I think you should spend a few bucks more and get the hop to build it and test it for you. It will cost a bit more but save your life.




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Its fine, everything will fit. It is a big case. Skip the arctic cooling cooler, it won't be better than the stock one
Have fun, take it slow and you will be fine. Just double check all your power connections and make sure that everything is hooked up correctly.
Before installing Windows, make sure that the sata mode in the bios is set to AHCI mode instead of ide, will help a bit with disk speed and the SSD drive.

I assume this is a copy/paste from your shopping cart, if so where do you intend to buy these parts from?

Impressive characteristics, but I think monitor should be a bit better for this class of the gaming system.

Are you planing on overclocking that CPU?

Also, make sure you go for a 64bit OS, otherwise you may as well not put 16Gig of RAM in there :)

If I were you I would take a serious look at Computer Lounge.

The guys name there is Billy,

They can build, test, OC and still give you a warranty on all work. They should also match PB price or beat it.

The Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 GT CPU Cooler UCACO-P1600-GBA01 is for AMD CPUs only.  I suggest a Noctua NH-U12S if you going for air cooling.

I'd recommend a hyper 212 evo, much better value for money with very close to identical performance when compared to the top of the line coolers costing 2-3x the price.

An aftermarket cooler is only needed if you are overclocking. If you are not overclocking then the one that comes with the CPU is fine (and is actually quite a good cooler).  However I assume you plan to overclock the hardware striaght after you buy it otherwise you are basically throwing away money getting K series CPU + overclocking motherboard.

Also I would spend less on the box and more on the monitor, 1080P is WAY too low resolution for that PC. 3GB GPU + low resolution monitor also doesn't make sense.

Suggest you buy something similar to this (or parts at a similar level)

and then something similar to this

You might (?) want to have a look at the AMD R9 290X.

Also 16GB memory will be wasted unless you do graphic design/web design etc. Operating system and games only need 4GB.

4GB is a thing in the past, especially with BF4. Stay with 16gb ram. As someone said above, get rid of the custom cpu cooler. everything else looks fine should be easy to set up.

edit: get computer lounge or playtech to beat their prices, pb tech aren't the best in terms of after sales support IMO
