How does my parts list look?

This is my first budget build for gaming. Thoughts? I know the case is cheap and doesn't support usb3.0 but I don't think 3.0 is necessary anyways and it is allowing me to spend more on gpu/cpu

  1. OH yeah I forgot to add a driver, so that will add another 17-20$
  2. Looks reasonable.
    If you live near a microcenter, they will sell you a 3570K for the same $190.
  3. id get this

    adding 20 dollars to the GPU gets you 20% more performance. totally worth it
  4. So is there really any difference btwn the 3330 and the 3470? And why the switch from the ripjaws?
  5. because its cheaper

    and there isnt a noticeable performance boost from a 3330 and a 3470
  6. Will a xfx 7870 DD fit ok in the fractal design? On The specifications it says clearance is only 8.5" where the gpu is 9.5".

    I think so.
    That 8.5" is true if you use ALL of the hard drive bays which are removeable.
    If you use only the top bay, you can use a card as long as 13"

  8. Yeh your right, they designed this case so you mount the drive vertical which leaves plenty of room for any gpu.
