Need advice on ~1200 dollar PC Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: December 8, 2012 6:37 AM in Systems Share zailiner December 8, 2012 1:15:27 AM PC purpose: High end gaming, study, internet surfing. I am purchasing from PC case gear. CPU: Intel Core i5 3750k $229 GPU: Gigabyte Radeon HD7870 $249 MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Heard LOTS of good things about this mobo $129 CPU cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO $35 PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 620W Modular HCG-620M I'm not too sure on my PSU. Is the wattage too low? Is it overkill? Could I get a better deal? Is it still fine with OC'ing? $115 RAM: Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B 2*4GB DDR3 $46 Storage: Western Digital WD Black 500GB $89 OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSD $129 Case: CoolerMaster CM 690 II Advanced Black & White edition $125 I know it's a hefty price, but I'd like to stick to it if possible. Total: $1146 I'm trying to keep the price as low as possible, but I don't want to cheap out ANYWHERE. I'm also hunting for a ~150 dollar HDMI capable monitor around 23 inches. If you could suggest some that would be great. Thanks for your time. More about : advice 1200 dollar zailiner December 8, 2012 6:05:18 AM No replies yet? Bump.
