Hi there. I was wondering if someone could give me advice about this build. I posted one on here yesterday, but I realized that it was too expensive..

I went with a lower-end GPU to use until around March.
Any recommendations?

consider this gpu...very good for its price!!!


Thanks, but I am quite set on the 7770. I can get a better card in a few months.

I don't need to play on Max settings, I am fine with medium for now since I don't have a gaming pc at all.

this sabertooth is a completely a waste of money , i recommend going with the gigabyte Z77X-UD3H or UD5H another thing made me confused on your build why 750W you are not going to sli/crossfire so a quality 600W psu will be more than enough. like the
