Like i said this is my first build and just want some feedback. Extremely excited lol. Hope its gonna be nice
It looks great! For a gaming build it's about as good as you are going to get without an SLI setup.
I only have two concerns/recommendations-
1st, this is a pretty high end build. You're system will be much more responsive if you throw in a 60GB boot SSD. Compared to the total cost of the build it's not too much of an added cost ($50 if you're lucky). Toms hardware publishes a good SSD buying guide every once and a while, if you want to read that.
2nd, you should probably get an aftermarket CPU cooler- the stock ones tend to be pretty junky... though, since you're not overclocking, you are probably fine if you don't want to spend money on it. If you do decide to get one I recommend the hyper 212 evo. It's a really good cooler for the price (pretty quiet too)
Also, how much RAM did you buy? What timings and speed?
I would have just gone with an i5 3570k. Almost no gaming performance increase from the 3770 for the extra $80. Also on the 2133 ram, I have corsair vengeance 2133 ram, and every time I run it at 2133 on the XMA profile settings for that speed, I get blue screens everywhere. At 1600, no blue screen. Hopefully you have better luck. Also, I would recommend getting a usb 3.0 external hd and a large ssd instead of getting that storage drive. I eliminated my internal storage hard drive and have a large ssd. Loving the switch. Good luck though.
