Well my computer i built was only in the $500 range. I have in my build is a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3, AMD FX-4100, AMD Radeon 7750, Allied 300 watt psu (this psu has worked great in imo) 2X4GB 1066 DDR3 G.skill a 1TB 7200 RPM Seagate HDD, and a Apevia X-dreamer3 case and Windows 7.

Even though my build is better, but since you said you DO NOT DO NOT want to go over the budget of 650 dollars, you can scrap the r9 270x for your Gigabyte 660.. and save your 60 dollars there to get 624 dollar deal.

My build has a 3 year new CPU than yours with possibilities to upgrade your GPU ....

And it has a 500W power supply so you won't have to upgrade your power should you decide to upgrade your GPU in future.

It's a win win situation at all counts, even if you reject my GPU and go for your GPU.

hi this is a very good build and i wouldent change much although you may want to get a smaller case as you are only using a mATX mother board and a smaller case would make it easier to mover and it can fit in tighter spaces but if you like the asthetics of this case then by all means get it.

but if you do get a smaller cheaper case you could get an after market heatsink fan witch will make your temperature better. you may need to get a low profile one beacuse you may not have enough clerance in your case

Just realized he was asking about his build. :p  Your build you created is very good. The CPU and GPU are great. The mid-tower case is perfect imo. I have the Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 in my mid-tower and it works perfectly, and has enough room for everything else as certain things can get in the way.

Looks good, just I don't do rebates.

Yeah, looks good!
One thing: Your motherboard only supports RAM up to 1333 MHZ and your selected RAM is 1600 MHZ.
it would still work, only the ram would work on 1333 MHZ, wich is a loss of around 300 MHZ.
If there is cheaper RAM at 1333, choose that and put the saved money in different parts of your build.
Good luck!
