Find a hole in this build?


Dec 9, 2012
Hey Guys,

It has been a few years since I have built a computer. I came up with this intel build. Please tell me your thoughts and suggestions.

Also, I am worried about the Gainward Phantom card taking up 3 slots. Do you think it will fit?

Is there any holes, or things I have overlooked that you guys can see.

Thanks very much for your help :)

I would check the position of the ram slots; use low profile ram if you have clearance issues with the video card. Newegg sells some samsung 1600 low profile ram that gets good reviews for overclocking, and doesn't cost much. For the power supply, I'd go with antec or seasonic in the price range you've quoted. With a single video card, 650 watts should be adequate in one of those brands.
