I'm building my first gaming computer and would like thoughts on components and expected obstacles when I start the build. Still waiting on the case and a couple other parts to arrive. I'm going to use this for WOW and would like to try Btlfd 3 and some other shooters.


COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Black RC-932-KWN3
Intel Core i7-2600K
Thermaltake Toughpower 850W W0172RU
Galaxy 1280MB GeForce GTX 570 Video Card
ASUS P8P67 PRO Rev-3.0 Intel LGA1155 P67 DDR3 6G/s SATA
Crucial M4SSd 128GB (Planning on adding an additional HD later)
16GB Corsair DDR3
Asus 12X Blu-Ray Writer
Windows 7 Home premium

I know this is kinda rag tag but I've had to shop around for awhile

Thanks for any advice!

You could save money on the processor by getting the 2600 if your not overclocking. There are better quality and efficient power supply other then the Thermaltake model like this. If you don't plan to SLI then this power supply would do.

Are you planning on working with Video or backing up a lot of data that you need a BluRay Burner?

I always sugest reading User reviews. I had poor luck with a LG 10X BluRay burner. 30% Coasters for example and picky what it would even burn.
I have and still am having good luck with a Pioneer 12X BluRay burner.
Much less picky with regards to blanks and seems to burn faster and so far no coasters, Knock wood.

Well for a gaming rig, it doesn't really need a Bluray writer. A standard DVD burner would do and you save a bit of money as well.
