Hi, I'm planning on building my own desktop computer since my former laptop was more than done and so far, I've found Marest's sample builds to be most useful.
My interests are pointing towards the 790 since It does seem to be quite the sweetspot.
I'm basically just looking for some form of confirmation that this is a fair build or if there are any parts that may be switched out to give a better result while still lying around the same price.
Since I just registered and haven't posted, I am not allowed to post links, which is forcing me to just give the model code instead.
This is what I'm planning on going for so far.
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K 3,4Ghz (Ivy Bridge) : BX80637I53570K
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660Ti : GV-N66TOC-2GD-EU
MoBo: ASRock Z77 PRO3 ATX
Case: Fractal Design Arc Midi
PSU: XFX ProSeries 450W : P1-450S-X2B9
RAM: Corsair 8GB (2x4096MB) CL9 1333Mhz XMS3 : CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 (switched into this instead since it was more easly obtainable)
HDD: Western Digital WD Green 1TB : WD10EARS
I did also happen to have this semi-old drive at my disposal which would spare me some money (pretty much unused, though vista is installed on it).
However, it's slower than the WD Caviar blue one and are wondering if the difference will be significant?
As for the PSU, it does feel to be a little low, but perhaps I'm wrong. It wouldn't be enough if I would upgrade to faster SLI 660Tis later?
Living in sweden and will probably be ordering most from Inet (for those who know) since I can't seem to find cheaper prices than theirs around here.
Monitor, keyboard and mouse do I already have available which will work for now.
