New gaming pc build

So I am looking for a new gaming pc. I want a gaming pc $900 and under, absolutely no higher. I need it to include a os, minimum 1tb HDD, a intel cpu. And the gpu needs to be at least a 660ti (performance wise). I do not plan on overclocking either so I don't really need a k-series CPU. Any help would be appreciated.

  3. Which would be better? A 660ti or 7950?
  4. Best answer
    The 7950 is slightly better. Barely. But I would get a gtx760 over both for that price.
  5. 660Ti vs 7950, yeah 7950 is slightly better:

    7950 vs GTX760, they are pretty similar depending on the game ofcourse:

    You have to take into account that the 7950 costs $50 less than the GTX760!
