PC Build

Alright, so from my work and Christmas I saved up a little bit of money to get a gaming PC. I thought I'd try and pick out the parts myself and build it. I've put PCs together before, but this is the first time I've ever picked out my own parts and I'm not that knowledgeable when it comes to compatibility. I was hoping that I could post my choices here and get an opinion on the compatibility, just to double check before I order anything.

Parts:
Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197
Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131842
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116506
Power Supply - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020
Hard Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185
Graphics Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202021
RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145345

Hopefully that's all good and I don't make myself look like a complete idiot ^^ Thanks for your time.

  1. whats ur budget
  2. Looks fairly good, although I did not check everything because having to click on all those links is cumbersome, next time put your build together on pcpartpicker.com , it keeps track of compatibility fairly well automatically for you, but it cannot hurt to double-check it here. It can create a text output with links of all the parts you have selected which makes it much easier for us to view.

    Thanks for the post. I can definitely go with that if I wait until next paycheck.
  7. That is a quality build, you could upgrade the GPU if your still in budget.

    Thanks. I'm glad I was able to pick good parts. Was a bit nervous about doing it.

  11. I wouldn't recommend the 560 at this time, the 7850 is much better imo and only like $20 more.
