  1. By all parts picked out do you mean you have bought them already or just selected them as I believe the gtx 760 is much better for the money than 660 ti.

    Reguarding cpu I would sugguest getting an i5 ivy bridge, but an i3, fx 6300, or phenom ii 945 BE would be as low as I go.
  2. Best option would be a 6300FX in my opinion.

    Oh and yes, DEFINITELY go for a GTX760 instead
  3. by that i mean i have them picked not bought and thanks for the suggestion any more xD

    I rarely recommend AMD CPUs these days, but the 6300 is a solid choice. I'd take one over an i3 for gaming. Especially. if you are willing to overclock the amd 6300 would be a solid choice.
