^ OP specifically stated he wanted an Nvidia GPU and the Corsair 650D in his template.
The HDD swap would be fine, I picked the green with the assumption that most of his critical programs will be running off the SSD, and therefore would be saving power vs. a standard barracuda. Either one works.
@ckholt83 660 is not even worth it compared to 7870. go ahead and go for a 660 for lower power consumption or upgrade into a 7870 for more performance
I agree only because a decent 7870 can currently be bought cheaper than any 660 in online retail. In gaming performance, the 660 and 7870 are very close and trade blows with the 7870 having a slight win that is only truly great when you take overclocking and especially then also heavier MSAA into account.
I live in Waukesha, Wi, not to far from you and will be willing to sell you my system.... You could pick it up? Not sure if your willing to throw down another $1000 but for $2200 its a complete steal. Or even less
