Hi, I am building a new build and I have chosen my parts but since this is my first build I would like someone with more knowladge about builds than me to make sure I am building a good PC. I am aiming for a high end gaming PC
Not on this list because I am buying form another retailer is the Bitfenix Colossus Case and 5 bitfenix spectre pro fans 2 for the h100i so the h100i would be in push pull with the stock fans and spectre pros and the other 3 are for the case. Thank you I just really want to be on the mark with my build because I am only a high school student that is working part time at mcdonalds and after alot of saving I finally have enough for my build help is much appreciated.
Not to be mean, but that build is kinda bad. Not in terms of performance. But in terms of price/performance. The H100 sucks, I will tell you right now, all the Corsair Hydro series or any closed loop water cooling system for that matter, SUCKS. The H100i is great, no doubt, but for the price, a few degrees isn't worth the extra $60... You're better off getting something that will have a performance effect on your system.
For pure gaming, and even most multi-threads, the i7 3770K is overkill. The GTX 680 sucks for the price/performance. The 7970 especially with more recent drivers at 1ghz (most of them come at this clock @ stock) kill the 680. PSU is overpriced and more than needed. Motherboard is overpriced and underperforms indefinitely, it really isn't worth its value at all. A $130 Asrock Extreme4 Z77 or Extreme3 would perform pretty much the same and save you A LOT of money. Most Z77 boards can clock an i5 3570K at 5ghz easy.
SSD is kind of overpriced, you could get a 120GB for about $90 like the Kingston 3K and it'll perform just the same if not better in benchmarks as well. Memory is overpriced, most 16GB kits only cost like $60.
