Gigabyte Ga-h97m-D3h Motherboard Compatible Components PSU, GPU, RAM, SSD, SSHD

I have build a new system and i have not completed it with GPU, SSD and PSU. i am still using a 4PIN PSU which is worst.

i need a suggestion on my build and guidance that i could build a PC on which i could play games continuously 10 to 12 hrs. when i start gaming i just don't want for the clock to 180degree. 4 to 5 hrs with Battlefield, Call of Duty, Need for Speed and others games seems like a 30mins.

so my current build is

Gigabyte GA-H97M-D3H Motherboard
Intel Core I3-4150 (2 Physical Cores, 4 Logical Cores) Processor
1 Crusial 4GB DDR3 1600MHZ Ram (No Heat sink)
1 Kingston 4GB DDR3 1600MHZ Ram (No Heat sink)
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM Hard Drive
1 Cooler Master Sickleflow 2000RPM Green Led Fan
IBall PSU 230Watts
Iball 3Fan Case


Now i want to updated it

  1. Best answer
    All 3 psus will do the job, they are just different qualities (with more expensive ones being better qualities of course) but even then, they are too large. As far as the GPU goes, 750ti is by far the weakest, 760 is better, 970 is the best out of those, but you might consider actually buying a new GPU in 1 month when the new generation is out.
  2. so which GPU would you recommend me
    the latest one is GTx 960 2gb or 4gb but i have read and view some negative reviews about that gpu in comparison of GTX 760 and 970.

  4. As I said, I would recommend waiting 1 month for the new gpus, current gpus are too expensive to be worth it, especially with new ones, better ones, coming in a month.

    ok then i wait for a new GPU to arrive

    i am also planning to buy a CPU Cooler

    Cooler master Hyper 212x

    Corsair hydro 100i Liquid Cooling
    http://www.corsair.com/en-in/hydro-series-h100i-extreme-performance-liquid-cpu-cooler

    since i am planning to make my computer for continuous gaming i think Liquid Cooling is much better. what do you say?
  6. The liquid cooler costs more than your CPU. That would be a pointless investment. It would be better to buy a better CPU instead of cooling. Your stock cooler is enough.
  7. I would highly recommend your GPU to be the 970. I use it for myself and dude there's no 2GB it's only 4GB. If you're referring to the 960 there are two versions of it, one 2GB and one 4GB. Both are GDDR5 but the best bang for your buck for a GPU is the 970. Suggest on getting a Strix or MSI.
    For the cooler, Liquid cooling is a good option but preferably I would choose air cooling. Probably because my paranoia and thoughts of dangers of a leak on a liquid cooling option.
  8. i will choose a RM750i or HX750i psu which both have 10 years warranty and Rmi series with Gold certified and 100% Japanese capacitors, HXi series with Platinum certified with 100% Japanese capacitors.

    so my question is that will both do a great job or as gingerbread told me these psu are too large so should i go to 550, 650 or this is quite perfect.

    one more thing that if i would buy a 750w psu and my current consumption is about 400w is that harmful or any issue running a psu or even i don't have graphic card and psu load is under 250w on a 750w psu is there any issue?

    i have asked this question because i would purchase all these graphic card, ssd, hyperx 212, pc case one by one.
