What does /b/ think about this computer i am assembling?

Please tell me if there's any small tweaks i should make, preferably to save money

NZXT 820 Phantom case

GIGABYTE GA-Z97-D3H motherboard

MSI GeForce GTX660 GPU

Intel i5 4430 i5 3ghz CPU

8GB Ripjaw RAM, 2133MHZ

Corsair cx600 PSU

Standard 1TB SATA drive

gonna upgrade to SSD later.

Anything i should change? Any parts that's overpriced?
And can i upgrade to watercooling later? Thanks /b/

bumping with computer porn
>>
>>562091753
>Intel i5 4430 i5 3ghz CPU
Go big or go home, just get the 4690
>8GB Ripjaw RAM, 2133MHZ
anything above 1600 is a waste of money, make sure the timing is 9-9-9-24
>Corsair cx600 PSU
Seasonic or XFX
>Standard 1TB SATA drive
The fuck is a "standard" 1tb drive?

Want to save money? Don't buy a fucking $140 case.

Watercooling a shit
>>
You can't overclock that CPU. Either get a K CPU, or drop the motherboard to an H97 board to save money.

The 660 is shit. Get a 760.

CX power supplies aren't great. Try and get a better one.

RAM above 1600MHz is pointless if you aren't using an APU.
>>
>>562091753
it looks FUCKING SHIT
>>
>>562091952
Not gonna upgrade CPU, this one is good enough.
Gonna downgrade to 1600 if you think so, the pricedifference is minimum though
Why not corsair?
I don't understand your comment on watercooling
>>
>>562091952
you're cool as fuck. corsair power supplies are beautiful and my 750 came in a black velvet drawstring bag with the corsair logo EMBROIDERED on it. a "standard" 1tb drive would by 7200 rpm rather than SSD.

intuition much?

>>
>>562091995
I'm not looking to overclock. I will see if there's any H97 in the price range

I don't have much experience with desktop building/assembling
>>
>>562092307
>Not gonna upgrade CPU, this one is good enough.
It's not even thirty dollars for a lot more power. Seriously, get a fucking $40 case and toss the rest into a 4690 and better GPU.
Corsair is shit, that's why it's cheap.
Watercooling is shit, expensive and dangerous.
>>
>>562091753
what is that cover over the mobo? Is it part of the water cooling system?
>>
OP is poor

>>562092523
It's one of those LEET boards for people with more money than sense.

It's a Sabertooth motherboard. They have a plastic "thermal shield".

I have no idea bro sorry just found it on google and thought it looked cool

>>562092572
yes

>>562092476
This sounds like a good idea. i will see if there's any 4690 cpus on danish sites
>>
>>562092314
>corsair power supplies are beautiful and my 750 came in a black velvet drawstring bag with the corsair logo EMBROIDERED on it
So did my Seasonic and NZXT. The difference is I can trust those to not burn my house down.
>>
>>562092708
Which one do you recommend then?
>>
>>562093084
Seasonic or XFX. I have no idea about NZXT's new line, mine is from the old one.

Look, what's your budget in what currency?

Well it would be around 1000$. But i'd like the 820 case. I think it looks cool.

please for the love of god just no fucking lights
>>
>>562093374
>I think it looks cool.
Stop that right fucking now. "Cool" doesn't give you performance.

No problem OP, that is a solid rig that you have decided to assemble. I own the same processor, no complaints. But if you can, try going for a R9 270 or GTX 660 TI instead of the 660.

Depending on your budget, you should buy a full size ATX case that's cheaper. There's plenty on newegg with great ratings.

You can afford to cheaper up a bit on the mobo.

Get a 760 ti instead of a 660.

You should up the clock rate on the CPU if you've money to spare.

RAM doesn't need to be more than 1600 MHz.

Get a modular PSU, it will make your final build a whole lot cleaner.

By standard 1TB, do you like one of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148840&cm_re=barracuda-_-22-148-840-_-Product? Then that's fine.

Get a 64 GB SSD when you can, you won't need more than that.
>>
>>562096615
>You should up the clock rate on the CPU if you've money to spare.
Clock rate means shit these days.
>>
>>562096615
thanks for your contribute

But what is a modular psu?
>>
>>562096746
>But what is a modular psu?
It means you can pick what cables you can attach so you don't have half of them in a coil in the bottom of your case. The one I gave you is semi-modular which is all you need. Full-mod is a waste of money.,
>>
>>562096848
I see. thanks.

Could you help me on partpickr, or are you still convinced that the one you sent me first is best?
>>
>>562096953
Definitely get a modular/semi-modular PSU, this guy>>562096848 is right.
>>
>>562096953
For the US market the one I sent is the best you're gonna get but since you're in Denmark and PCPP doesn't have a setting for that I have no idea.
>>
>>562097076
I think i can get the same parts, at roughly the same price, but not at these stores.
Any tweaks to http://pcpartpicker.com/p/H4Xfxr?
>>
>>562097170
Not really but I'll give you some advice if you can't find some of the parts.

>RAM
RAM is your dump stat. Brand doesn't matter, clock doesn't matter, as long as you have enough. 8GB is plenty, pick the cheapest one with good reviews and 9-9-9-24 timings.

>PSU
Semi-modular, Gold rated. Seasonic, XFX are the go too brands in the US, I've heard nice things about a euro brand called Superflower or something like that. You won't need more than 550-600watts.

>Case
Seriously, getting something in the 40-50 dollar range, mid tower, ATX with room for more fans.
>motherboard
See the black cubes around the socket with like 3 white characters one them? The more of those the better. Stick with Asus or Gigabyte, don't spend more than about $150. Get a Z97

Everything else you should be able to find okay.
>>
>>562097678
Personally I'd go with a full-sized ATX case. But depends on budget and whatnot since you'll have to drop ~100 or so for good one. Everything won't be so clumped together and if you decide to seriously upgrade your storage you'll have plenty of hdd bays to make up for it.
>>
>>562097678
thanks. That was the overview i needed of things.
>>
>>562097874
Mid towers are fine unless you get an actual tiny one. And putting more than ~3 HDDs in a single tower is pants on head retarded, they'll shake themselves to death and they fuck with your airflow bad.
>>
>>562091753
are you one of those new people that wants to spend more money on a case than they do on their gpu?. no stop it
>>
OP how much are you going to spend ?
I was thinking in buy a similar computer

but with a SSD disk drive
>>
>>562098084
changed my mind about the case
>>
switch to an AMD FX-8320 CPU
>>
>>562098150
around 1000$ bro
>>
>>562098390
No.
>>
>>562098390
Then i have to change motherboard too
>>
>>562098523
Don't listen to him.
>>
>>562098665
I'm not bro, i don't like AMD
>>
>>562098157
if you are building a budget system and it sounds like you are atleast go for a 750ti.
>>
>>562098760
$1000 isn't a budget system.
>>
My advice put a litle ssd for the so and a big one for porn.

$1000 will get you a PC that will play anything properly coded on ultra settings at 1080p at 60 FPS, especially if you skimp real hard on the case.

can i "upgrade" the case later, after i installed my components in a cheap ass case?

No, you're just a faggot with no concept of value. $1000 is not a budget. It's not top top tier but it's certainly not budget.

still not sure which one to get though, i know you linked some cheap one, but are there not any better ones for just a liiiiitle bit more money?

>>562099491
u allwasy can change the case but for me cases are just stetic shit

8GB 1600MHz Ram
Corsair CX600M, go modular. I purchased the CX600 3 weeks ago, within a day the fan started rattling constantly, got it replaced with a CX600M to keep things tidy. For the extra £10 (~$18?) it's worth it.
