  1. Maybe a SSD? It looks pretty good though.
  2. I would avoid the CX series PSU. They use cheap caps with a high failure rate. The 550w XFX usually costs less and is higher quality. There is also no need for ddr3 2400 with a locked cpu.

    get a better quality power supply

    what i see is that your getting a z motherboard with a cpu that cant be overclocked and it will not let you sli
    if you only want 1 gpu and no overclocking you will probably get a better deal on a h motherboard

    about the motherboard thing I read this:
    "If you need CPU overclocking or SLI/Crossfire, then you are largely going to be limited to the Z97 chipset unless you do are willing to upgrade to a socket 2011 CPU. However, even if you don't need CPU overclocking or SLI/Crossfire, keep in mind that a motherboard with a Z97 chipset may still be the ideal choice for you.

    While the H97 may sound like the ideal chipset for the majority of our customers, we have found that the Z97 motherboards are almost always a better fit. Since Z97 is the top chipset, manufacturers tend to include ports and headers on those motherboards that are not on their H97 equivalent. Often times just a couple of additional ports can make the difference between a motherboard working for a customer out of the box or needing to use add-on PCI-E cards to get the proper functionality. These cards can give a customer the functionality they want, but they usually don't perform as well as onboard ports and add more points of failure which may lead to system instability. For that reason, we always recommend to get as much functionality as you can from the motherboard itself and only use PCI-E cards when absolutely necessary."

    I'm thinking adding one latter as it's too much money to spend at time

    Thanks for the opinion!
  6. would this be a better PSU? EVGA 600B 80+ BRONZE
    I have a little bit of limited range of choice as i wanted to buy everything in one shop, cause it's easier

    Actually the memories I am getting are this ones "GSKILL RIPJAW X 8GB DDR3 2133MHZ CL9 "

    You have ddr3 2400 with a CAS of 11 in the pcpartpicker link. Still the 2133 is overkill where there is no overclocking going on. The EVGA is a little better(but not much), it's not a unit designed to be used on a gaming rig. Never skimp on the PSU get something from tier 1 or 2 of the PSU tier list.

    The build looks great to me, besides a couple things that have been mentioned.

    1) Change the Z97 board to an H97
    2) Change the PSU to maybe an XFX or EVGA Bronze+ rated PSU.

    About the motherboards the thing is as I posted before I read this "While the H97 may sound like the ideal chipset for the majority of our customers, we have found that the Z97 motherboards are almost always a better fit. Since Z97 is the top chipset, manufacturers tend to include ports and headers on those motherboards that are not on their H97 equivalent." plus where i am buying the gigabyte H97 and the gigabyte Z97 cost the same

    About the psu i have already put my eyes into this one "EVGA 600B 80+ BRONZE" I also have put in consideration the "ANTEC HIGH CURRENT GAMER HCG-620" but it's a little bit more expensive and I don't know if I can put more money to the computer
  11. btw can anybody tell if there's any substantial difference between the EVGA GTX970 normal version and the Superclocked one?
  12. The superclocked has a higher clock speed(factory overclock)

    Since they are the same price then go for the Z97. Usually the H97 is just the option when trying to keep costs lower and not overclocking.
