You don't need a gaming motherboard, the cooler is unnecessary as you won't be overclocking. 960 and upper tier i3 are OK but if you save enough ditching the gaming board and aftermarket cooler, I'd recommend sticking with that i5.

First off you d not need a $200 motherboard in a $750 PC

I then gave you a 250 gb SSD instead of a 120 gb one 

The power supply you had selected was not that good of a unit. I picked a 550w evga g2 unit. it will be much better than that other one.


3 tips to have a good time on the LTT forums | 1. When you reply to someone please quote them | 2. Please follow your threads | 3. Follow the C.o.C 

If you follow these 3 tips you should have a blast.

i'm rather proud of this for some reason. http://imgur.com/6ttS5XZ

Not bad but I think better is possible. I'll take a gander in a sec.

You didn't say what the PC was used for, and what games you play?

Not necessarily true, a lot of heat can build up in case depending on your graphics card.

It's also generally quieter, and cheaper cases have worse sound deadening.

Nevermind, get this. Not even going to bother trying a build of my own.

Though, I'd spend the little extra money on a 250gb SSD. Much better performance.
