I have started a new build since my other gaming computer is on its way out.

The new build consists of:

Mobo: MSI z77a-G41

Processor: i5 3570k

PSU: OCZ ModXStream 700w modular PSU

GPU: Nvidia Geforce gtx 560ti (1gb)

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb 1600mhz

Optical Drive: Asus 24x

HDD: Toshiba 1 TB 7,200 rpm

Case: Diablotek EVO mid tower ATX

Monitor: Acer G226HQL 21.5"


This will be my first time building a computer and would appreciate feedback on this build. Thanks :)

Have you purchased any of the components yet? Diablotek is a brand to be avoided at all costs (pretty much everything they make is absolute garbage), and the 560TI isn't worth purchasing anymore - the Radeon 7850 and 7870 are far better GPUs in that price range.

What is your budget? I could suggest a better system if I knew that.

My budget for this build is $850-900. The 560ti I can get for half off and get a good deal on it ( not saying that the cards you chose are bad.) What other case would you suggest? It would be nice to have fans already installed, but not necessary. Thanks :)

One last question, What fans would you recommend for the corsair 300r case? Thanks so much for the help man


Well that's kind of one question I leave out in the open, you should read that article I posted earlier.
