Last Minute Order Advice $1350 'Budget' Gaming PC

Just wanna do one last check to make sure I'm getting the best and right parts for the money. Hey guys this is my first time doing a PC build and I was hoping to get some feedback on the build I came up with. I have been getting a lot of different suggestions on the parts I have chosen and I really want to assure that this PC will last and run very strong. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am an avid Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 player and I would like these games to run at high fps, no problems. I run into a lot of fps lag currently because my computer, well, just plain sucks, so I am hoping to be able to be lag free. Also it would be awesome if I could run the games with maxed out graphics..easily of course. Thanks guys!

  1. The SSD is overpriced.
    Get the Vertex 4 which is $30 cheaper.

    The motherboard is okay, a bit overpriced as well, but I guess you prefer ASUS?

    Other than that, I like the whole build. OC and SLI/CF ready. The PSU is ready for it as well.
    Good job.
  2. id suggest this
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/kFtN

    free memory from newegg for the motherboard

    got a slightly more efficient power supply

    got a cheaper and just as good 7970

    way cheaper motherboard

    faster SSD

    much better cooler
  3. XFX GPU coolers aren't very good. The original GPU had a way better cooler, massive factory OC, and was ~$8 more.

    You don't need a 750W PSU for one 7970, and it's probably a bit on the small side for two. One of these would do fine, and efficiency doesn't make a large difference: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1850snlb9
    If you want modular get one of these: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-power-supply-hcp850
  4. i dont see how they are bad when they cool way better than a stock cooler and about as good as most aftermarket solutions
  5. They may be better than stock, but that doesn't mean there isn't something better. The Sapphire is also clocked a lot higher. $8 isn't a large difference.
  6. really doesnt matter too much for me. ive had a xfx power supply and a couple of their older nvidia cards so i usually stick to them.

    i know the xfx warranty is great but never heard much from sapphire
  7. Oops lol

    I'm not gonna lie to you,I sort of want a faster processor. Like 3.4Ghz aleast. If I come up with the money for let's say the i5 3570, would my psu still be good enough? I'm going with the one you suggested.
