I'm new to computers and have been saving up for a long time. Does this look like a good build? Am I able to play Elder Scrolls online with this setup? Help, comments, recommendations welcome! Thanks!

do you need a flash media reader? last time i made a build to see on cyberpower it was automatically ticked off for 30$
got the i5-3570 which is not overclockable, 3570"k" is more of the thing to go for, since you can overclock it later when you need a little extra juice


would you be interested in building one yourself?

When i remove the flash media reader it takes off $5.00. I am brand new to computers and feel more comfortable having it ready to go with some type of warranty. I can upgrade to the 3570K for $5 more. From what I'm learning on this forum, i think i'll take off the liquid cooling and go with the Corsair psu instead of "standard". The system is $976.00 (tax & shipping included)

ah ok.. well i think i did it 2 days ago.. it was charging 30$ for the card reader. go for the unlocked version of i5 and take the CoolerMaster evo 212 cpu ccooler itll be great. Yes corsair is a good choice, but just remmber you dont need a big amount 600watt will be more than enough.



Here is a build that i did for you to see what you could achieve yourself, I did go over the price of cyberpower because of win7
