Parts List suggestions? (PC virgin)

Part List: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1kWJi

I chose most of these based of the case. Any suggestions?

Also, any thoughts on saving $25 for a 650Ti Boost over superclocked 660?

Thanks :D

    I know nothing about clock speeds so I didnt know if downgrading to 3470 would be ok, but im def open to making this guy cheaper.

    I chose the gtx 660 since its valuable, but mainly because it has rear exhaust. i dont think the ft03 mini case
    would go well with a gpu with dual fans like that since it has no intake on the side.

    And i chose the PSU because again, the case is compatible with SFX type psu only i believe.

    So yeah i want this to be cheap, but I really like the ft03 mini which is why I can't make this exactly the way I want or see fit.

    Thanks for the input!

    Clock speeds basically determine how fast the processor is (There's other factors as well but let's keep it basic). With the 200mhz difference, you will only notice maybe a 1fps difference.
    Good call on the gpu and psu.
    Here's a blower style 7870: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/his-video-card-h787q2g2m
    The IceQ design is a bit large (2.3 slots compared to the usual 2slots) but it's definitely faster than the 660.

    I saw that card too, but unfortunately the ft03 mini can only accommodate a gpu of 10 inches length max :C
    I realize im sacrificing some performance/value in order to use this case but I js really like it lol.
  4. Seems like you did your research. Everything looks good, just switch the cpu to a 3470.
