well i am building a new pc to replace my old one and im thinking on getting all this

CASE: Cooler master 430 black elite http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: 16gb (2x8gb) corsair vengeance at 1600mhz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hard Drive: 1tb seagate 7200rpm basic stuff...

Mobo: Asus P8Z68-v pro/gen3 PCIe ready http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

VGA: EVGA GeForce GTX660 Ti 2GB GDDR5 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: antec high current gaming series 900w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: Intel I5 3570K @3.4 GHz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU Cooler: cooler master Hyper 212 EVO with an extra 120mm fan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

so i was maybe wondering if there would be any problem with this specs i already got the ram memories, the hard drive and the case so they are out, i was wondering if there would be any problem with the Graphic card with that kind of processor

i am looking for a build that lasts at least 3 to 4 years

any help will be really appreciated

thanx everyone!

Here are some changes that will help with performance and cost about the same.

mobo - asrock z77 extreme4 $120 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007KTY4A6/?tag=pcpapi-20

gpu - evga gtx 670 ftw $340 after rebate http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

psu - xfx pro750 xxx edition $85 after rebate http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=62224&vpn=P1750BNLG9&m...

That's a good mobo that will let you easily oc the cpu and you can add a second gtx 670 later for a good sli setup. The xfx psu is very good and at a great price now that same psu is $125 on newegg. It also will be more than enough for your system even if you add a second gtx 670 later.

What is the budget here? For starters I'd change the motherboard to the aforementioned Z77 Extreme 4 since you can't pair a Z68 board without a BIOS update. If you're buying a good rig I'd pay more for a better case than an Elite 430. Pay more and get a Corsair 300R or Antec 100, or pay a bit more and get something like a Phantom 410. Also that power supply is overkill for a single GPU setup. I'd heavily suggest this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The thing is that I already got the csse as a present from a relative and I decided to build in base of it I will be putting it 4 more ciller master fans of 120mm I was thinkg abiut remplacing the mobo when I heard about the update it could save some bother I wouldnt mind expending a little more for a good mobo though

The thing with the psu is that I used the page of asus of wattage calculator and it give a minimum of at least 750w so I though of 900 in case I wanted to add another graphic card, and I though of the gtx 660 ti before the 670 because from a little research I found out that there where no much of a difference between them

Im going with a budget of 1200 - 1500 getting out the case, the hard drive and the ram memory since I already have them

That Asus wattage calculator doesn't take into account real world wattage usage - only perceived wattage usage based on poor quality power supplies . It also hasn't been updated in a long time as it doesn't list NVIDIA 6XX and Radeon 7XXX cards. I think the wattage calculator on PC Part Picker is far more accurate.

All right so i used PC part picker and. Told me a total of 500w of use (w/o monitor, keyboard, fans and such) now i realize ig the calculator was right , that it was indeed an overkill, thank you very much I will consider an psu according to that

Also i've been considerong this mobo: Asus p8z77-v pro http://newegg.com/Product?itemNumber=N82E16813131819
Since it does supports 2-way sli and it is more fitted with the style that i want my case to have, also i looked that this mono it's very good to oc and it's popular among users and other gamers

Yeah that will work but it's kind of an expensive motherboard. The Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 and Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H are $50 less and they have the ability for 2-way SLI.
