    Need help with first build

    Hey all I need some help with my first pc build. I'm looking to buy in the next 3 weeks or so, and just wanted to make sure everything will match up and work together.

    sorry I can't post links yet but this is what I'm looking at buying/building.

    secure(dot)newegg(dot)com/WishList/PublicWishDetail(dot)aspx?WishListNumber=18188345

    Thanks in advance.

    The link you specified doesn't lead anywhere (http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...%28dot%29aspx/).
    Write out the full specification list (or make your wish-list public) and your budget. Also, check out these 2 threads:

    - Skip the thermal paste.
    - Get a NZXT Havik instead of the Corsair H40 (unless you really want to brag about having liquid cooling).
    - Get Low Profile RAM modules; there really is no need for those huge heatsinks.
    - I wouldn't get that PSU myself, and 700W is majorly overkill. Get something like the XFX ProSeries 550W or the Seasonic S12II 520W.
    - Preferably get a GPU with an aftermarket cooler. The one you have selected comes with the stock cooler.
    - I'd get a more well-recommended case myself, but I see nothing wrong with the one you have selected. If you like it, stick with it.
