Gday huligabuliga, Posted Image

When you say "a working computer" ? Do you mean parts working together? or a work computer or video/photo/sound editing? or a gaming+general usage computer?

What is your budget?

In which country will you be purchasing your parts?

Do you have a OS installation disk, OEM or Retail, 32bit or 64bit?

Asides from what colleague iammykyl has asked may I also offer a couple of pointers for you huligabuliga;

The MB is way below the standard of all of the other hardware and should be upgraded to a better spec.
A 1500W PSU for the listed components is more than 1000W and circa $300 of overkill, even after allowing for a second video card and a second HDD (see attached .jpeg) having too much power does no harm with the exception being your bank balance.
A couple of alternative PSUs http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID= or http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID= use the money saved to improve your MB to something like the examples @ http://www.microcent...duct_id=0387554 or http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID=

Thanks for the budget figure, fortunately you will not need to spend anywhere near $3000 to get a top gaming rig.
Here is an example build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/f2yw we can add/remove parts to suit.

Once you have decided on your parts would you like to look at the issues with your laptop.

Let us know if you require a screen, keyboard, mouse or blu/ray drive etc.

Just a couple of comments:

The GTX 670 phil recommended earlier is a much better deal than the 680 you picked. There really isn't enough of a performance difference to justify the $100+ price difference, IMO. If you really want top of the line and the most "future-proof" though, then go with the 680 but upgrade to the 4GB version:

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130799

or if you plan on doing some overclocking then go with the one below for the better cooling system:

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814127695

Also, since you're basically building a top-of-the-line system here, it really would be a good idea to include a SSD for your OS and regularly used programs as phil previously suggested. However, even if you go with the stuff you chose it's still going to be a monster of a system.

GL! :thumbsup:

Very valid points mentioned by kidnova as they will only compliment the list of parts that you have chosen for yourself.


Thanks for coming in with the additional guidance kidnova :thumbsup:

My suggestions for the build. Use the benchmark tool for the CPU, top right of the page.

> http://pcpartpicker.com/p/f7kY

Reasons or the selections.

The 3570K is more than powerful enough for any gaming/desktop,(even a little overkill)
Mobo, top notch selection, widely space GPU slot, 5 years warranty, superb thermal solutions.
RAM. 8GB, Optimal for the build. will perform a little better than first selection and is low profile, just in case you decide on an after market cooler, at a later date.
SSD. Toms hardware, best value/performance in price range.
HDD. I consider the right size for storage. If you think you need more, a better option is another HDD.
GPU. 4GB memory. would drive a very large or mutiple scrrens withou any problems.
Case, Personal choice, i just think this one is better all round.
PSU. Antec special build, review, > http://www.jonnyguru...=Story&reid=142
Windows7 > http://msdn.microsof...imits_windows_7
Unless\ you intend to install more than 16GB of RAM? you only need the home edition.

Have you looked at monitors yet?

You do not have listed, speakers, keyboard and mouse.
