That way you will not stress the PSU as much while gaming. Wireless mice usually lag a little longer than a nice wired gaming mouse, but I do like that keyboard for both gaming and typing. I am not convinced the GTS 680 is worth the extra money over the 670. Check benchmarks and reviews and decide for yourself though. Other than that, it looks like you have done some research as the rest of the build looks good. Good luck with the build. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
