Hello! This is my first ever post to the forum, and I really wanted to know the opinion of some of the members on this website. I've consulted it numerous times in the past , and each time it's been very helpful. I have read the other threads and posts about building a PC and the steps, but I still had some questions about my build (I haven't purchased anything yet, I've just been planning).


    CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz $239.99
    GPU: EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 770 2GB $409.99
    Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD3H $154.99
    RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) $79.99
    Cooler: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i Water Cooler $87.99
    Power Supply: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W $109.99
    HDD: Western Digital WD Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB $89.99
    SSD: SAMSUNG 840 EVO 120GB SATA III $109.99
    Case: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel $39.99

I am fairly certain that the HDD, SDD, RAM, Motherboard and CPU are solid choices, but I do have some questions regarding the others.

GPU: I know the GTX 770 is a good card, but I am unsure whether I should buy the version with 2gb or 4gb GDDR. I have read that the 2gb is more than enough, but I don't know if that's only true for next-gen games when using the SLI and 2 of the cards, not just 1. I would be willing to purchase a second card, if the cost per performance would merit the addition $409, but it would be a couple months down the road.

Cooler: The cooler will cool the system sufficiently, I just question its reliability after reading some comments of it leaking. I'm not sure if it's user error, or manufacturer error.

Power Supply: My only question is if 750 W is too much power, or if 600 W would suffice.

Case: One more simple question: is the case too small to house all the components?

Also, if you noticed one piece of my build that is unnecessary, or something with a cheaper alternative that is still 90%+ as good, then please let me know! :)


If you managed to read all of this, thank you! - If you managed to read all of this and are able to answer anything, thank you even more! :D

I hope I didn't write too much or ask any stupid/out of place questions.

Ahh okay, thank you, I thought it might just be an isolated incident.

Cheers! :D
