What do you think of this setup for my first gaming computer?

I am going from a base iMac to this so trust me I am sure anything will seem great, but I do want to be able to play most games on High/Ultra. My friend put this together so I just wanted a second opinion on what people thought of this...

I am mostly a Warcraft/Diablo player but would like to play games like Borderlands/Skyrim at top notch settings.

Are there any disconnects here? Items that could be priced better? Or something you recommend I upgrade to? I am around $900 on this setup, but I really do NOT want to exceed $1000. The Ivy Bridge was actually cheaper than the 2500K Sandy Bridge with a coupon on Newegg.

I am a novice at this, so the overclocking and what not will not make much sense to me. Thanks in advance! :)

Looks solid. I also agree with getting a more modern GPU such as the GTX660ti or 7870. Same/better performance and less power consumption. If you plan on overclocking eventually, you would want to step up a notch on the motherboard though. That board you selected, IIRC, doesnt have any cooling on the power delivery areas...

My suggestion is Asrock Z77 Extreme 4.

Agreed as well. Looks like solid choices, but opt for a newer GFX card. Welcome to TPU!

Everything looks fine, except the video card. You chose an older generation of cards. Have a look at the GTX 660's: Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, D...
So would this one be similar to the 560ti?

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Its actually cheaper, but you are saying it is newer? I apologize for being pretty novice with this.

It is cheaper, newer and faster. About 25% faster overall than the 560ti. :)

Really appreciate the advice, just a few more questions if you do not mind..

The new 660 says 2GB 192-bit, and the 560ti says 2GB 256-bit .. is there a difference here?

Also for memory..

I have the Kingston HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX

I see more reviews for G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory

And I can probably get the G.Skill a little cheaper... Any difference when it comes to memory?

Yes, about 64bits :p. Being serious, unless you are playing at resolutions above 1920x1200, that isnt going to come in to play.

Any cheap RAM will do. RAM is RAM. :)

Great, what about the hard drive - are there certain things to look for? My friend put in the..

Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

but I am able to get the following for about the same price...

Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s with NCQ Solid State Hybrid Drive -Bare Drive


Thanks again!

Also, if you don't plan on a CPU OC then why not this?
Save yourself $50 or put it towards a 660Ti

I wouldn't know the first think about OC. I just want to make sure if I am doing this, I am doing it right and not skimping out too much.

The Intel Core i5-3330 Ivy Bridge 3.0GHz (3.2GHz Turbo) 0 only has 1 review..

Would you guys recommend me downgrading from the Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) to that... the 660Ti will be about a $30 upcharge at that point...

What loss will I take from giving up the 3570 going to the 3330 and what benefit do I get from going 660 to 660ti.

As long as I can get some games at ultimate, I will be happy.

Who cares about one review. Newegg reviews, outside of DOA's are a terrible barometer of anything. Most people that write newegg reviews cant tell their dirty place from a hole in the ground.

660ti is a stronger card and if you wont overclock its not a loss at all.

I am impressed with my non Ti 660, it's hitting 1202 core stable. shogun 2 on ultra about 55 fps, plays pretty much any game i throw at it with 4x MSAA at 60 fps mostly

msi has the OC edition on sale right now on newegg, its the one i got, 234.95 free ship and a 30 rebate

660Ti will be about a $30 upcharge at that point
GTX660 vs GTX660Ti = $50 diff after rebate

i5-3330 vs i5-3570K = $50 diff with promo code

No up-charge at all, just pull that $$$ straight across.

Also, the i5's are same chip. The 3330 is just locked and clocked a bit lower. You will see more FPS from the 660Ti than from the 3570K.

My point is, if he is willing to spend the money anyway, it's better to invest in a stronger GPU than CPU.

^+1, i would go with the 3330 and get the Ti version, that gpu + cpu combo wont bottleneck at all, and since he was already gonna spend that money, that cpu should be more than sufficient enough for the 660Ti...i see an enthusiast being born here. hes gonna get the build, build it and then the OC bugs gonna bite him

You mentioned that your aren't interested in overclocking, so I would go for an i5 3550.

Am I looking at playing most games at Ultra with this setup? I've switched to the 660ti, z77, seagate HD, but downgrading the CPU

Thats a good move. You can definitely run most games maxed out with that setup.

As it is something I dont even understand, I wonder how much it will make a difference? haha

Should I look into a friend helping me build it? Seems more rewarding to do it myself. Any good guides on how to?
