Help - new to picking parts :D

Hi there community, I am buying some new computer parts. I have limited experience but prefer to buy something that will last over time by spend a little more $. I have picked out some parts listed below and was wondering if I could get advice on three things.

1. will these parts all work together, fit on motherboard, fit in case, have enough power etc, is it sufficient cooling...
2. did i pick any bad parts/bad company manufacturer or parts that can be beaten by a competitor in performance for roughly similar price or less?
3. is any parts i missed?

  1. Best answer
    Case: Expensive but good.
    UPS: Not necessary, but not a bad idea.
    PSU: Go with a Corsair TX 750W
    RAM: 16GB would be more than enough. 2x8GB DDR3 1600MHz
    SSD: Good
    MOBO: Why not go with Z77 and get a 3770k?
    CPU: Switch to 3770k to save a lot of money
    GPU: Best you can get, but either get 3x1080p monitors or a 2560x1600. It will be a waste to game on one 1080P monitor.
    HDD: Slow but a lot of space
    Cooling: With the money saved from switching to Z77 why not do a custom water loop?
  2. Thank for your quick response!

    could u elaborate exactly what u mean by this cause im a novice


    Quote:
    Switch to 3770k to save a lot of money

    the reason i pick the biggest one is cause streaming uses alot of cpu im told

    thats what i was go for, mainly to store movies

    i had problems with my cpu overheating in past, i dont really know what a custom water loop is, will that intel one keep it icy colds :D?

    thanks for your time

    p.s. whats the difference between 1600mhz and 2133mhz ram? why u suggest the 1600?
  3. the reason i pick the biggest one is cause streaming uses alot of cpu im told

    by this i mean what the difference between the two models i,e, the one i pick and ur suggestion?
  4. The reason I said 3770k over the 3970x is the difference of ~$650. Also, the z77 mobo will be cheaper. You could take this extra money and put it towards a better monitor. I just got a 2560x1440 monitor and highly recommend it. You will notice no difference in gaming between the 3770k and 3970x. If you don't feel comfortable build a water loop then just get a good air cooler like a noctua.
  5. ok thanks! one more thing with ram - whats the difference between 1600mhz and 2133mhz ram? why u suggest the 1600? :D
  6. Best answer selected by 1117248.
  7. In gaming there is virtually no difference between 1333 MHz and 2133 MHz besides price. 1600 and 1333 cost pretty much the same so might as well get 1600. Did you change your mind on the monitor situation?
  8. hi there, i think i will go with 3 1080p monitor? :D

    also do i need a soundcard? i dont really use my speakers i just use earphones...
  9. Any mobo will have sound on it. If you find that isn't sufficient then add a sound card later on.
  10. thanks mate i appreciate all the help! :D i ordered it all last night :-o might need some help later to put it all together. hopefully there are some guides in the youtube.
  11. If you have a question let me know. Good Luck!
  12. all the parts will be with me at like the 16/17 jan :D im not looking forward to the challenge! but thx for offer to advice me :D
  13. Not looking forward to the challenge? I had more fun building my computer than playing any game.
  14. things have gone bad in the past when i tried to change the ram, install an ssd and change the cpu fan... wow it ended bad... i broke clips, destroyed the ram-cause i was following an online tutorial that was running on the PC that i was changing the ram in... :-/ bent pins... Heh =.=''
  15. Take your time and be gentle. You should never touch the mobo when the computer is running either.
