Description

Wanted a gaming PC and finally decided to take the plunge. Was able to get everything at MicroCenter for decent prices. Originally was going to use the H80 liquid cooler but it wouldn't fit over my motherboard so swapped to the smaller H60.

should have gotten a i5 with a gtx 770 way better

while i agree that an i5 is a good gamer's choice, there are games like Battlefield 3 and Crysis 3 that take advantage of multiple threads. however, the difference even them is minimal, especially with higher graphics.

I know those H60 tubes would be kinda close to the back of the card, but if they don't interfere too much, consider moving the GPU up to the next PCI-E slot so that the front intake fans can feed it easier.

Do you plan to do any content creation since you've chosen the i7 and 16GB of RAM? Also you say you got these for good deals, but nobody can see that if you don't edit the price. Right now it's just showing the lowest current price. I'm sure a lot of people would understand your part choices a lot better if they knew how much things cost (ie, Microcenter sold the i7 at the price of an i5, etc).

This is a good build, but you should move the GPU to the top pcie slot because that's the pcie x16 slot. The bottom is x8.

Because Corsair PSUs are the only good ones. (sarcasm)

Forget Seasonic, Cooler Master, NZXT, or Enermax. Or EVGA, to a certain extent.
