Hi RDB95< Posted Image

Just trying to give you a heads up here, so please don't shoot the messenger.

Your parts would work together but the system is very unbalanced. We could configure a better performing build.

Q. Is this a gaming rig? If Yes.
Q. The Motherboard is great if you intend to use 2 video cards?? very high speed RAM, and over-clock everything like H*** including the CPU??
CPU too big, GPU too small.
RAM speed to high, unless you over-clock.
Green drive should not be used for the OS, system drive, only for storage.
PSU, poor quality and too big for a single GPU system.

Q. In which country will you be buying your parts?
Q. What is your budget?

Edit. to make questions clearer.

Hello RDB95

Please answer each question that iammyky has asked as this will ensure that you get the best build for the best price.

An example of a good spec gaming rig http://pcpartpicker....ower2/saved/ynl

You will note that an i7 CPU is not required.

Hi RDB95


Your modified proposed build is good, see, > http://pcpartpicker.com/p/WuNg Based on that total price, Please consider the suggested configuration which I think is a little more balanced and would give better performance.

Update build, 11th May. > http://pcpartpicker.com/p/WwsJ

Please answer the questions in Post #2 so that any nec alterations can be made.

You are most welcome iammyky, it is pleasing to know that the guidance that we freely give is actually appreciated by someone at least :whistling:

How about doing away with the wireless adaptor and having a MB with an integrated wireless device http://www.superbiiz...MB-Z77VPTB&c=CJ

That's a good option Phillpower2, would get all the special software + thunderbolt.
Would increase budget by $36, so will await a decision from RDB95 ???
