Time to build a new PC, what about these parts?
Jun 28, 2012, 9:21 AM
Hello, it's time for me to build a new PC.
Intel Core i7 3770K
Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600 Mhz
2x ASUS ENGTX560 Ti DCII/2DI/1GD5 (SLI)
Corsair TX850 v2
Corsair Obsidian 650D
Seagate 1000 GB Barracuda
(I'm planning to buy a SSD later)
Are these parts going to work well for me?

Looks good to me. Should be a pretty bad a** system (especially when you get the SSD).
One thing to think about I guess, is going to a single GTX 670, though.

+1 for single gtx670
and dont need 850w
a tx750 would still be more power than needed

^1 to bigcyco1 if the PC is mostly for gaming & better cost efficiency. But I like the i7-3770K too if budget is no issue.
