Question about building my own PC?
Hello everyone, I have decided to get into building my own gaming PC, but I was wondering if all of these components would play nicely together, or if you have any suggestions on improvements Intel Core i5-650 3.2GHz LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Desktop Processor ASUS P7H55-M Pro Motherboard - Intel H55 G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL - Retail Western Digital WD5000AAKS Caviar Blue Hard Drive - 500GB, 7200rpm, 16MB, SATA-300, OEM BFG GeForce 9800 GTX Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W Continuous Power "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" ... - Retail Full black gaming ATX mid tower case Windows 7
- Looks good!
Should be a nice build.
- Looks pretty decent, yes. I have 8 GB of that same RAM with a Core i7 870 CPU. I would suggest however getting a higher end video card if you want it for gaming, such as a 5770 ATI Radeon or higher, or at least a 260 Nvidia GTX. ATI seems to have the best price/performance ration at the moment though
- sounds good but i would get a geforce 200 series card on sale somtimes they are much better.
- The build is not good in my opinion.Change the cpu with an i5 750 quad core (better performance same price) and a similarly priced motherboard that works with it.The ram is excellent.Change the hdd to a caviar black or a samsung f3 and if this pc is for gaming choose from these cards( ati 4850,ati 4870,ati 4890,ati 5770,ati 5850) or (nvidia gtx 260,gtx 275).The psu should be fine.And as for the case I'd get the cm 690 ii advanced.And for the role of later overclocking get a coolermaster hyper 212 plus cooler.
Besides that your build should work fine.
