I am new to building my own computers therefore I need help of the pro community here)
The system will be used for gaming and I intend to overclock it a bit.
Could someone check the components for compatibility? Thank you)
Here are the specs:
ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe
Intel Core™ i7-3770K
MSI GeForce GTX680
Corsair Vengeance Black 2х8 DIMM DDR3 16GB 16000
WD Caviar Black 1000 Гб + SSD Corsair GS 240GB
Pioneer SATA BDR-207EBK, Blu-Ray ReWriter
Cooler Master CM 690 2 Advanced USB 3.0 version
I am planning to build a system that will last me for a couple of years. So any help is appreciated.
If money is no problem, it all looks nice. However, if you want to save some money, you could go to a 3570K instead of the i7. Really no gaming performance benefit with the i7. The PSU you chose is very nice, but overkill unless you plan to add another GPU later on. Don't forget an OS if you need one. Happy gaming!
I am going to add another GPU later on exactly like you said, so I guess I will be needing that. I will reconsider the i7. Thank you for the reply)
Yeah I'd definitely second the i5. You could also drop to a GTX 670 - you'd save about $100 there and there's not enough of a performance difference between the two cards to really notice. With the money saved add a good 128 - 256GB SSD to the build.
