OK so this is my build. I just wanted to make sure that all the parts will work together and that it looks pretty good. Than you very much for looking, I look forward to hearing from you guys.

What exactly will your computer be used for and what is your budget? Everything looks good, you can save some money by changing some parts around, but it will work.

Everything looks fine but i have a feeling that you are gonna overclock that 3770K because of the MSI MPower board which can overclock pretty well. If this the case, i would definitely bump up the cooling to a H100 or a Noctua NH-D14 as the H60 can not handle the high temperature of the CPU.

This will be a gaming build. My budget is probably at absolute max 1500 but I would like to save a little money. Oh, and thanks, I will go up to the H100. What speed do you think I can get the processor to with the H100?

With games, the graphics card is taxed much more heavily than the CPU, you could reduce the CPU and use that money for a different GPU.

An alternative hardware configuration would be this...

Motherboard: ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 - This is a flagship motherboard for AM3+ systems and is comparable to the one you've chosen. The only difference is with PCI-Express X16 speeds in SLI/Crossfire. The Sabertooth has faster speeds with two slots occupied. $189

CPU: AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz - This will not equal the same amount of performance as your chosen CPU, however, for games, it is still quite good as games are more GPU bound. This is still a good processor. $219

GPU 1: XFX FX-795A-TNBC Radeon HD 7950 Black 3GB - $319

GPU 2: HIS H797F3G2M Radeon HD 7970 3GB - $389

GPU 3: XFX Double D FX797GTDFC Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition - $454

All of the above GPU's are more powerful than a 7870, plus, AMD has a number of pack-in's that add much more value to the card.

You should be able to get 4.6GHz easily on the MPower board but you probably can get a bit higher if you manually tune it.
