Try build a cheap but powerful gaming computer.

Your parts are all compatible and will work well but I don't think a cheap build. If you have done your research and decided on the parts, please ignore the following. will make some observation, not criticisms.

You could use a MB costing $170 and get the same gaming performance.
Use a low profile RAM, same performance, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231546
A 500/600 watt PSU would be more than enough for your build.
Consider using this drive, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822148840

There is very little difference between the 670 and 660ti Or you could consider this card, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814202008
You may be able to budget in a SSD
You have not listed a Optical drive or a OS.

Hello jack10135

While iammykyl is offline I will chime in if that is ok;

If you only intend on gaming and not taking up 3D modeling, CAD or professional video editing you can save a large amount of cash by choosing an i5 processor such as the 4670k, the money saved will allow for adding an SSD for faster boot times and access to you favourite games.

I will put an alternative list of parts together for you to look over and no doubt iammykyl will also do the same when he returns.

What type of OS disk do you have as in is it a full retail or an OEM disk, this is important because if the disk is an OEM type and the product key has been used with another MB then it cannot be reused as it is tied to the original MB, if the disk is the full retail type then as long as the product key is not still being (or has never been) in use on another computer then it can be used.

Read the customer reviews from people who have the card http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID=

If you have a Micro center store near to you will be able to save yourself some cash on the i7 4770K please note that these CPUs are known to run hot.

You are welcome BTW :thumbsup:

Please understand that we are not pressuring you into a particular build, we aim for a balanced system with the highest performance for the budget indicated.

Some CPU benchmarks,

GPU, Look for benchmarks that reflect the resolution of your monitor.

Gday.
Thanks for keeping us updated.
Some tips for first time builders.
Download the User manuals as they are often more up to date than those in the box and you can also familiarize yourself with them.
The G2G how to build, thanks to Troy and Artellos, > http://www.geekstogo...r-own-computer/ Take note of the safety and anti static measures.
You will find it easier to build if you proceed in this order.
Change the I/O shield in the case.
Check careful that the stand offs on the MB mounting plate match exactly the pattern and number of screw holes in the MB.
Then, working on a piece of cardboard a little larger than the MB.
Install the CPU, > heatsink/fan, (CPU fan plug to CPU fan header on the MB.) > RAM, (correct slots from MB manual), > PSU, > optical/HDD/s, (leave the bay opposite the end of the PCI.e slot, for video card, empty, > install the MB.
Complete the rest of the build.
Check over the wiring. (MB requires two power cables to enable successful Boot)

I always install a mini internal system speaker like this > http://www.cwc-group.com/casp.html

Any problems, "Just whistle"
