Hello All, Just stumbled across this site the other while I was researching a new build. First off, I am not a gamer. Not looking to overclock. This is my first personal build. I have had several homemade builds, but a friend put my purchased components together for me.
After some research i came up with this list of hardware. Don't know if its overkill for dual monitors, web surfing, movie watching, remote access to my work PC & stuff like that. But I wanted a fast PC. Reliable. Worry free.
CPU - Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core OEM/Tray CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus or Zalman CNPS10X OPTIMA
Motherboard - Asus Z97-PRO(Wi-Fi ac) ATX LGA1150
Memory- Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
Storage - Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM
Video Card _Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB
Case - Corsair 400R ATX Mid Tower
Power Supply -Corsair 600W ATX12V
Optical Drive -Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer Samsung SH-224DB/RSBS DVD/CD Writer
Case Fan -Corsair Air Series AF120 Quiet Edition (2-Pack) 39.9 CFM 120mm (2 pair) Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition 67.8 CFM 140mm
Would I need a GPU with this mobo not being a gamer or video editor? Do I need a CPU cooler?
It roughly comes out to about $1064 using this site, but I plan on purchasing everything locally at a Micro Center store near me. If I go with this set up, do I have everything covered? Cables, controllers, etc? I would hate to have all this stuff in front of me & not able to finish it because I have to get something.
Any advice, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
