So its time I built a new gaming computer and I could use your guy's help. My budget it 1000 and I am currently at 1070. Id like to shave off a little more money if I can. Here is the build.

Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hard Drive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MOBO- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So I was thinking what to do and i noticed the mobo came with some free RAM, if you think the ram is good enough then I can get rid of the G-skill and shave 40 bucks off which would be good enough. Here is the ram the MOBO comes with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also I just wanted to know if everything is compatible. And which GPU do you think I should go with I was stuck between these two

The MSI has better stats but I feel like evga is more reliable. Thanks in advance for the help.

Don't get the WD Black. Save $20-$30 and get the Blue.
The RAM that comes w/ the mobo looks good.
All compatible, but too big of a PSU. All you need is 600-650w.

I'd get the MSI. EVGA is good, but the MSI has a lot better cooling. Both have good customer service, so I'd stick to the MSI.

That build looks excellent.

The only thing I'd change would be not to get the 660TI - for the same price the Sapphire Radeon 7950 is a far better value.

Thanks for the responses so Ill just use the ram that comes with the mobo. I was actually reading a lot of comments about how MSI has bad customoer service but its not really that much of a concern for me. I was also thinking about getting the 7950 but on this benchmark it has the 660 ti higher on the list by a small amount. http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html My friend also told me of some problems involving that card crashing when playing wow with direct 11 and when he switched to 9 or something it stopped crashing. I think it was a problem with the drivers but Im not sure.

That wouldn't be a Direct X problem - it'd be a problem with the AMD Catalyst drivers, I just downloaded 12.8 last week and it makes a world of difference.
