Need help with a computer build

#1specter1717Posted 11/4/2013 11:52:00 AM
I want to build a really nice computer, but the problem is I don't know anything about them. I went to microcenter and told the guy this and he put together a list of what I should get. He told me this would be a top of the line computer. I just want to know if hes telling the truth or I could make a better one. Money really isn't an issue. This is the list he printed out for me.

Intel box intel core I7 - 4770k
MSI z87-GD65 gaming 1150 ATX
Samsunele 120 GB 840 Evo Sata 3
Crucial 16 GB 8x2 D3 1600 Dimm
WDOEM 1TB 3.5 Sata6.0GB/s 64
EVGA GTX780Sc 3GB ACX DDHDP
Corsair 850 HX 80+ Gold mod
IPSG LG 24x DVDRW SAta oem
Coolmast HAF912 ATX Gaming Case

He put a couple 2 year warranty plans and the total comes out to 1750.13. Should I go with what this guy says or can some tweaking be done? Thanks for any help in advance

Sure, that's a nice computer (mostly identical to mine except for the video card, I have a Radeon 7970).

You could stand to get a cheaper PSU as that Corsair HX850 can power two whole computers such as that one, but it's not going to hurt either. If you wanted to save some money, just drop to a good quality 650W unit, it'd still be enough for a second GTX 780.

Not a big fan of the HAF 912 case either, but it works.

Thanks for quick response. Is there a case you would recommend?

Cases are half features, half looks. I can't help you with the looks part, you have to find a case that you like the look of. I like minimalist designs. The Fractal Design Define R4 is a very nice case in terms of both features and looks if you ask me. I have a Corsair 500R and it's also a nice case. The Corsair 200R, 300R, 400R are cheaper alternatives. NZXT has some nice cases (e.g. Phantom), Silverstone has very nice, unusual cases (e.g. Raven, Fortress), etc.

I just want a case with really good ventilation. I dont care about looks i just want function. What would u recommend for that?

Most cases now have good ventilation. Coolermaster has the HAF (high airflow) series where there are mesh holes everywhere. Corsair just came out with the Air 540 which has very good ventilation.
