hey guys, I was wondering if anyone can give me a quick yay or nay on this build. I'm aiming to keep below a budget of under $1k including the tax and shipping. Any advice or criticism would be greatly appreciated.

it looks pretty good but for the same price a samsung spinpoint f3 hdd would be faster and for an extra $20 you can get a 1tb
for the power supply going with an antec or xfx would be more reliable for long term uses


xfx power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... (this psu will be more than enough for that graphics card and shoould be able to handle crossfire down the line)

hdd: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

or this psu/case bundle:

@aford10 i think im just gonna stick with my current hd since WD has a long warranty and it's $16 cheaper

Right. The promo code.


That is of course your option. Just know that the Samsung will top the WD blue in nearly every benchmark. The warranty is the same on both drives.
