Gaming PC Build

Hey guys,

I'm an Australian who has decided to build my own PC for gaming. Being Australian, I am unable to order my parts from NewEgg and, since I cannot ship due to personal reasons, I must buy all of my parts from a PC shop in my hometown.

Here is their website:

With a budget of $1350, here is my build:

- XFX Radeon HD 7950 Core Edition
- Intel CPU Core i5 3570K - LGA 115
- Asus P8Z77-V Intel Mainboard
- XFX ProSeries 850W Core Edition 80+ Bronze
- Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Low Profile Vengeance
- 20CM Blue NZXT Fan - NZXT Phantom Series - White
- Pioneer DVD/CD Burner (DVR-220LBKS)
- Seagate Barracuda 1TB
- Acer 23" S230HLBD BLACK LED

If you guys could provide me with better alternatives, changes and general criticism on the build it would be much appreciated.

Thanks guys :D

  1. I think 850W is too much. you could save more money buy buying I think 650w is enough. and then go with 7970 with the money you saved(I think you need to add a little?). I love the casing. :D
  2. I've edited it a bit and come up with this:
    - XFX Radeon HD 7950 Double Dissipation
    - Intel CPU Core i5 3570K - LGA 115
    - Asus P8Z77-V Intel Mainboard
    - XFX ProSeries 750W Core Edition 80+ Bronze
    - Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Low Profile Vengeance
    - 20CM Blue NZXT Fan - NZXT Phantom Series - White
    - Pioneer DVD/CD Burner (DVR-220LBKS)
    - Seagate Barracuda 1TB
    - Acer 23" S230HLBD BLACK LED
  3. Well, do you plan to run 2 cards in the future?
  4. No, not really
  5. You only really need a ~500W or so power supply. The XFX 550W is a good choice.
