First build Help

Hi, I'm Andrew and I live in Taiwan. I would like to ask you guys if my parts are compatible and if there are parts that work just as well or better but cheaper.

I would like to know some tips while building the PC, thanks! :)

Case: Corsair Carbide 500r white

Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 LGA1155

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge

RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3-8GB (4GBx2) CL9

GPU: MSI R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/OC

SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K 120G 2.5" SATA III

Power Supply: Aopen 600W 80Plus Bronze Nagas (AO600-12AB5)

My build is around 1011 USD (29258NTD) and I wish it to be below 900 USD.

    Getting that case would be a little over budget.
    And the CPU is Non-k Model, so your Mobo is waste.
    Power Supply is Utter crap. Don't trust those Brands.
    And I suggest you to drop that SSD to a 64GB. And surely prefer a Better brand like OCZ\Samsung for a SSD, Kingston is bad at SSD.

    Case: 300R

    CPU: i5 3570k

    PSU: Corsair CX600

    And with the saved money get a 7870\660 or keep it. ;)

    Do you recommend adata, transcend or corsair's ssd? I can't seem to find samsung ssd's and ocz's ssd is a bit too expensive too me
  3. Corsair should be fine.

    Just check the Review of your Chosen SSD before buying.

    Ok, so here's my list of parts for now
    Case: Corsair Carbide 400r

    Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 LGA1155

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3570k

    RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3-8GB (4GBx2) CL9

    SSD: ADATA XPG SX900 64GB 2.5" SATA3

    Power Supply: CORSAIR CX 600W 80Plus Bronze

    My only problem now is should i get a MSI R7870 Hawk or MSI R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC?
  5. MSI 7950 would be alot better.
    So get it.
