Finally making a build

#1Snuckie7Posted 6/2/2012 6:35:39 PM
So here's what I have so far. Need recommendations for PSU, and RAM. I don't need any peripherals at all except a keyboard. Any quality one will do, it doesn't need to be mechanical. My budget is going to be around $1100, but if it goes a little over it's fine.

Case: BitFenix Shinobi (Windowless) - $69

Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 - $90

CPU: Intel i5-3570K - $190 (Microcenter bundle with mobo)

GPU: Asus GTX 670 Direct CU II - $420

SSD:Crucial M4 64 GB - Not sure which model to get

HDD: Samsung Spinpoint 1 TB - $109

PSU - ?

RAM - ?

All this comes out to $880 before taxes and shipping.

If you'd like the option of doing SLI at some point: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371044
If not: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371030

For the RAM, any 8 GB (2 x 4) kit of DDR3 1600 would do. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231479 for example.

You'll want to add a custom cooler for your unlocked processor, I assume you plan to overclock since you're buying a K series, stock cooler = sucks

I'm biased on coolers and will only recommend the NH-D14, but it's massive, so case is issue, so I'll let someone post on that if you're interested.

PSU, depends on your future needs, if its just for that build you listed..

Seasonic, its on sale.. and its modular.. 80 bucks

Gskill, not a fan of the heatsink but its cheap and 1.5v , 45 bucks

Seasonic M12II 620w

Hyper 212 EVO

CM Storm Quickfire PRO Cherry MX Brown or Red

Any 2x8 RAM. Samsung RAM if you plan to overclock them. They're in stock at Mircocenter seperate modules. The usual G.Skill, Corsair, etc. at 1600. Lower latency the better.

Seasonic S12II/M12II 620w-650w or any of their re-brands from antec, corsair, nzxt. Whichever is cheapest I guess. Ocz ZS, ZT 650w would do as well. Just get some crucial, kingston or corsair ram from microcenter.

I don't think Microcenters are that popular, I've lived from one coast of the us to the other coast and never even seen one.

;p

Kingston HyperX and the link I posted is for the Seasonic M1211 for 80 bucks

I know as much xeeh, but he's clearly going to one and may as well get some ram while he's there.

I don't think I'm ever going to SLI so would the 520W be enough? It seems to be cutting it a little close.

And for the cooler I forgot to add, I'm getting a Hyper 212 EVO like some of you guys recommended.

Edit: Also which version of the Crucial M4 64GB would you recommend? I see 3 different ones on newegg.

The 520w is fine.
