Advice on new build

November 20, 2012 7:07:03 PM

Hey TH,

Finalizing a new pc I am building figured I would see what you guys thought. The computer is for my brother and will be used in his dorm room. He will do light gaming and a lot of photo editing on it, things like lightroom, multiple photshop displays, and so forth.

Case: Lian Li micro ATX PC9F - 90$
Power Supply: Some Antec Silver 750W supply I had -80$
CPU: i5-3570K -200$
Cooler: scythe mugan -30$
Mobo: EVGA Z77 FTW -190$
GPU: EVGA GTX 660 ti 2GB (maybe an ati alternative?) -280$
RAM: 2x4Gb G.Skill 1600 -45$
2XHDD: Samsung spin point 1Tb 7200rpm -80$
Display: samsung 27" LED display 1ms 1920x1200 - 220$


What do you guys think? are these good options/ combos? Some of the stuff I can cancel because I had it around to use but over all do you guys think this is a good build for his uses? Think I can cut any thing to save? I figured the mobo would be a good upgrade platform and I have measured the case out and it all fits. (pretty tight though)

Thanks for all the views and posts.
