Hey guys

I'm going to build a PC, I'm buying the parts 2 or 3 at time since I dont have enough money to buy them all together.

So I need feedback on the select parts for the build, if I'm missing something and anything else that can help on my journey.

7- Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H80i

Do you plan on lugging this around? If not I would suggest a cheaper case.. Antec 300 goes for $70 and is a solid case. (versus $190)

6- Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.5 GHZ 8 MB Cache BX80646I74770K

The alternative being the Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell BX80646I54670K.. again... a bit cheaper with about as much umph.

2- MSI Computer Corp. Motherboard ATX DDR3 1333 LGA 1150 Motherboards Z87-GD65 GAMING

Not a bad board for $167.

Quote

3- Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10)

Okay RAM.. $144

4- Corsair Professional Series HX 750 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold (HX750)

Solid.. modular is always nice. If you need to shave off a bit - the Bronze version isn't bad either.

Quote

5- MSI Computer Corp. Video Graphics Card N770 TF 2GD5/OC

A $400 videocard seems a bit excessive, but okay.

Quote

7- Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H80i

Not a fan of liquid cooling.. at best a fun endeavor, but hardly needed. Though the stock heatsinks on Haswells are a bit lacking - I just installed a COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO and it works great.

8- Asus Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-Ray Drive (BC-12B1ST)

Okay

Quote

9- WD Velociraptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 3.5" SATA Hard Drive

Okay

Quote

10- Intel 520 Series Solid-State Drive 120 GB SATA 6 Gb/s 2.5-Inch - SSDSC2CW120A310

Okay.

The OS is really irrelevant, but good to know.

Thank you for the help modi!

I chose the - Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H80i - because I read
it works great when overclocking your CPU , I checked out - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO - seems
like a really good option and less expensive.

The reason for - MSI Computer Corp. Video Graphics Card N770 TF 2GD5/OC - is I want to learn how to use
the GPU for password cracking ( nothing illegal, the purpose is purely educational ).

Again great advice modi, once again DIC For The Win :) WOOT!

Install CentOS Linux. Very efficient with system resources. I did that and then installed VirtualBox and installed an instance of Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate. I can now play any and every PC game in the known universe. Old games like Age of Empires I play on XP and new ones like Starcraft 2 I play on Windows 7. It's been awesome. :gunsmilie:
