I have made, hopefully, a link to a public newegg wishlist.

https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/MySavedWishDetail.as...

Is this the best RAM for this setup? I need low profile because of the Hydro212. Ill add a SSD later, and the PSU seems decent? Its on sale plus an additional $15 off.

Thoughts? I plan to purchase today or tomorrow! :bounce: 

missing anything? I havnt put together a computer in awhile and am I going to need more cables to put this thing together?

More about : final build input

I can't look at the computer. We can't look at your wish list.

there should be enough cables. if you need a 8pin extension later on, you can always order it then

i recommend this gtx 660ti instead. cools much better and can overclock much farther

Was also looking at the MSI one, but I cant beat EVGA support and thats worth some to me. Thanks for the input ill keep it in mind before i purchase later tonight.

thanks everyone, youve been a big help

EDIT: Is it worth the wait and $20 for the FTW edition? Its clocked ~50mhz higher, exact # not sure without looking at EVGA site.

I'd say maybe - it probably won't make that much of a difference.

Although I'd switch your power supply with something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

i rather get a much better cooler (by quite a few more degrees) than more customer service.

I've heard mixed reviews of those PSUs - some are great but some not so great.


3 Newegg reviews doesn't make a PSU good or bad. I base that on the dozens of legitimate professional PSU reviews that say that this PSU is excellent.

Does the MSI 660TI overclocked warrant a consideration? I know some people who love MSI cards and others that hate it. I know it runs cooler than the EVGA does and has a slightly higher clock. I read the reviews for a few 660ti OC editions and all rated really well.

Figured Id ask anyone with some input who has used them or had any issues etc. Link to the card itself:

they say it is excellent and it should be true. but most professionals get their units directly from the manufacturer. the manufacturer can send their best and working units to them for review so they can get good feedback. gotta take in consideration of both customers and professionals opinion equally

You're telling a guy who tells everyone to rely on professional reviews to not rely on newegg reviews. :p

Yeah Jonnyguru is pretty much the source for PSU reviews - they're generally what I go by.
