More about build less losing less preformence
  1. i will be playing on a 23" samsung syncmaster at 1640-1200 res and i have no bunget just want it to be as cheap as i can, im looking to play crysis 3 on high
  2. 1. You don't need a 900W power supply for a single, mid range video card. 550W is plenty.
    2. Get a Z77 board, no reason to go with Z68 anymore.
  3. Yup. Get a Z77 board and 550w PSU. With the money you save, get a 7870. You can get a 1TB for that price of that 500GB.
