Gaming PC Build: Case, Hard drive, and SSD advice needed.

Hello All, I am building a new PC this year and have answered the forum questions so it is easier to see what I already have chosen.

Approximate Purchase Date: 2-3 weeks
Budget Range: 1,800-2,200
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Internet, Movies
Are you buying a monitor: Maybe a future buy
Do you need to buy OS: Yes, getting Windows 7
Preferred Website(s) for Parts:, use the payment plan here a lot
Location: Coeburn, Virginia, USA
Parts Preferences: None really, just trusted manufacturers
Overclocking: Maybe
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: Windows and bling are not completely necessary, just want a good machine to last and be upgradeable.

Parts already chosen:

Mother Board: GIGABYTE GA-G1.Sniper M5

GPU: EVGA ACX Cooler GeForce GTX 780

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz

Ram Memory: G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB

CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650 G 80 PLUS GOLD Certified 650W

Parts needed:

Case: Considering a full tower because of future upgradability
Hard Disk Drive: Need storage but not massive amounts
SSD: Would like for the OS and select games

Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks! Also if I missed something that was supposed to be a part of this questions please let me know, I used the sticky thread so I hope all is right.

  1. Get a PSu from Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic.

    Get 8gb RAm for a gaming machine. Anything else will be a waste and not do anything.

    If you are gaming and not rendering or encoding videos, get an i5.

    For the SSd look at the samsung 840 EVO or 840 PRO.

    Case: look at Corsair for some very high quality and not too flashy cases.
  2. Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell

    EVGA ACX Cooler GeForce GTX 780

    CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB


    CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W

    Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

    COOLER MASTER HAF series RC-912-KKN1

    Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM

    Samsung 840 Pro 256GB

    Look good? any other thoughts?
  3. The cx line form corsair isn't the best. I would get an XFX 650w unit for sure.

    Everything else looks good.

    Changed a few things, just want to make sure everything will work correctly with each other.
    Also do I need any cables or will everything be included?
  5. Looks good. All the cables you need are included with he motherboard.
