    Hi people, I'm building a custom rig for my personal use. I've already picked out the components which are:-

    MotherBoard - ASUS P8B75-M LE

    Processor -Intel 3.4 GHz LGA 1155 Core i5 3570K
    RAM - G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 4 GB (F3-12800CL9S-4GBXL)
    Hard Drive - WD Scorpio Blue 500 GB (WD5000LPVT)
    Power - Seasonic S12II 520 Watts PSU
    Optical Drive - HP dvd1260i
    Video Card - Asus NVIDIA GeForce EN210 1 GB DDR3
    Cabinet - Corsair 300R
    OS - Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64

    I just wanted to figure out whether the parts are compatible with each other and would I need some extras to complete the rig [I'm doin' this for the 1st time]. So please help me out.

    Note:-I'm on a budget here. So please recommend me good but affordable parts. Thnx in advance!!

    Hi..

    That case has a lot of room for the high end graphics card. So buying that case is definatly future proof and not a bad price either.
    In that case you might want to splash out a little bit more cash and buy the
    Asus GeForce GTX 650 DirectCU 1024MB .
    This is a good looking,good spec card and affordable too. Around £100...Not bad when you think some cards cost hundreds and hundreds...

    Yep..Good choice on your case..

    Thnx Man!! I'll definitely follow your advice. I looked up at the Asus P8Z77-V LX and its really a good alternative! But as per the graphics card, pls recommend me a slightly affordable on as I'm on a budget here. I don't want to do high-end stuff like overclocking, etc and as I'm using it only for a general use, I'll stick with 4 gigs instead of 8. And I've edited the post with a new processor. Pls tell your review.
    Once again, Thnx for advising me. :biggrin:

    I ordered Counter Strike:Global offensive through them by Cash on Delivery. They are blazing fast as they delivered the game to me in 2 days! They also provide their own warranty besides the product's. It is really a good site for purchasing!

    Nope, I already have a Windows 7 AIO x86 x64 SP1 that I made myself with MSDN copies [I don't have a subscription, got them off TPB]. I'll just activate it with the Daz Loader.

    I'm really Happy to announce that I recently got a Intel Core i7 3770K [3.5 GHz] Processor from my cousin living in Georgia. Its blazing fast I'll use it instead of the i5.
