you better have a great set of headphones to take advantage of the STX. also, do you plan on running only 1 video card or 2?

I may be adding a 2nd video card later on but this is it for now. I changed the ssd, the ram and the motherboard. Thank you for your input!

what did you change the SSD to? the sandisk extreme is a very good one. pick it up today if you still can

So are you getting the 670 or 570 because you listed both the 570 is not worth buying for $309.99 you be better off buying a 660 TI best buy is selling them for $299.99 already but if you are getting 670 carry on nice build btw.

Oh I am getting the sandisk extreme and also the 670 rather than the 570.
Thanks for the help.

also, if you want to, you can wait for the 660ti and see how its performance racks up. 670s so far from what i see dont have too many deals.
