    It's all compatible, and it will all work, but I'd get the 7870 instead of the 660.

    I would, but the 7870 is a bit out of my price range. But besides that, is there any other part i should get instead of one i put?
  3. ^ It should be in the same price range lol.

    You could get a cheaper case, to fit it in if its really out of reach. (The Corsair 300R is one of the best bang for your buck cases out there)
  4. The 660 you're buying is $230.

    This 7870 is $20 cheaper after rebates, and the same price before rebates.

    That link doesnt work, whats the full name of the 7870 youre talking about?
  6. XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

    It's out of stock, apparently.

    This one's $10 more, but yeah.
