Hello,

This is my first time building my own comp. I did some research but not sure if i really know what any of it means just looked up reviews and slapped this together. My budget is $1400 with shipping everything I have been looking at is from NCIX.com US version. so here is what i got;

CPU: Intel i5 3570k quad core
Mother board: MSI Z77A-Gd65 ATX
Video: PNY GeForce GTX 670 2gb
Memory: Kingston KHX1600C10D3B1K2/ 16gb
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1tb
CPU cooler: Corsair colling hydro H60
Optical Drive: Asus BC 12 B1st bluray + DVD
SSD: Samsung 840 series 120 gb
Case: Zalman ZM-Z9 U3 ATX mid tower
Power supply: Corsair TX650 V2 650W


So im not sure if this parts even go well together, so not hating please rather guide me in the correct way. Like i said my budget is $1400 buck and I would like to order all parts from same place. Running windows 7. Look forward to what i did wrong lol.

The memory is low quality

Find som,e 1600 MHz , 1.5 volt or less , and the lowest latency

Yours is CAS 10

start at 9 and work your way DOWN for quality
If you are just gaming you only need 2 x4 gig

Get the ASUS P8Z77-V Lk : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=71114&promoid=1302
You don't need 16GB of ram, 8GB is plenty : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=74758&promoid=1321
Get an aircooler like the hyper 212 evo : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=64385&promoid=1302
If you don't mind going with amd, this card is a good one : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=67172&promoid=1302
Or this 670 GTX, the msi pe : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=72914&promoid=1302
I recommend this case : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=76376&vpn=CC-9011023-W...
I would get a ssd with mlc nand over tlc, it's faster and with more endurance : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=71318&vpn=SSDSC2CT120A...

well if you want water cooling you could upgrade to the H100i

after checking it will fit in your case . It probably does but check the corsair website and confirm
Or upgrade to the 300R

Is a water cooling system fairly straight forward on installing? or is there some risk for a first time builder installing it himself? I am fairly handy(worked construction for 4 years)
