Help me build my first computer. My final topic on it.

#1NewportBox100sPosted 3/4/2014 8:07:50 AM
I've made dozens of topics on this in the past. Well the time is now. I've got $1200 coming back in taxes. But I've decided to start buying piece by piece using my own money and have everything I need within the next 2 months. This is what I'm wanting:

i5 4670k
GTX 770
8GB RAM
2TB hard drive
500 watt PSU
Cooler
Case
Z-87 motherboard
Windows 8.1

Let's gooooo! Help me find the best pieces I can use. Budget is obviously $1200. And I have a 23 inch monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers.

You can get a Fractal R4 for $79.99 + free shipping right now on Newegg. (free shipping on a PC cases usually saves you at least 10-15 dollars USD)

Offer expires in 2 days though.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352020

Coupon code for $20 off is on the page.

Great case for the price, or even for the normal retail price actually.

The entire R4 series is very well reviewed across the board.

Seems to be a cheapo plasticfest but it looks like it has decent cable management and it looks alright overall, so it's up to you. You might want to look at the Corsair 200R, Fractal Design Core 1000, NZXT Source 210. They should cost about the same. They're not necessarily much better in terms of quality, but at least I can vouch for them, not so with the Enermax since I'd never seen it until your post.

Most anybody will recommend a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO for your cooler. It's the cookie cutter cooler these days, it's cheap and works fine, so feel free to go with that.
