Need HELP new build
hey guys I was wondering if someone could help me set up a gaming rig. The budget will be around 900. i would like to purchase the parts from newegg. I am going to be waiting for the 660ti but if you have other suggestions please share. Also if you think i shouldn't wait or if there is something better on the market now. Thanks in advance! Just as a note I don't need windows 7 or a monitor although I am open to suggestions on a good monitor I should just don't include that in the budget.
Here's this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ezVR
Around $590 for the following:
CPU: i5 3570k
MB: Asus P8Z77-V LK
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB (2x4GB) 1333mhz (low-profile)
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500 GB
Case: CoolerMaster HAF 912
PSU: Corsair TX-650W non-modular
So, that leaves you with $300 for the best GPU you can get for that money, which according to Tom's Hardware is the Radeon HD 7870 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125418 - $280 after rebate, Gigabyte 2GB version). You can get that, or wait for the 660ti. Either way you'll be good to go.

Just grab the gtx 660ti when it comes out. I'm fairly certain it'll be within the same price range as the hd 7870 as well as outperform it.
