Look great. It will work well.

Do you want to add a SSD?

Yessir, other than possibly adding an SSD like cin19 suggested, I've nothing to recommend - in fact, this actually looks a lot like something I'd recommend. This should pretty handily run games on ultra at 1080p, and get great framerates.

Thats good hear, about to pull the trigger and finally buy all this stuff. Dont really care about an ssd, since all it does it load and boot up files faster, right? What SSD's would you guys recommend?

It will have an effect on a lot more than that, but yeah, pretty much. It'll make your desktop a helluva lot more responsive overall, as well - all of the system services and programs will be running off of it. But if you're not looking to invest in an SSD, then a Caviar Black will serve you well by itself.

Man, I should get into sales, because I wasn't even trying.

In all seriousness, though, you should also look into the 128GB Samsung 830, which should also be $100. It's generally more reliable than what OCZ can offer (although the Vertex 4, which is a bit more expensive, is much faster).

I give it an OK, man. Its a balanced mid/high end gaming and media encoding machine. Gonna work wonders with almost every app out there.

I agree, as well, with the suggestions the guys above made, an SSD would be an awesome addition, even if its not a top tier one.

But depending on what kind of games you are going to use it for, I may differ on the graphics card. The new 660Ti is a great choice for mid/high end gaming at 1080p, I cant deny that, but its just released and its prices may drop a little bit, because some of its criticism makes it a 'meh' card compared to that price. Almost everyone in Tom's read the article comparing it to an HD7950 (50USD more expensive) but the limitations on the 660Ti are evident. It will give you an amazing experience right out of the box, but if you intend to push it further with 1600p resolutions or higher level AA, the limitations (2gb memory and 192bit interface) will dampen your results. Thats why it may drop prices, because for 50USD more you can get your hands on a crazy overclocker (reaching about 1400Mhz without overvolting), the 7950, with 384bit interface and 3GB memory.

But any other than that, its a great build. If you dont intend to go extreme with your gaming, this is just perfect. But you may want to wait a bit for the pricing :x!

Cheers.
