This build is a budget build, hoping to run alot of todays current games on at least medium-high. If you have any suggestions/feedback it would be appreciated if you posted below. If you can find any parts for a better price/performance, tell me. :p

It's pretty good, but you could also have a Radeon 7870, which will perform a lot better than the 660.

Good system for the price.

- Take not that you have an micro-ATX board in a ATX case. You could either change your case to a micro-ATX one or pick an ATX motherboard.

- I wouldn't go with a Corsair CX for your supply. They are cheap and tend to break a lot. Instead, choose one from a widely trusted brand in power supplies such as Seasonic or XFX. Anything from these two brands will perform way better.

- There are not a big difference in price between the GTX 660 and the GTX 760. Because you are tight on budget, I also suggest you take a look at the new R9 cards from AMD. They should perform better for the price.

Have fun building !

Unless you've already changed the case, the one in the build at the moment can support both atx and micro atx motherboards so it's fine. You could switch it for this one, as yours doesnt have front panel usb 3.0 whereas the motherboard does. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-s210e001
