  • Power/Moderate Gaming PC ($1200)

    I want to do a new computer build this summer. I want a computer that is very powerful and will play games smoothly(don't care too much about super ultra graphics) I am shooting for around $1200 for the computer and two monitors. These are the parts I am looking at:

    CPU: Intel Core i7-3770k 3.5GHz
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155
    GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB
    Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
    HDD: WD Caviar Blue 1TB
    SSD: Samsung 830 Series 128GB
    Case: COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer
    Power Supply: ROsewill 600W ATX12V
    Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer
    Monitor: 2 Asus VS228H-P 21.5"

    I am still new to the whole computer building so input or suggestions on alternative parts would be extremely appreciated. Also, will I have to buy additional fans.
