  1. Wheres the PSU and Case?
  2. psu is 800w and case is the In-Win G7 Mid-Tower Gaming Case w/ USB3.0 and EZ Swap HDD Dock
  3. What's the brand and model of the psu?
    Do you already have the psu and the case?
  4. Standard 80 Plus Certified Power Supply - SLI/CrossFireX Ready and i am about to order it off of cyberpwerpc.com so they will build it for me
  5. Any reason why you don't want to build it yourself? You can get a much better system for your money.
    I feel like that is a generic psu. That means it is low quality and I would highly recommend against it. A low quality psu has a higher chance to blow up on you.
  6. oh alright well if u could possibly tell me ur entire system? i really do not want to overpay.
  7. Budget?
    Do you need a monitor/os/keyboard/mouse?
    Are you overclocking?

    I can stir up a system for you after you answer those questions.
  8. haha alright. 700$. no monitor, 64bit windows 7 home premium,no mouse,no keyboard

    -Overclockable if you add a future aftermarket cpu cooler.
    -7870 is stronger than the 660

    I mean, this build isn't tons stronger but you get a better quality motherboard, case, psu.
