    I just found this out, but one problem w/ ur build is that its $1330, anyway to make it cheaper? also would a getting a 760, 280x, or an 270x be better ?

  11. 1. It's not that much cheaper.
    2. Better stock speed means nothing when comparing two different brands. AMD has single core performance compared to Intel.
    3. Overclocking is over-rated. If you go with Intel you won't need to overclock.
