  1. I'd recommend a 660ti over the 660. The difference is considerable. Ti is basically where the "gaming" grade hardware in the 600 series starts. Also would recommend a faster HDD than a caviar green for your main drive.

    I don't know anything about that mobo offhand, sorry. I would still really recommend putting your build off at least until the 660ti would be a possibility.
  4. i would change two things first he has already said it the gpu 660ti instead of 660 and the second thing get a 1tb hdd and a ssd it really gives a boost pt ur os and the games u play the most.

    Yeah, that motherboard is fine.

    But seriously, you will want a faster hard drive. The Caviar Green ones are designed to be more power friendly, which makes them really slow. Your boot up time and game load times will be terrible with a HDD like that. Get a 7200RPM HDD, or better yet, get a SSD and a HDD.

    Bro but i think it will not enhance game performance, the only work it'll do is that it'll help boot-up fast and start-up or loading screens of games, etc.....but i think it will not enhance in-game fps.....PLEASE REPLY

    Unless the game has streaming textures, you're right. Some games stream textures from the HDD, and you won't increase fps but you can potentially reduce pop-in with an SSD, but even then this is not always the case. Despite the hype, SSD's best impact is in bootup and OS-function operating time, and loading screens in games that have those that you actually install on your SSD.
  9. will here be any heating problem as i'll be using the stock cooler and heatsink which will come with the processor

    Nope. Unless you are overclocking the stock stuff is fine.
  11. kk..................i want to run all games at ultra.....super smooth
  12. You need like a GTX 680 or HD 7970 to max out every game. If you want to max out most games you'll want the 660Ti.
