Last opinions before purchase?!?!

Here is my parts list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/vcTt4D Need any opinions before i buy (thinking about buying it tomorrow). Also, is a wireless adapter (for wifi) needed for this build if im going to be using wireless internet? Is a sound card needed for this build? Any way i could improve this build? (without raising the price too much), preferably lowering the price with about the same performance.

You can do this research yourself =)

Google your motherboard: https://www.google.com/search?q=M5A99X+EVO+R2.0+onboard+audio&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb

Look up the specs... does it have built in audio / sound card? If yes then you do not need an additional sound card.

Then look to see if it has a built in wifi / wireless network adapter. If no then you will need to buy a seperate wireless card.

You can get the same graphics card by Sapphire. Power Color tends to get a bad wrap. I've always had good luck with Sapphire. Up to you really; not a huge deal.

You can get CAS 7 RAM for the same price: G.Skill F3-10666CL7D-8GBRH http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f310666cl7d8gbrh

Are you going to overclock it? If not then you don't need a cooler. They come with fans that are rated for the stock CPU settings.

It's the only way you'll learn =)

Yeah; it's a nice build for that price point. We're just talking tweaks here.

Also, im not gonna be overclocking as soon as i build my pc. I might wait a few months. So do you recommend buying the cpu cooler now or waiting until i actually want to overclock?

If you truly intend to OC later... get it now, build it with the cooler, and be done with it.

I know for me... I've had aftermarket coolers laying around... I never get around to tearing down and putting them on. The rig is up, running solid, and I'm happy with it.

Only those with the true enthusiast personality tear their working rigs apart for the sake of squeezing that extra bit of performance. That's what they are into; it's part of the fun. So if that's not you... do it NOW when it's all going together. Then when you want to clock it up; it's ready to go.

If you like playing with hardware and fussing around with stuff you break because you wanted to tinker with it.. then do it later.
