    Sounds like an awesome build, GL. That i5 will last you several years, and will still allow a modest overclock if you feel the need to. Have you picked a case?

    Nice but I would look in to a 6 core Intel since games are getting more..... use to it.

    Gpu is nice but was it more than the processer

    No. No one needs a six core intel just for gaming. There are hardly any games that take advantage of that, not to mention the price. It would be pointless, and make no sense given the cost of the rest of his components. An i5 3470 is basically a 3570k with a lower clock speed and less overclocking capabilities. You can't find a game that will need more than that, especially not in single-GPU gaming.

    Not yet, I have failed to find one with nice aesthetics and good cooling.

    I may be able to help. What size are you looking for? Full tower, mid, etc. ?

    I'd be looking for a full tower, need space just in case I ever want to upgrade.

    Jew and Insane.Dragon here, are the best at PC builds.

    for a heat sink i'm going liquid, but you should go with a hyper 212 evo

    btw i would get a better PSU use this
    http://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell...age-Calculator

    I would say get higher than what it says

    I recommend Cooler Master cases, they have some great full towers: http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/cate...e=Full%20Tower

    I have the Storm Stryker, and I love it. Very well put-together case.
