Hello everyone, I'm new to this and would like to build a PC for school/gaming.

I think I have a fairly solid list of parts, with room for more complicated things down the road (SLI, multiple hard drives/raid/ overclocking)

I am going to start ordering the parts within the next few days, but before I do, I would like to double check that all the parts are compatible.

Probably the biggest thing I am unsure about is the power supply. Will it fit my Mobo?

Approximate Purchase Date: within the next few days,

Budget Range: Max is about $1500 with monitor and OS.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3d modeling, gaming, photo/video editing, .

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca,
Location: Canada

Overclocking: Yes, will be new to it.

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, want to have that option.

Your Monitor Resolution: What ever works best with the GPU

Additional Comments:
Games: WoW, Dishonored, battlefield 3, Skyrim,

Software: I will be using autocad/ solidworks, C++, photoshop


Here is what I have found:

CPU: i5 3570K: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

MOTHERBOARD:GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128545

fan controller is not necessary. Do you really need the SSD? I'm sure if you dropped it you could fit a 7870 in to play all those gtames you listed at good settings and to help out with cad/ps

Thank-you angaddev for the reply. I updated the list a bit, removing the SSD for now, and adjusting the amount of RAM.

So the grand total comes to about 1100$ for everything (monitor and OS included).
