    hey guys. after hours of browsing, searching and reading i've finally put my first build for a new middleclass pc together and wanna know your opinion and/or ideas of improvement. it will mainly be used for gaming.

    so far it looks like this:
    case: antec three hundred two
    CPU: i5-3570K
    Motherboard: asrock z77 pro4
    GPU: sapphire radeon HD7870 OC Ghz-edition

    Powersupply: BE QUIET! 630W L8-630W PURE POWER CM

    Your build looks good, compatible etc.

    I have to be honest I don't the SSD brand but if you can find a Samsung 830 or Crucial M4 I can tell you those perform well and are very reliable.
