Which option is better? $1400 new build Tags: New Build New Build Systems Product Last response: September 13, 2012 6:17 AM in Systems Share admiralahkbar September 13, 2012 5:08:04 AM So i am finalizing my parts and while looking at newegg.com i noticed they had a bundle of basically what i wanted but slightly different parts Since the bundle is only 6 parts, the other parts will remain the same for both options. Was thinking about adding a gtx 670 in the far away future and this computer is gonna be 95% used for gaming and i want to try my hands at overclocking OPTION 1 - BUNDLE: (gets a discount) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I... OPTION 2 - my original plan: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hh3B SO BASICALLY Whats better option between the MBO, PSU, Memory, SSD?

A TX750 V2 is more than enough IMO. proton007 September 13, 2012 5:21:28 AM Yes.
