Some advice needed on my first PC Gaming Build? Tags: Gaming stystems Build Homebuilt Last response: June 4, 2013 11:14 AM in Systems Share khorn06 June 4, 2013 10:13:04 AM So I want to build my own computer and I am trying to learn about all the different components, but before I buy anything I was wondering if I could get some advice on what I have so far. I am trying to get a build that has the minimum requirements, plus a tiny bit more, to play Crysis 3 in High Quality. My main concerns really are, did I go overboard bit? Will it all fit together? Did I get too big of a power supply? Any help would be great. I am trying to spend a little money as possible. Here is what I have so far: Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 - $139.99 CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz - $349.99 RAM: Corsair Vengeance 12GB (3x4GB) - $109.99 Video Card: GeForce GTX 680 2GB EVGA - $449.99 Hard Drive: SanDisk Extreme 480GB SATA III - $369.99 Disc Drives: ASUS Black SATA Drive - $18.99 Tower: Antec 900 ATX Mid Tower - $109.99 PSU: Corsair AX1200 1200W - $279.99 CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H50 - $59.99 GPU Cooler: Arctic Accelero Hybrid Extreme - $122.99 OS: Windows 7 Professional (OEM) - $139.99 WiFi Card: ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n - $26.99 Total Cost: $2,225.89 More about : advice needed gaming build tiny voices a c 387 4 Gaming a b B Homebuilt system June 4, 2013 10:33:39 AM Drop to an i5. i7 has no added benefits in games. Get 8gb RAM. You need a 1150 motherboard not 1155 for the new Haswell chips. The PSU is super overkill. Get a 650w unit. Drop that junk watercooler and get an air cooler. It will be better and quieter. The coolermaster hyper 212 evo is a great choice. Drop the GPU cooler. The one it comes with perfectly fine. Fortisslayer June 4, 2013 11:14:09 AM hmm id say drop the processor to a i5 and the psu...that enough to power 2 of those pcs and the ssd imo best for boot maybe a 40gb one then a 2tb 7200 hdd Can't find your answer ?
