  1. everything is good except the video cards. go with a single video card like a 270x or gtx 760 if you want a good mid-high range card
  2. Looks good, but I'd grab this RAM instead:
    Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($76.99 @ Newegg)
  3. Too much on the RAM and PSU for what you'll be doing, save money there and put more into the gpu.
  4. Thanks for your comments, I will save some money to change the video card. Should I choose the cheapest 760 there is or should I worry about the clock speed?
  5. Go for an EVGA if you can, they are close to the top when it comes to performance, and have absolutely the BEST customer service in the computer components business.
  6. Don't worry about clock speed, just get the cheapest card that has an asus, evga or msi cooler on it.
  7. I agree..If looking for 760..buy MSI or Asus.

    I changed some things to create room in your budget for a better gpu,

    is the case,ram and psu which is good for single gpu build.The case is a personal thing so choose one that you like.
    You could look for the next gpu's for instance,

    i also chose the 120gb version of your ssd for $12,- more.a bargain for double the amount of storage.

    Did you already own the two hd 4870's?
  9. Ah, I own a Radeon HD 4870x2 Video Card. PCPartPicker didn't have it so I put two of the 4870.

    If you want to use that one and it works good for you so you could save the money to get a better card later on that's fine of course
  11. If you already have both gpu's use them both and happy gaming. your rig will still be pretty fast for the games you want to play :)
  12. Thanks for your answer guys, I will think of buying a GPU when my 4870x2 dies,
  13. If possible, I'd sell off the 4870s and get one decent 2/3gb GPU instead. Less heat and less power needed too.
