My first ever computer build I decided to go with the i5-3570k because it is a famous CPU for gaming. For the motherboard I decided to go with highest lga 1155 rated board on newegg the asrock extreme 4. I did rearch found that the evo was the highest rated cooler out there. Wanted to go with 8gb as the standerd for gaming ram. Got a ssd for a boot drive with. 1tb hard drive for everything else. Got the last gtx 660 gta model on amazon. The nzxt phantom 410 for its sexiness. A 550 watt from seasonic and windows 7 since 8 sucks.
