so whats the best option if im not overclocking, more fan coolers or keep the onese case came with and get evo 212 (Agian I do play alot so.. ) I don't know much about computers... Im going to being using newegg videos/guides and google :P
Don't need an aftermarket unless you are really really nit pick about temperatures.
similar to yours except it has an internal drive.
The HIS is a good brand just sapphire/gigabyte is slightly cheaper also same or better cooling for lower noise level.
depends on where you live for the shipping/tax part. Newegg usually has free shipping but as for tax its another story.
Living near a microcenter will allow you to get a stronger cpu/motherboard combo for the same price.
it's all compatible. that's a good build. personally for a budget card i like the look of the nvidia cards, gtx 660 ti would be better imo, but if you want high end i like the 7970 better than the 680...
but that aside yes it will all work together lol
Sorry to keep bugging but would it be better to get a cheap cpu cooler like a 10dollar afkermarket (cooler master) and get a gtx 660?

cheap after market coolers tend to perform about the same as stock if this build is mostly Blizzard games LoL and what not a radeon 7850 should be than enough for it. If you are going to jump to 200+ video cards I would strongly recommend a 7870 especially since it has a game bundle, Tomb raider + BioShock.

The only thing that really bothers me with your build is that your motherboard supports usb 3.0 i/o but your case doesn't. Though if that's not an issue for you, then stick with what you've got. I chose Windows 8 because that's my personal preference, if you like 7 better, stick with that too.

ok.... so I should have been getting parts tomorrow but my father said he does not want me to build the computer! idk why lol I told him its cheaper etc tryed to explain what not he said he will give me like 50bucks more so I checked out cyberpowe pc and came up with these specs :
case: thermale take commander
mobo: [CrossFireX] GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3H Intel B75 Chipset DDR3 mATX Mainboard
cpu cooler: stock
8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory
500 Watts - Corsair CX500 V2 80 Plus Certified Power Supply
AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card
price is $848
problem is I don't know if the 500w is good enough for a 7870, I do play more then alot and want this to last etc with no heatproblems.. also there is non name brand 600w 80+ for -$21 but im not sure about it
