First Build

Hey guys this is my first ever computer build and I would love it if someone would look it over real quick and see if it looks good or if there are any problems with it.

My Build:
i5 3570k
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Kingston Hyper X 8gb 1600
WD Caviar Black 1tb
Gigabyte GeForce 660 2gb
Antec Three Hundred Two
Corsair HX 650 watt power supply
Sony DVD drive

Hopefully it will all be good. Also any advice where you think I should change something would also be appreciated.

  1. Best answer
    Kingston Hyper X 8gb 1600 <--- re-check and make sure it is not 1,65v ram
    intel favors 1,5v ram

    WD Caviar Black 1tb <-- seagate is often cheaper with similar performace, black doenst add anything. same 7200 rpm
  2. Ok the ram I was going to buy was 1.65v so can you recomend good ram for under $50?
  3. what motherboard?
  4. Wow forgot to list that my bad its a asrock extreme 4 z77
  5. Also regarding the seagate barracuda I have heard that they have drive problems and crash a lot.
  6. get this ram http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cmz8gx3m2a1600c9b

    btw i use seagate 2TB and it have been working for 2 years without issue
    get wdc blue instead if u stick with WDC
  7. Ok thanks for the advice also is there any difference between the low profile ram and the normal ram from corsair because i like the look of the low profile ram a lot better.
  8. If your not playinh PhysX heavy games, i suggest getting an XFX 7870 GHz gpu.
  9. Why do you think the 7870 is better?
