Its a working build but it has one problem. 64GB isnt going to cut it. I recommend you to buy a hard drive to go along with that. (At least 1TB). Also, i would recommend a minimum of 120GB for an SSD, because the operating system will take a large chunk of that SSD

Thanks for your advice. I will go with what you have said, but except for that problem will it run games well?

I agree about getting data drive 1T. Here is a great ssd if your budget allows.

Do not install the data drive until the os is installed on the ssd. Get windows 7 64 bit if you can. 8 Stinks!!!


Ok, thanks. I'll go with 7

I have 2 of the samsungs and they rock. Comes with samsung magician software to tweak performance. Windows 7 is just hands down better than 8 in my opinion.

Build looks good but I am no gpu expert. From what little research I just did, the 270x uses amd's mantle api so it should run it just fine.
