"--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. "

  1. I'd get a 7950, the 660 is crippled in its memory bus. Something like Gigabytes windforce version. Switch the PSU to a 650w Corsair TX v2. Rest looks good.
  2. thanks, changed up the ram and the power supply
