First gaming build Tags: Build Gaming Systems Last response: November 24, 2012 5:06 AM in Systems Share BMF96 November 24, 2012 4:17:32 AM Current build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/paDB The only things I have so far: 3570k CPU, OCZ agility 4 256gb, 27' 2560x1440 Crossover korean monitor The main things I'm wondering about: The motherboard: Someone recommended that one. I can pay a little bit more if needed. Any suggestions on a different one or if that one is good? Video Card: I am pretty set on the 7950, but I'm not sure which brand to get. Do you recommend a mid-size or full-size case? Do I need more than 550W or is that ok?

I'd get a low end 7970, if you can find one during Black Friday... in the next 55 minutes. I'd go with a mid-size. The NZXT gamma classic is a good budget offering. That'll be fine if you don't want two graphics cards in the future. If you do, go up to 750w. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>First gaming build> Related ressources: ForumFirst Time Gaming Rig Build Advice ForumFirst Gaming Build ForumCPU and GPU can't decide for a first time gaming build . please help ForumFirst Gaming PC Build ForumUpcoming First Time Gaming Build ForumI need opinions on my first build for gaming ForumNeed help build the first gaming pc ForumI'm gonna build my own gaming pc for the first time, need help.
