Build looks solid but why did you choose DDR3-1333Mhz and DDR3-2133Mhz RAM? Couldn't you just buy 2 x 8GB DDR3-1600Mhz RAM.

you realize you don't have a case and have two memory kits (one kit of 1333 and another of 2133)?

That 670 seems pretty expensive when you can get a gtx 780 for 50 bucks more

edit: if you only use a single 1080p monitor you can drop the GTX 770 down to a 2 GB VRAM model and save ~ $50.....added a case and optical drive to the build as well

I just noticed you don't have a Case or an Optical Drive

Case: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl

Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24F1ST

does it perform better?
many people don't prefer AMD for some reason that i still don't get. and will i still get the same performance with the GTX 770 gone?
thnx in advance

in terms of CPU performance, here are a couple of links showing the 8320 to be marginally better:

http://cpuboss.com/cpus/AMD-FX-8320-vs-AMD-FX-6300

http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/301/AMD_FX-Series_FX-6...

and here is a past post from THG:

http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1771974/6300-832...

and in terms of performance without the GTX 770, it would depend on what GPU you would use.

edit: Personally, I prefer Intel over AMD. However, AMD is usually the choice for budget builds.

Intel has stronger cores so games that are poorly optimized will always run better on intel. Amd has some great power in the fx 8350 for 170 bucks. And in games that are well optimized the amd will match or beat the intel. In reality 95% of games will play the same but games like planetside 2 or saints row 4 will always be better on intel. Both are pretty great.
Nvidia makes very good smoth playing cards but you have to pay for it amd will make cheapet cards that will get amazing frame rates but the nvidia will be slightly smoother. But you will not notice any difference in the majority of games. But your wallet will amd is a much better value most of the time.
