More about build need opinions suggestions
  1. CPU, check.

    Motherboard, check. It will overclock and is perfect for this build.

    PSU, lower to 650w.

    Case, it's your opinion the one you like.

    RAM, make sure it doesn't have the heatspreader get this one.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233186

    GPU, if you want Nvidia get the 680 if you prefer Radeon get the 7970.

    Cooler, get air cooler such as this one. It works quieter and maybe better.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099

    SSD, check.

    You will easily max out games with this PC, the 680/7970 are beast video cards.
  2. whats ur max budget and ur country of origin?
  3. thank you loresr97 .. that helped :) and what did you men by "heatspreader" is it good or bad for the ram to have one ?
    .................................
    iceclock my max budget is 1300$
  4. heatspreader are those huge spikes on the RAM memory such as this.

    :) all u need for maxing out games, faster than a 680 and when overclock its a no brainer for less money :D
  6. I'm loving my Samsung 840 SSD, couldn't be happier with it. I was looking at the CM 922 as well but ended up going with the Corsair 400r, but that's just because I prefer simpler looks. Very happy with the case as well.
  7. Your original build will do just fine. You could save some money and opt for the 7970 Radeon instead of a 680, but it's not that big of a deal. You will prolly save some money if you do though.

    As far as the cpu cooler is concerned, yours is just fine too. The hyper 212 evo is a great cooler for the price, but yours *is* better. Not 50+ dollars better, but it is better. So, you could save money by changing parts out, but nothing wrong with your build.
  8. Thnax for the help guys :)
  9. no problem hope u like my build souler :)
  10. thanks guys for the help :) due to your opinions and suggestions I have changed some parts :) note that my budget is 1300$ so I couldn't take some of the parts you recommended :(

    my new build :

    GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA

    Intel Core i5-3570K

    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO

    CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233186 )

    CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2

    EVGA Superclocked, Signature 2 (I liked it more XD and the 7970 people said it's great at first but it breaks after a while :( )

    SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB

    Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"

    and for the case I think i'm going to search for one from a local store because the shipping will triple it's original price :((

    SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    Note : too many people have told me that the 650w isn't enough so I picked the ( SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W ) and changed the GPU to MSI N680GTX Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 680 2GB

    what do you think ?
  13. looks good except id get a gtx 670 4gigs and overclock it, would be a better bang for bucks. get evga also if u can, got 5 years warranty and good customer service.

    also getting a barracuda 1 tb with 64meg cache would be cheaper and wield similar performances.

    also for ssd id get the 840pro as its more stable and fast than the 840 regular.

    if u cannot afford the 840pro. getting the

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226236

    or the

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820249024

    id get this 670 instead of a 680. 4 gigs versus 2 gigs and also overclocks to 680 levels and better bang for bucks. more future proof with double the vram.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130824

    cheers.

    and get this. its just as good as the corsair a bit cheaper and its 80+ platinum versus gold only.

    cheeers.
  14. is 500w psu enough for MSI N680GTX Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 680 2GB and overclocking it ?
  15. thats too low imo, also getting the 670 and overclocking its gonna be better.

    u want a 550watt atleast. 600 to be shur.
