  1. Best answer
    Using APU with a dedicated video card is a waste of money. Drop the APU and FM2 board and get an AM3+ board and atleat a Fx-6300. 16Gb is overkill for gaming 8gb is more than enough. The 600w "standard" PSU makes me shudder, I bet they use a cheap pile of garbage for a "standard" power supply. Not sure how much you are paying but you would most likely be better off building it yourself.
  2. How much are you paying for this?

    6600K + HD7970 is a HORRIBLE idea...

    US dollar?

    You need to give us information for us to help you.

    Where can you purchase on? Newegg USA?

    Do you need windows?
    Do you need a monitor?
    Will you be overclocking?
  6. Hell, this is soooo much better. You can even add an SSD, an i7 AND 16GB of RAM and STILL pay less than what you got there.
