Get the answer g-unit1111 May 17, 2012 10:24:39 PM I'd scrap that whole build - the 560TI is not what it used to be, you're spending way too much on peripherals (put that in the GPU!), and go Ivy instead of Sandy. Try this: Case: Antec 1100 - $99.99 PSU: Corsair TX650 V2 - $89.99 Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H - $159.99 CPU: 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-3570K - $249.99 Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - $34.99 RAM: 8GB Kingston Hyper X Grey 1600MHz 1.5V - $69.99 SSD: 64GB Crucial M4 - $79.99 HD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST - $99.99 Optical: Lite On DVD Burner - $17.99 Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 670 - $399.99 OS: Windows 7 Home Premium - $99.99 Total: $1,397.89 Then you can get whatever else you may need with the rest. You could even add a second 670 and still come in under the original price. m 0 l cranked May 17, 2012 10:42:59 PM ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM Item #: N82E16827135204 $17.99 Corsair Carbide Series 500R Black Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Item #: N82E16811139009 $139.99 Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive Item #: N82E16822148840 $109.99 EVGA 02G-P4-2670-KR GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card Item #: N82E16814130782 $399.99 PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W High Performance 80PLUS Silver SLI CrossFire ready Power Supply Item #: N82E16817703027 $129.99 RAZER BlackWidow Ultimate Battlefield 3 Edition Black USB Wired Gaming Keyboard Item #: N82E16823114022 $139.99 RAZER Black Wired Laser Naga Molten Special Edition Gaming Mouse Item #: N82E16826153064 $69.99 CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9 Item #: N82E16820233186 $49.99 ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS Item #: N82E16813131837 $149.99 Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K Item #: N82E16819116504 $239.99 Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM Item #: N82E16832116986 $99.99 COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel ...
