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.

The 7950 is slightly better. Barely. But I would get a gtx760 over both for that price.
