Hey guys, I'm about to buy parts to build my own gaming computer, but I'm not sure they'll all fit. I checked and the RAM fits the motherboard as well as the processor, but what I really want to know is if the power supply will fit, and if there's some reason that the motherboard shouldn't fit either.

Also, I'm about $300 under budget with these, so if anyone has any suggestions for upgrades, I'd appreciate it if you'd share.


Here are the specs:

This is for gaming?

Kill the i7. The only difference between it and an i5 is hyperthreading, which actually lessens the performance in some game.

The i5-3570k is better for gaming, and cheaper, to boot.

If you want to overclock, buy a Hyper 212 + or EVO heatsink.

Consider whether or not you need a blu-ray drive. That just seems silly.

You don't have a graphics card at all - what's up with that?

Buy a 128 GB Samsung 830 or OCZ Vertex 4 SSD. It's worth it.


Now then. It seems like you just went for the most expensive parts you could, and could use a little more research as to what parts are really the best for gaming. You could build a $5000 computer, and it would be NO better at gaming than a $1500 computer.

Sorry about that, this computer loads pages like tar rolls down a hill on a cold day. I was shopping on NewEgg and the videocard recently went out of stock, but it's there anyway.

On another note, will the power supply fit? Or is there any way of knowing?
