    are u open for suggestion? LOL yesterday i found a member asked community but refused to hear any opinon from us.

    kingston hyperx 4gb ddr3 1600 ---> make sure it is 1,5V ram, if you arent sure, get corsair brand RAM

    Power supply - Cooler Master GX 550W ---> this PSU has really bad reputation, get seasonic/corsair/xfx brand PSU

    -----

    CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K - 3.40 GHz --> for OC

    Motherboard - Asus P8H77-M - Intel H77 chispet ---> if it is for OC< dont get h77 board, get z77 board
  2. Don't get a coolermaster PSU. Get one from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.

    You need a z77 motherboard if you want to overclock the CPU.

    The GPU is only going to play games at medium settings at 1080p.

    If this is for gaming, you can do alot better.
  3. It's not a good gaming PC. How much money can you spend? I guess you need everything from hardware? can you buy from newegg?

    Yeah, obviously a lot depends on what the OP wants to do with the rig, but if it's for gaming, the CPU and the GPU are heavily unbalanced; I wouldn't pair a Core i5 with anything less than a 7850 on the graphics' subsystem unless I just didn't care about graphics' performance.

    I also wouldn't bother buying a "K" (unlocked) CPU if I weren't also buying an overclocking motherboard (z77). Although it's true that you could replace the motherboard later, the motherboard is generally the most annoying part to upgrade (requiring an OS reinstall, in most cases, and if you have an OEM copy of windows, a new motherboard requires a whole new license from Microsoft).

    If the OP could supply a budget, and declare his usage preferences, we'd be able to help better.
