  2. When you look at the build I shared you will see a number of differences that I suggest you consider rather than your build

    If that works for you

    OS? Win 7 64 bit
  3. The only thing is the PSU I am not sure of the brand but alot of people seem
    really positive about in .

    I would probably go for this GPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130662

    otherwise pretty solid build imo
