Getting a standard mouse/keyboard for now. Upgrading later on.
Can you see any way to optimize performance while keeping it at this price range? I'm still not sold on getting an SSD for OS and primary programs. How big of a difference is it, really, aside from boot-up? I will be using programs like Eclipse often.
Would a 7870 be able to play current games at max or close to max settings?
@ the OP. You want a 750w psu in order to push two of any of these cards down below including that card you have in your build up top. There isn't any reviews on that board down below for the fact it was just released less than a week ago. It supports SLI and is geared for over clocking. Just add a case and hard drive to this build. btw you lucked out being near a Microcenter. That right there saved you a good chunk of change.
