Ok so after a long debate about whether to get the radeon 7870 or gtx 660ti i went with the 660ti.

So basically what the title was, will it fit in my rig?

Yes. I would get an aftermarket cooler for your CPU(212 EVO, I'm looking at you). Otherwise, your build is good.

Also, don't buy a wireless mouse if you play games. It's slower!

I usually just get whatever cheaper at the time :lol:  if you ever wanted to add more ram 2x8 is better also better when using aftermarket cpu coolers. ;)
