    heres a better build.
  2. If you have a MC near you, I can tweak the above build to include a GTX 670. :D
  3. thanks for that link. I think I want to stick with an nvidia card just because I have a 3d tv that I can hook it up to just to have that option. As for the other parts I'll look through those I'll probably end up switching whats on my list for some of those parts.
