GPU, but last generation, and getting a bit long in the tooth. Depends what you're paying for it, but current GTX660, or Radeon HD7850/70 are worth considering. You could probably get those, or even better with budget. Something like this, as core components. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks
Okay so i Didn't see that it was expiring soon, and was out of stock. I am probably not going to be able to get all the stuff until christmas so i will consider the msi 7850. I also am going to get a different power supplie? any suggestions? i heard the company that makes the one i picked out is not very good. How much watts would I need?
Yes, that will all be fine. I would recommend using a different mobo. The ASRock performs well, and is good value, but is a bit "qwerky" if this is a first build. The Gigabyte I suggested is honestly worth the small additional cost. You also don't NEED an additional fan.
Looks very good. Only area I would have slight doubt would be RAM. I "think" that RAM has adequate clearance, to cooler, but difficult to be 100% sure, as have not seen that model "in the flesh", that's why I normally recommend full low profile; takes any guesswork "out of the equation"
