Thanks "--Thats a 1.65v ram kit, you need a 1.5v ram kit. ---Also you don't need 850w psu, a quality 650w unit would be enough for SLI 660ti's.

Switch the PSU to a 650w Corsair TX v2. Rest looks good. jason_01 September 7, 2012 11:47:56 PM thanks, changed up the ram and the power supply Can't find your answer ? Ask !
