Hi all,

I finally am going to build my own PC :D
After researching and reading forums I've come up with what I think is a decent build.
I would however like to get some acknowledgement and advice in case some things wouldn't be compatible, or if you would suggest a change in parts.

It is a gaming PC, with a budget of 1100€ with a buffer of 100€
I'd like to play games on very high settings (I play all different type of games)
This is for the PC only as I am ordering the VG248QE this week (144hz).

I have a Windows 7 Ultimate ready as well, so that doesn't have to be included in the budget.

I have chosen an SLI ready board which also supports Overclocking.
I went with the 3570k so I can overlock it in the future, as I don't think it is needed yet. If I would overclock it I will then as well buy a CPU cooler.
I think I should be fine without a CPU cooler if I'm not overclocking yet, right?
The case also provides quite some fans (and possibilities to add a few), which should keep the CPU cool.

I went for the GTX770 as I think it's best value. I will probably add another one for a nice SLI setup in a near future :)

This is what I've selected so far.
In case I would change things, I'd prefer to buy them on the same website, hardwareversand.de or otherwise dabs.ie.

Nice build and all compatible with one exception being that the case is not shown to have any USB 3.0 ports, if you can live with that then all is well :thumbsup:

Thanks and well noticed, guess I missed that :)

That is actually a good point. Would be a shame indeed to go for a new build with a case that has only 2.0

Gday.
+1 for the build.

I think I should be fine without a CPU cooler if I'm not overclocking yet, right?


I may be misinterpreting, the CPU comes with it's own stock cooler.
NB. Your selected RAM has very high heat fins and can interfere with installation of many after market coolers, possible alternative, low profile

Hehe, I indeed did not state it correctly, I meant that if I will be fine with the stock cpu cooler until I decide to overclock :)

Good point on the memory as well, thanks!

I'll check out that page as well, see what price it will get me :)
