I am building my first computer and after much research came up with a tentative list of parts and was hoping I may get the community at large to review them! A friend of mine who recently built his PC suggested I post my specs on here since this community will most likely give me better feedback.
My goals for this computer are as follows : Gaming, web browsing, research, word processing, intermediate image processing.
Research is for university chemistry and requires intense CPU/GPU operations.
I have a soft cap budget at 1500$, I can be convinced to go to 1650$ at most if you convince me haha
To start out I should list what I don't need since I already have these covered...
-Don't need a monitor
-Don't need a keyboard and mouse
-Don't need an OS (yet)
And here are the parts I have in mind...
Component Part Name
Graphics Card EVGA GTX 770 2GB
Hard Drive Seagate ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop Solid State Hybrid Drive
Memory G.Skills Ripjaw X series (Blue), F3-12800CL7D-8GBXM
Power Supply XFX P1-850X-XXB9 850W Bronze
CD-Drive Asus Black E818AAT OEM
Case Cooler Master HAF-932
Wireless Adapter Rosewill N900PCE Wireless N Dual Band Adapter
Keyboard and mouse Logitech MK550 Black USB RF Wireless Ergonomic Wave Combo
I was planning on buying all these parts from newegg (with the exception of the processor) and the total comes to 1461.51$ after tax.
I believe that is it..if anyone has any suggestions for the build or alternative parts or just general feedback I would be very grateful.
Thank you everyone for your feedback, I have followed your suggestions and updated my power supply ( thanks centrifugalblunderbuss!) and have swapped storage options for a samsung 840 evo ssd and 2tb hd (thanks Deemo13!) along with a few other changes as new deals presented themselves.
