Is this a good build???
So I'm going to end up building my first computer in about a month and I need the experts of the computer world to help me make the best decisions. Ive done my share of research when it comes to the components and their capabilities, but I still have doubts. So far this is what I have put together-
Intel i5-2500k Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz----------$220
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Intel Motherboard ----------$120
Cooler Master HAF 912----------$60
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB(2x4GH) 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC2 12800) Desktop Memory---$50
Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W, 80Plus Certified Single 12vRail, Active PFC, Power supply--$60
Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103ST 1TB 7200 RPM 32 MB Cache SATA 3.0 Gb/s 3.5 Internal Hard Drive-bare drive--------$100
Asus 24x DVD Burner-OEM----------$10
Nippon Labs Premium 18" (1.5ft) SATA II cable with lotching latch (x2)----------$10
EVGA GeForce GTX 550ti (Fermi) FPB Viceo Card---------$125
Grand Total-------$765 (without OS or monitor)
I am a bit unsure with the graphics card. I'm not sure if I should just go for the gold and upgrade to the 560ti, thing is that iv'e heard that the 550ti runs great and the 560 doesn't make a big difference for the extra $100 extra. Also the monitor I plan on using is an old one that I've had since 2006 and I hope its compatible, if not I'm just going to hook it up to my TV via HDMI.
Hope you guys can give me some concrete feedback and criteria
Thanks for the help
