    In your shoes, I would drop the dual 660s and grab a single 770 or 7970. Better upgrade path. I would also trash the Cooler Master (or as they are affectionately known around here, Crapper Master) PSU for a SeaSonic, Antec, Corsair, or XFX PSU, drop the HAF X down to a NZXT Phantom 410, get a standard optical drive, unless there's some reason you need that one, and use the resulting savings to get an Intel Core i7-4770k and ASRock Z87 Extreme4.
  4. What would you prefer, i7 or AMD

    The i7 is a superior processor, but it's also more expensive.

    Wait a tic, aren't you the OP of the "Building a PC less than $1500" I've been contributing to? Are you aware that you're only supposed to have a single thread for your build?
  6. No i am not aware, i shall close this thread and ill move over to the other thread :D
