I would go for a better quality case, a cheap case will have cheap noisy fans and you would need to buy extra ones, putting the cost up.

Your budget is to small to get you a great performing build, because of the costs of parts where you are. Please consider this proposal.

What I would like to see you build, > http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LcAb + another HDD or SSD added later.
Even changing to an i5 and a cheaper case will not get a decent GPU. NB. wattage, the antec 520 w will be OK.

This will give you a functioning great core machine, adding a video card as soon as you can afford the one you want. > http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Lcw0
+ HDD/s as you need them, or a SSD.
Case > http://www.kilobaita...L_402&ID=466462
On the CPP page, if you change the location, the prices and availabilities for the country you select will change.

Than you for the advice. Considering this case is 48% It's worth getting it ;)
When it comes to CPU. Why 3770k? I thought that for gaming, little bit of editing and rendering 3570k is OK assuming I'm going to overclock it :)
I was thinking long and hard about gtx670. If choosing 670, 3770k and antec case In my guess Ill have money saved for all the parts about in 3-4 months. I could wait that. The parts could get also cheaper :D
Ofcourse I could buy them not all at once. For example I could buy case now and replace it with my old one.

Yes, you are right, I apolagize for my mistakae and causing any confusion, was working on another buildl wher the priority was video editing and then gaming. Please see the correction.

Update, 23rd March. > http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LpvK That gives you a better bottom line.


Don't think most parts will get cheaper except the GPU, I think the case is worth getting as it may not be on sale for long.

Well, I could then use my old gt9800 1gb(If it's compactible with ASRock z77 extrme4) video card until gtx 670 could get cheaper.
Maybe when gtx 7xx series comes out gtx 6xx series will get more affordable. :)

Yes, you can use that card, it is compatible. Even without a 6xxx you will notice a significant increase in system performance.

Your RAM has been tested on the Asrock Extreme4 > http://www.corsair.c...earn_n_explore/ The B just donates the colour blue.

So it is settled then. Will get 670 later. :)
Thank you for all your help. ;)

You are more than welcome, been a pleasure to assist you.

Download the Mobo User manual from the Asrock Web site as it is probable more up to date than the one that comes in the box.


A couple of items I recommend you add to your list.
A internal mini system beeper like this, > http://www.jonnyguru...=print&reid=266
A anti static wrist strap like this, use even when handling parts out of their bags, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16899261005

A how to build, thanks to Troy and Artellos, > http://www.geekstogo...r-own-computer/

Just post if you need any more help or have questions, Would also appreciate the results, performance of the build.
