1st Build with Nivida Gforce gtx 660ti

Hello Everyone,

I am going to try and build my very own Gaming computer from scratch and was looking for some help from all the awsome people on this website.

I wanted the new computer to revolve around the Nividia Gforce gtx 660ti, one of the the new video cards they offer so I can play Guild Wars 2 on Max setting and future games. I do not know what other componets are the best so I can have a good overall computer.

I do not know what Motherboard to Buy, Proc, Ram, HDD, Power supply and Case

I wanted a case and motherboard that allows for upgrades in the future and something that keeps the computer cool so it will not overheat. I read that by having alot of components they may overheat and fail, somethign I do not wish to happen to me so I really do not want to go with Liquid cooling but if its a must I guess I have no choice.

My Budget is $1000 US Dollars, I would really appreciate any input you guys have for me. Thank you very much for your time in helping with my very first computer build.

  1. If you want max. anything drop the nVidia and take a good hard look at framerate comparisons vs. AMD. Then you'll know why you don't want nVidia.
    My solution would be Out-of-the-Box drives, but keep them eSATA for SSDs/HDDs, USB3 for optical, no choice but they're slow anyways. Liquid cooled CPU/Chipset/GPU system, just don't buy the rubber/plastic pipes and test the fittings under pressure before installation. I trust Asus for MB, I have a dual cpu asus from 2000 still running. AMD seems like a fast multi-core procesor to go with in the Fx-8150 model. Lga2011 will run ram at 1600mhz stock. Temps. low, do not OC, buy performing parts. If you're not studying PC hardware or in the field, I suggest you have someone professional build it for you, unless you have cash to waste to step in every pitfall everyone did before you.
