My first Build - parts list..


Dec 10, 2012
Hey guys/girls,
This is a parts list for my first build or well just an idea for parts at this stage.
I want this rig to be able to game fairly well but is not the main focus of this build as I hardly have the spare time.
I can possibly afford up to $1200 an am asking you're opinion on the parts that I have chosen and if you had any advice to give me.

To be honest I'm not even sure if these parts will even go together :/.

Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4Ghz

Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 64MB 2TB

Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC128 128GB

ASRock Z77 Extreme4

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 OC

Antec Eleven Hundred (Black/Transparent)

FSP Group Aurum 750W

Many thanks in advance!
I would personally go for a Radeon at this price. The 7870 would be able to out-do the 660.

Also, if you are going to overclock, you might want to buy the CPU cooler now, as when you have the system finished and then you want to add the CPU cooler, it might be annoying to add one.

Don't forget a DVD-RW!
