Thanks! More about : noob 1400 dollar gaming build manofchalk a b 4 Gaming January 3, 2013 12:21:06 AM Its perfect, literally no objections at all. You'l be quite happy with this rig. If Crossfire/SLI is a possibility down the line (which the board can support), would get a 750W PSU. jonjonjon January 3, 2013 12:28:40 AM yea looks good. i like IPS monitors but that's just me. you could also get the sandisk extreme 240GB for the same price. it uses toggle MLC nand instead of TLC nand. either way you wouldn't notice a difference. http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=69895&vpn=SDSSDX-240G-...

I also think you should go for an IPS monitor, Dell has some for a reasonable price. Good luck! boulbox a b 4 Gaming January 3, 2013 1:55:30 AM i would change the 840 into an 830 the regular 840 is not on the same level as the 830's speed and the 830 is cheaper PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($204.99 @ Newegg) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.98 @ Amazon) Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($119.99 @ NCIX US) Memory: Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($34.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Samsung 830 Series 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($169.95 @ B&H) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ NCIX US) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card ($386.97 @ Newegg) Case: Cooler Master HAF XM (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($113.98 @ Amazon) Power Supply: XFX ProSeries 750W 80 PLUS Silver Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($98.39 @ NCIX US) Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224BB DVD/CD Writer ($15.99 @ Newegg) Monitor: Zalman MZ240ED 24.0" Monitor ($119.99 @ Newegg) Total: $1365.21 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
