Can somebody build me or tell me if this custom desktop build is any good?

Question by AceS: Can somebody build me or tell me if this custom desktop build is any good?
I’ve had many issues with my HP so I want to build my own custom desktop for gaming (primarily) and multimedia. Can you please tell me if this build is any good and if there is anything better? My max limit is $ 2000. I would also like to able to use this pc to last me for a couple years. You can find all of these components on Thank you.

It’s great, if you use the computer a lot you should consider getting a larger hard drive, but that’s about it. Looks like you’ve done your research!

    It is great that you have choice to build your own computer. It seems like the built is great and you don’t need to change anything. However you need to add somethings. get a good HEATSINK as that will cool off your cpu and allow it to last longer, also you can really get that cpu to 4ghz if u overclock. Also get external TB drive, i will explain why. It keeps your computer running faster if u have an external drive and only use the main drive for the operating system. Also if u ever so happen to come across a problem where u are force to re install the operating system. Everything is saved on the external drive and all u have to do is reformat the internal drive. Your build is great. im pretty sure u can build one for less than $ 1200.

    There is always something better but I believe you have picked a very balanced as well as fast system. be a better choice imho. The EVGA also has a lifetime warranty. You register the card online which usually entails filling out a short form, entering in your serial # which can usually be found on your GFX card’s box or on the back of your card and uploading a copy of your receipt/invoice. Another possible issue that I see with your card is the fact that it is not a closed design. This means that VERY hot air that it will be exhausting will be exhausted right into your case. notice the edges of the fins. Do you see the fins on the evga or anything which suggests an open design? Nope. EE. External exhaust. Your RAM heatsink as well as your CPU cooler ( may I suggest since the Intel stock heatsink is not at all good. ) have enough to worry about then to have to deal with another piece of hardware. Did I mention the EVGA while getting a HIGHER satisfaction percentage at Newegg, a higher sales rate and is STILL less expensive. Other than that I think you are at a very good place. You might want to stick with the Asus memory QVL located here . While the DOMINATOR a kick** RAM the G.Skill isn’t a slouch by any means. The timings are the same as is the amount and the speed. The only difference is that ASUS tested the G.Skill RAM and approved it. I chose G.Skill over many other brands on my QVL because of many other user reviews as well as the fact that I want to reduce the possibility of errors as low as possible. So far my choices have resulted in stable Prime 95 testing as well as no issues whatsoever with crashing or BSODs.
