    That looks pretty good, what would you do to upgrade that? Another card or maybe more ram?

    Oh yeah sorry, I'm just trying to build a solid gaming pc without spending too much. I'm also going to school for computer science but that's not too demanding so far.
  4. Okay sounds good, any recommendations on a monitor?
  5. Not too much, I hear 1920x1080 is the standard, but if I can get something better for not too much more money then I'm open to the idea.

    Oh that's real nice, I was trying to get it all off newegg but it looks like I'll be able to save some money by mixing it up.

    how much are you tryin to spend? you can get a decent 1080 piece for just over a 100 but then the sky is the limit (2560x1440>1080 w/ 120hz > 1080 w/ 60z and bigger is always better)

    Another question, I can get the Radeon 7950 for only $300, is the 7970 GHz edition really worth the extra $150?

  8. Okay so here's my final build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jETM I just wanna make sure all the parts are compatible and want some final advice, any last comments? The noctua cooler was out of stock so I switched to a zalman for the same price.
