Hello, it's been awhile since I've posted here but since I'm in the market for a new computer I thought I'd run this build by you guys so I could get some feedback on it.

Here's what I came up with:


Case - HAF912 - http://www.microcenter.com/product/3..._Computer_Case

CPU - i5 2500k - http://www.microcenter.com/product/4...rocessor_-_OEM

GPU - Sapphire 7870 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814202010

PSU - Antec 520W - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371030

RAM - 8GB Crucial - http://www.microcenter.com/product/3...ory_Modules%29

HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB - http://www.microcenter.com/product/3...3_-_Bare_Drive

MOBO - ASRock z77 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157297

Heatsink - Coolmaster Hyper 212 Evo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103099

Optical Drive - LiteOn - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106276

OS - Windows 7


Overall I'm very pleased with it. I'm getting the CPU for very, very cheap I think. I was originally going to go with a 560 Ti but I was given a tip to go with the 7870 instead. Also, I'm aware that the 7870 is currently out of stock, they were having a pretty nice sale on it on Newegg.


Anyhow, any advice/feedback would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

EDIT: Actually on second thought they may have actually discontinued that card. Uh oh
