Hi, I am a huge newb when it comes to building your own PC stuff, as this is my first time, and I have done a lot of reading and fact gathering about what a gamer such as me should include, but that is not enough and I need someone who knows what they are talking about to have a look at what I gathered thus far.
ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 Intel Z68 Motherboard ($180)
Intel Core i7-2600K ($300)
Noctua NF-P112-1300 120mm CPU Cooler and Case Fan ($25)
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 16GB (4 x 4GB) ($110)
XFX Radeon HD 7950 Double D Black Edition ($400)
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 7.1 ($30)
Seagate Barracuda 1TB (7200rpm, 64MB cache) ($100)
OCZ Agility 3 Series Solid State Drive 120GB ($90)
Lite-On Internal Blu-Ray Burner ($75)
Cooler Master HAF 932 Full Tower ($130)
OCZ ZX Series Modular Power Supply 850W ($125)
Total Cost(minus peripherals): $1565 (USD)
I'd be willing to spend a couple hundred more if ya'll have suggestions. My main concern was if I even need another CPU cooler, and if so, is this 1 fan enough? I mean my Full Tower Case comes with 4 fans as it is, and even though I am a gamer, I do not have plans of overclocking at all. Also, I am unsure about my hard drive; I feel like there is a better option out there I can't find. Finally, do ya'll think I went a little overboard on my graphics card considering it is the most expensive aspect? I am hoping my build is fairly balanced, but again, I am not sure.
Any thoughts on my first custom build will be much appreciated. Thanks!
