Memory: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory [+3] (Corsair or Major Brand)

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB 16X PCIe Video Card [+86] (EVGA Superclocked [+54])

  1. Looks good!!! Iit is a good cpu and gpu!
  2. Change the GPU

    If you can afford a gtx 670 that would be great or if you can't at least get a 570
  3. unless youre doing SLI/crossfire 850 is overkill on the PSU
  4. indeed... 750 will work but with the 560 Ti (i have the same one) i plan on SLI'ing in the future and would hope you do the same. if not, i would upgrade the GPU to something more powerful.

    otherwise it was a solid build. three things:

    -add 'max default case fans' +9
    -and i would lose the internal card reader. it takes a whole 5.25 bay and they dont give you the bay door so you can't just remove it. An external readers costs $5 on newegg... go with that.
    - lastly, don't get "or major brand' for anything at CP. so i would select a RAM brand.
