is gtx 670 good enough for my needs? I want to play ultra settings with everything absolutely maxed out on a 27 inch monitor 1080 asus monitor. I do not want to spend over 900 dollars. I am willing to go up to a thousand but thats it with taxes/shipping. Will the parts I picked work. I am at 900 currently with this build.
The H61 chipset may or may not have an updated BIOS to properly/fully support the Ivy 1155 chips so for basic builds best go with H77/B75 chipsets? Also u not gonna clock with basic mobos so perhaps tone down to a non K or even cheap Sandy quads? A GTX 670 is actually playable for 2560 x 1600 and at 1920 x 1080 you'd be pleased with it hehe Also negative on that Logisys PSU : a bad PSU when it dies may take out more than just itself so no point skimping on a PSU...
A cheap power supply isn't a good place to try to save money, although it's often the first place less experienced builders will try to go cheap. As a general rule, you want a well-built power supply that conforms to modern technical standards, and you can expect to spend at least $40 on it. Decent PSUs priced under $30 simply do not exist.
Just a quote on building an entry level gaming pc. the 670 isnt entry level, so the gap is even larger

Personally i think it's a bad build all the way around crappy mobo crappy psu crappy aftermarket cooler the hard drive is a Notebook Hard Drive hes better off going with your build IMO
it was tempting to post a bulldozer build
and keep the same PSU.
