Core i7 3770K
Noctua NH-D14
Maximus V Gene (Z77)
2x4GB G.Skill SNIPER Edition Dual Channel CL9-9-9-24 (Low Voltage)
Zotac GTX680
Sandisk Extreme 2.5'' 120GB
ARC Mini Micro Atx Black
SeaSonic 660W Gold

I thought that I don't need a really big case, as I only use one GPU, is my build even optional?

here abroad i could get it for 1750 usd.. it's probably MUCH cheaper in the us.

thanks for your comment. but i don't really need those expanding abillities... a nice small case and small board appeals me more. other than that is it a good build?

i changed to a 3750k and thought of getting a stronger PSU like 750.. will the 660 be enough if i overclock?

Yeah a stronger PSU will certainly help if you plan to overclock or add a second 680 down the road. But Zotac isn't really the best brand for NVIDIA cards - go with EVGA instead.

thanks for your reply, it just seems like there is no one who supplies other brands of the 680 gtx here. and assuming i am sticking to 1 GPU for now, could I still overclock with the current PSU?

Honestly, if it is available, just get it.

With all these changes, given the $ you are spending, it does not make sense to restrict your case. I think you should change the case for something solid and big.

I won't buy that SSD. I would buy Samsung 830. They are good and reliable.

How do you know that Sandisk isn't reliable?

I'm suspecting that it isn't as reliable due to its use of a generic SandForce controller. Marvell controller-based SSDs have higher reliability at the expensive of some speed. A good example would be Crucial m4.

Is it a Sandforce drive or not? If it is you're most likely going to run into the same issues that plague most Sandforce drives - from Intel, Corsair, Patriot, and so on. If it's Marvell based you won't really need to worry.
