First build so far..

So I decided to start my first ever pc build. I was wondering what everybody thought of my build so far. I haven't bought the MOBO or the GPU yet as I still have questions. Here is what i have so far:

Case: Corsair 400r
PS: Corsair builder series 600cx
Storage: WD blue 1tb @7200
Memory: Kingston 8gb HyperX 1600
CPU: i5-3570k
CPU Cooler: Cooler master 212 EVO
Optical: ASUS dvd/cd drive

Is this a decent setup? I will be buying a mobo next and was wondering whether the ASRock z77 pro3 would be adequate? Any thoughts or suggestions about this build would be appreciated.

  1. Looks like a good mild gaming PC.. I might would go with a little bit better board maybe a extreme4 or pro4 but still none the less goo build so far. Power Supply is ok quality. But Yea everything looks good so far!
  2. Yea, I'm leaning toward the extreme4. The extra $30 seems worth it.
  3. Are you planning to overclock?
  4. I suppose so, that's what all the cool kids are doing. I really have no experience with doing it. That said, I think I will.
