i would get a 770 4gb and with the rest pick up a ssd. the 780 is only 15% faster than the 770 and get an 840 pro ssd

i dont see the point of ever recommending a 4gb card when the GPU isnt even powerful enough to drive it

the point of recommending a 4gb card is because the current bf3 pushes almost 2gb of vram alone and with new games like gta v, and bf4 that will surely require more vram to be able to handle all of the properties going on in the game.

the GPU itself isnt powerful enough. there was barely any difference in performance between a 680 2gb and a 680 4gb even at a resolution of 5760x1080. the 770 is no different from that

Like the build but I live in England so no newegg or NCIX for me

Oh and do you think the wattage of the power supply enough for the build

love the build but way out my budget.

I was hoping to add an SSD later and forgot to say that I have also picked a monitor for my build and the total comes up to £1263 and I really don't want to go above that.

By the way I was wondering if I should ditch the monitor for an SSD and just hook the PC up to my TV and then get a monitor later

the monitor I have picked is Acer 23" H236HLbmjd IPS LED Full HD Monitor

and the TV I have is Samsung UE42F5500 Smart 42" LED TV

do not add a SSD to a system later on. its much harder to add a SSD to a hard drive system than adding a hard drive to a SSD system

So is that a yes to ditching the monitor because that is the only way I can think of getting the SSD without going over the budget

well ok then. keep the one you picked out. if you cannot afford it for now, using it with the tv shouldnt be a huge problem
