First computer build, please give your input
 
Hello Tech forums, as you might be able to see this is my first post. Now to get back on subject, i would like to ask you all for your input for these parts that I've lined up for my first computer build. It will be for gaming, a Battlefield like game with only vehicles. I need to keep it low, because im not buying it my self. It may be a birthday gift ;)

public wishlist

Thanks!

I would downgrade that 3550 to a 2500k and beef up the graphics a little.

While that is a good power supply, Its not large enough to provide future upgrades to beastlier gpu's, fans and cooling.

I'd recdommend a 600/650W psu for a gaming rig, but if you have no future plans, or always buy new psu's don't worry bout it.

I also agree with PP. the 2500k is a smarter option, as you camn overclock it when it starts getting slow.

yes thanks. the 2500k is only in sandy bridge (desnt matter) and costs more then the other one i have plus it bundles with the motherboard and gets 20 bucks off

That case is fine. You are going to need more power coming from that PSU.
