Feedback on potential build parts selected

Hello. Can you help me with feedback on a potential list of part's I'm looking into ordering for my future gaming rig. I've done a lot of research and everything seems compatible.

I mainly only play Counter Strike GO. This build is $777 on newegg (also all the parts have free shipping). If you have any recommendations to shed of additional cash too please let me know.

  • Case: Cooler Master HAF 912
  • Mobo: ASRock Z87 Extreme4 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4670 Haswell 3.4GHz (Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper TX3)
  • Video:ASUS GTX750TI-OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB
  • RAM:G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
  • PSU:Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W
  • Storage:Western Digital WD Black WD5003AZEX 500GB 7200 RPM

If I'm missing anything important, please let me know. Though I believe I've covered all parts I need.

Edit: Changed mobo. Previous was not compatible with 4670

Seems decent enough but this is what I come up with for cheaper (all newegg parts):

Will be a solid gaming system for a good while. If the budget where a touch bigger than intel i5's would be a viable option but the bang for buck that the fx series represent is really good.

Thank you for your help. Taking the advice from your build, what would you think of this?

Thats a big price difference.... $200 odd bananas

Highly advise against the slow 5400rpm laptop hdd. 

TX3's arent much better than stock coolers, just too small. I have one on an old system and its woeful to say the least.

The very best I can come up with at your new price bracket.

PSU dropped down as the 750ti uses next to nothing and the rest of the build uses bugger all as well.

Be advised though that the HAF 912 unless its the latest "advanced" model it doesnt have front usb3 ports.

You could go cheaper again - FM2 cpu (750k) + cheap mATX board, but unless you like the look of a small motherboard in a large case its kinda hard on the eyes if you stick to the HAF912. There is ATX fm2 boards but the price would gobble up the money saved on going to the lesser platform (& the cheap ECS boards aren't worth the silicon they're printed on).


Tried to fit a better motherboard that can support an 8 core CPU.  The board I picked has a nice 8+2 power phase design, so if you want to upgrade to an FX-8350, you can.
