New build need some feedback


Jul 29, 2012
So yeah I want to play games on the pc at like max graphics (ultra settings) with a steady 50-60 fps. Here is my current build so far and also feel free to change some things. My budget is $1500 since im not that rich. I also think i'll be buying everything from Micro Center since there in my neighborhood.

Intel Core i5-3570K Processor: ($170 @ MicroCenter)

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO: ($30 @ MicroCenter)

EVGA GTX 670 FTW Graphics Card: ($420 @ MicroCenter)

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H Motherboard: ($150 @ MicroCenter)

8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM: ($40 @ MicroCenter)

128GB Samsung 830 Series SSD: ($130 @ MicroCenter)

2TB Western Digital Caviar Black Hard Drive: ($180 @ MicroCenter)

750W Corsair TX750 V2 ATX Power Supply: ($120 @ MicroCenter)

CM Storm Enforcer Mid Tower ATX Gaming Computer Case: ($90 @ MicroCenter)

UO700-K HighSpeed USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Burner: ($33 @ MicroCenter)

TOTAL: $1363
almost doing it right, but components other than the CPU and motherboard are cheaper elsewhere

get this instead

-the 670 i packed is the same as the evga ftw but made by galaxy. if other options such as the gigabyte windforce 3x 670 were around the same price, i would easily go with that instead
-d14 is the way to go if you want the best air cooling possible (about the best)
-packed best ram ever. will overclock like a beast
-modular power supply that is cheaper and better
-256gb isnt that much more than a 128gb
