Building a PC, looking for advice.

Hi, I want to start building a computer and I don't really know what to do.

here are the specs

Intel core i7 4770k CPU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116901

Mid-Tower PC case : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119240

600W Power supply unit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139048

2x8 gb RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231568

Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128592 I'm not sure if this is compatible with everything.

I'm planning on buying a cheap Graphics card and then upgrade it later.

I know there are other things missing, I'm not too sure what they are. Can you recommend me the other things I need to start building a pc.

Thank you.

  1. you can use the integrated graphics that comes with the cpu instead of a cheap graphics... it's not much but it will do for browsing, office work and low level gaming
  2. Marty 2123,

    1- Great selection on the cpu.
    2- Yes, the motherboard is compatible with the i7 4770K. It is based on intel's 1150 socket.

    What's your budget for the entire pc?

    I watched your video, and I have to say that it definitely helped me choose the remaining parts. Thank you ;)
  5. Oh and one more question, will the motherboard be compatible with the case?
  6. according to the specs the case can use matx and atx size boards so yes it would fit

    Would this case fan work with the case http://pcpartpicker.com/part/noctua-case-fan-nff12pwm ?
  8. Best answer
    1- The mobo that you are using is an ATX mobo.
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/11/VIA_Mini-ITX_Form_Factor_Comparison.jpg

    After reading the spec sheet, the mobo will fit in the CM Storm Enforcer.

    2- Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Case Fan can be fixed to the side of your case.

    Any more queries .... :)
  9. Nope, that's it I think :D
  10. Great combinations. just do it dear friend
