Hi! This is my first PC Build ever! I'd appreciate to get some input. I'm planning to do some gaming with this rig. I currently play League of Legends mostly. I'm looking into playing Planet Side 2 and games of similar note with this machine.
Here are recommended system specs to play Planet Side 2.
CPU: Intel i5 processor or higher / AMD Phenom II X6 or higher
CPU Speed: Info
RAM: 8 GB
OS: Windows 7
Video Card: nVidia GeForce 500 series or higher / AMD HD 6870 or higher
Sound Card: Yes
Free Disk Space: 15 GB
Judging from the CPU you picked, you don't plan to overclock but you picked a Z77 motherboard and that series is designed for OC'ing.
The i5-3570K is pretty much the gamers' choice for CPU, but if you don't intend to OC, you can get the 3470 with an H77 motherboard. If you do get the 3570K, go for either the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 or ASUS P8Z77-V LK.
I'd change the power supply to 520W or 620W Seasonic (S12II), better quality for same price.
Hi Folks! Sorry it took me so long to update. I probably won't get a chance to actually build my PC till the beginning of May considering I'm at school now and don't really have the space to do it. But, thanks for your help!
Other components I'm buying with this build that aren't listed that I didn't want to bother your time with/not as concerned about:
-HDMI Cable (to connect to a 24'' TV I already own that I'm going to use as a monitor)
-Keyboard (probably gonna just get a relatively cheap one, that's what I've been used to my whole life)
-Microsoft Windows 8 (I can get a steep discount as a student)
