    you keep your power supply and use your 160GB HDD as a secondary drive

    use your existing 120mm fan as a second fan in the 370 case

    the H77 motherboard is much cheaper than the Z77, and works fine. the CPU Cooler is unnecessary in this build
  2. i really dont want micro atx due to the fact i want to upgrade video cards later on to sli
  3. SLIing 240s is just a bad idea nowadays
  4. there 45$ a peice and one runs mw3 max 60 fps
  5. the 6670 i included is a step up from the old 240 on the tom's hierarchy chart, uses a lot less power (it runs off the PCI slot)
