Hey all,
I'm pretty new to PCs and I've decided to build one from scratch. I've done some research and had a really awesome employee at Micro Center help me out big time. Here's what I'm currently looking to get along with prices. Let me know what you all think; if prices are good, pieces are good etc. Thanks!


Processor: Intel i5 - 3570 $189.99
Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Pro4 1155 ATX $69.99
RAM: Corsair 8GB (the Blue ones) D3 1600DIM C9 <- don't know if you need that info
HDD: Seagate, 1 TB 3.5 SATA 7200RPM
Case: I have a few in mind; any suggestions? (around 50 dollars or so)
Power Suppy: OCZTECH 600W MODXSTREAM PRO APFC $74.99
Disc Drive: is 16.99. Nothing special.
Video: EVGA GTX560 1 GB $199.99
OS: Windows $99.99

hey there. I made some changes/suggestions for you:

Processor: Intel i5 - 3570k $189.99
Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 1155 ATX $89.99
RAM: Corsair 8GB
HDD: Seagate, 1 TB 3.5 SATA 7200RPM
Case: NZXT Source 210/CM HAF 912 $38/$60
Power Suppy: antec HCG 520w $79.99 can save on a psu buying online
Disc Drive: is 16.99. Nothing special.
Video: EVGA GTX560 1 GB $199.99 - choose another card for $200
OS: Windows $99.99

it would be to your advantage to buy the gpu, power supply and maybe the case and ram online. you'd come out a bit cheaper or with better stuff or both.

Hmm. Thanks for those suggestions. Now I'm looking at that CM HAF 912, that looks like a pretty good option.
