Hello guys!

Thanks for the quick replies, looking at that i5 dream build now, where I will find the different parts and so on

as gnaji said, I only really need mobo, graphics card and processor (maybe new PSU as well, got 650w atm) and SSD.

This is a really nice build. There is only a few things I would change.

The MSI Z77 MPOWER is a good board but I have always used Asus boards and have never had a problem. I believe someone mentioned the Z77 Sabertooth. I have a friend who has one and he loves it to death, it is a great board.

I use Corsair Vengeance memory but G.Skill is also a great choice. For older cheaper builds I have also used Crucial memory which has just worked flawlessly.

For the power supply I would recommend Sea Sonic. They actually make PSUs for a lot of other companies like Corsair, Antec and Apple. Most of their power supplies are just rebranded Corsairs that are cheaper so I always recommend them.

Hope this helped and good luck!

Everything else is sound though mate

I have a MSI board there Bios is Nerfed unless you use the MSI overclocking program in the Bios you are just stuck at 1.449 volts and overclocking just sucks on them go with ASUS that is what I did

I have that MSI board as a back up so it won't be used for any extreme Oc but yeah MSI is not a good choice there boards hold back tons of potential
