    Could Somebody Check My Build?

    Hello, I'm new to PC Custom Building and could use some advice.

    Is my setup decent and work alright?

    Link: Intel Core i5-3570K, Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670, Cooler Master Silencio 550 (Black) - System Build - ************ United Kingdom

    I decided to move to a GTX-670 FTW as I had the spare money. However it doesn't show the FTW model on the partlist.

    Thanks!

    Everything good but you might want to update that video card to the next version they have available.

    you good except i would advise you don't pick that cooler get a Hyper evo 212 instead it's really great for it's price. also just so you know you might want to get a ATX motherboard instead of a micro ATX one because there cheaper.

    depends on what kind of case you want. micro is (i think) fits in those mini pc cases... not sure though.

    Size and functionality basically. More PCI slots with an ATX. More room for upgrading. Double check your Case specifications to make sure it can support an ATX motherboard, and also look at the dimensions, you want a bit of room for it to breath so the fans can properly expel the heat. You don't want to have a mobo that takes up the entire case.

    just that they usually have worse integrated components and that the motherboard that you went with only has one 6 gb/s port and also only has 2 ram spots

    With that mobo you will be able to CrossfireX two Radeon GPU's together, but you will not be able to SLI two Nvidia GPU's together, if that is a feature you are thinking about using.
