Welcome to the motherboards.org...

The only thing I would question would be the PSU... What brand is it? For a gaming machine like that, I would have at least 850w which is certified 80+ Gold or platinum and is branded, ie Corsair, OCZ, Antec etc..

As for the headset, I heartily recommend any by turtle beach - the more you pay the better the quality (background hiss, bass etc)...

psu

The psu is from corsair.I thought 760 w is gd enough?Also,overclocking the cpu barely gains performance in gaming,so perhaps change the cooler to hyper 212+.Btw i wonder if i were to sell this as a all in one gaming pc, i wonder whether i would get some profit XD.



LOLOLOL,cos im only 14...

Agree with Mr T:

Just $20 up compared to the 760, this is a no-brainer. Even though they make things very easy this days, I'd stay with aircooling if this is your very 1st system build.
