  1. It will work together to answer your question, but what is your budget? Do you need a case? Do you need an OS? What is the computer used for..the parts are suggesting gaming. You could do a lot better on the PSU..Seasonic, Antec, XFX, Corsair are good names for the PSU. Try filling this out and we can help you more...

    It would all work togetherjust fine but you are missing couple of inmportant parts such as storage, optical drive and a case. I startes putting to gether a build based on what you provided on PCpartpicker.com. Personally I prefer Corsair or Seasonic PSU's myself but OCZ is generally ok, too. I would suggest you do some research on that PSU to be sure though. Here you go.

    so then could you suggest a corsair or seasonic for me?
  5. That is a nice build..but today, neweggs has that MOBO with free ram..for the same price
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293&cm_sp=DailyDeal-_-13-157-293-_-Product .. get it while it's good
  6. Here's a good Corsair PSU for your system: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W

    Or if you plan on SLI in the future then a 750Watt would be better: CORSAIR CX Series CX750 750W
  7. so with that suggested build how well would it run games like bf3, skyrim, arma2, and etc?
  8. so with the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with
    G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR FREE

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293 and
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231416

    could i remove the G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GAB

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231546
  9. Yes, you wouldn't need it, since you will get it free with the MOBO..save $40
  10. With that build, it would kick butt on those games. About the only thing you could improve would be to upgrade the graphics to a GTX 680, Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition or SLI a pair of GTX 670's. None of those upgrades would provide a substantial difference in a single monitor setup, however.

    Check out these benchmarks for Confirmation:
    GTX 670 vs. GTX 680
    GTX 670 vs. Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition
  11. It will play Skyrim on ultra for sure..Im not sure about BF3 or Arma2 on Ultra..I dont play those games. I have a very similar system and it maxes out Skyrim. There are a bunch of Youtube videos out there for the other games with the gtx670 you can check out tho.
  12. so last question i hope. so should i switch this in then

    EVGA 02G-P4-2680-KR GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130768

    and thank you guys so much for helping me like this
  13. If you can afford it..YES! if you are putting this much money into a system, I would suggest a SSD for your OS and a few games.. like a Samsung 120 GIG 840. It would be a nice add on for speed..not really help in games, but load times would be really fast.
  14. Best answer selected by Genomore.
  15. +1 larrym on the suggestion for an SSD. That would be the icing on the cake for this build. Personnally, I would go for a the fastest Graphics card on the planet as well if I could afford it (see my sig., I already got the fastest single GPU card). However with your budget spending an extra $100 for a marginal improvement would probably not be the best idea. Add in a good ~250GB SSD for the OS and your most important games and you're set. This includes a good one (You could also make do with a 128GB if you want to save a little cash).
