  1. well everything looks good exept for the fact youre buying an unlocked cpu without an after market cooler. you might want to look for the hyper 212 plus/evo

    edit, for the case, imo this one is much better and its 20$ less.

    i find it really funny how in this forum, people post their spec and then you guys come and decide to post a completly new build list...
  7. I'd get a better video card if you want it mainly for gaming. 7950 or the 670.

    It's showing the OP that he/she can get a build and SLI capabilities yet have a 128GB SSD put in that build for the same budget that he originally had. I'm surprised you took the time to reply to my post yet failed to notice that.

    It isn't funny in the least. We only post a build if it is a better alternative to the one in the OP, and Why_Me's build is.
  10. Whats your budget?
  11. Probably 1300. That's with everything. Windows 7 and an antivirus

    I combo'd the anti virus with that motherboard up top and also that Corsair 300R combo's with the MSI 7870 to save $15 and the Gigabyte GTX 660 which is factory over clocked goes for around $230 on newegg if your looking for money savers.

    You have a 750w psu which is meant to run two of those cards yet a board that will only run a single 670 (it offers no option to add a second card in SLI later on).
