Hello guys, I just made this config for a new pc that I pretend to buy next week. It's focused in gaming, but first I need your opinion to know if it is a good config or what I can do to improve it. The prices are overpriced because I'm from Brazil =/. I can't spend more than that, it's already over my budget. Here it is:

-Processor i3 3220 -> $165,00
-MB GigaByte for Intel GA-B75M-D3H -> $87,00
-GPU GTX 660 TI -> $434,00
-RAM 2x4gb ddr3 kingston -> $115,00
-hdd 1 tera 7200 rpm -> $124,00
-power supply corsair 500w -> $121,00
-case -> $78,00

TOTAL: $1124,00

I suggest that you should get a 7970 instead of the 660ti (pretty much similar in price)
The processor is really poor, it most likely bottleneck the 7970 (and the 660 ti) so i suggest that you get an AMD FX 8320 and dont forget to choose another AM3+ Mobo. The cpu is a little more, but trust me its WAY better and you will completely avoid any bottlenecks

I just found a "MSI GTX670 Power Edition 2GB GDDR5, 256Bits PCIe 3.0 N670 PE 2GD5/OC - BOX" for $434,00!

I wish I could get the 7970... the price gap here is about $150... I'm going with gtx 670 power edition + fx 8320, and I need to know if this Mobo is enough:

ASUS p/ AMD AM3+ M5A78L-M LX/BR Box, c/ Anti Surge, Core Unlocker, Turbo Key

Oh sorry, in uk 7970 and 670 are similar in price. Yes the mobo has a AM3+ socket so it will be perfect.
