    Gaming Rig Just right?


    I didn't know where to put this thread so I put it in gaming.
    I'm saving up for some parts to build a Gaming Rig but I'm unsure weather everything is compatible and i it will run really fast.
    Here are the specs:

    Intel Core i5-4690K, EVGA GeForce GTX 970, Corsair SPEC-02 - System Build - PCPartPicker

    Thank you in advance.

    First thing that stands out to me is I would not go with minimum PSU. Not the place to try and save a few bucks. Also if a big gamer may be better off with a smaller SSD (128GB) just for OS then a 7200rpm spinner for your games.

    Though I agree with going with a spinner HD for gaming needs, preferably a 2TB, I see nothing wrong with staying with a 500gig SSD drive. This is basically my combo. See my system specs. Also with a 500gig SSD drive there's no need to split up the base OS file system - My Docs, Pictures, Music, etc...

    BTW why are you (the OP) buying a network adapter? Does your motherboard not come with one?

    I don't know. This is my first build so I'm not sure. I got rid of it and thanks popeye! It's now cheaper than it was before. Any other recommendations?
