I would go for a GTX 660Ti. In terms of the PSU, get a Corsair CX600. Also, I would either get very cheap speakers, or save up until you can get nice ones. Other than that, nice build! :)

Thanks for the advice man!
The GTX 660 TI, are you talking about the ASUS one? I looked it up on pcpartspicker and theres an MSI one too. Is it just a different brand selling it or is there one that performs better than the other. As you can tell im kinda new to pc gaming... been with consoles all my life.

You need a quality PSU for that nice build

Get this XFX made by Seasonic ^ The Corsair CX Series is for budget builds


They are practically the same thing, except one is cheaper. The Corsair CX600 is (IMO) a fine power supply for a build like this, and is also $40-$50 cheaper.
