Probably going to go with GTX 660 Ti, since it will probably run everything it will need to on maxed settings.

Ok, so after lots and lots of research and selection, I have figured a sweet rig for myself and have already begun buying the parts.

Please make any comments or suggestions that you feel would help me after viewing my build. :D

Alright, I'll up to the GTX 660 Ti as you suggested.

However, why go for a Caviar Blue, when Black is faster? Just to save $30?

Also...I saw you upped the power supply. Will this desktop need a 750W, or is it just a better PSU anyway? Because I'll spend the $10 extra for better quality.


Thank you very much for your insight l0v3rboi! :D  :sol:

Man, that seems like a glass cannon PC. Everything into the graphic card! xD Although, I already have the CPU, Mobo, and Case sitting next to me as I type this. I don't think I want to drop $380 for the 670 when I can get the 660 Ti for almost $100 cheaper and they are both about the same. I also read a lot about Zotac and apparently they are not too stable it seems. What say you?

Get the 7k3000. It's faster than both Caviar drives.

It seems as though the ones within my price range all have horrible reviews... I think I'm gonna have to just get the Caviar Black. :o
