Mid-Low.....

Reasons:

1. USING STOCK HEATSINK. You always want to get an aftermarket cooler if you are serious about your PC. If you can't spend ~$100 then go with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. They usually retail for around $30 USD.

2. 660ti's = the worst value for a $300 card you can get. For that price range nothing beats the good ol' AMD 7950. The reason why those 660ti's don't perform well for their price range is due to their 192 bit buses which make them incredibly slow (compared to the 7950, for instance).

Otherwise the whole rest of the build is great! I love your selection of RAM, motherboard, CPU, and case. Also the 830 is the best SSD you can get for the price. Samsung's new 840 line still has to catch on.

I rated it mid-low not only because of those things, but how they affect this system if he got the right components. IF he had an aftermarket cooler he could get better temps/performance AND overclock well so really, there is performance he could have without much effort, but is now not achievable because the stock cooler can barely handle normal temps. Now the 660ti isn't complete trash either. SLI those and you will have a great gaming system. I am just saying that I personally don't like them, but they get decent fps at 1080p. And by the way twelve, try to grow up. No one on this forum name calls unless they are five years old. Because we all have a little something called self-respect. Literally you just sounded like a middle-schooler...

Mid-end.
Agree with Poltregeist that the 7950 is a better option. You could have gotten a good aftermarket model, as that PNY uses reference design cooling.

The PSU is a bit overkill, but I can see why you would get it to allow for SLI later on.

I'm going to say mid-end as well.

The GPU is the weak link - GTX 670 or 7950 would offer better bang for the buck.

The rest of the components seem like good choices, an aftermarket cooler can easily be added later.

You can't get a 7950 or gTX670 for $250 after rebate like the one he linked to. At $250, I don't think he did too bad. But again, really, price paid has no impact on the raw performance, which is what he was asking. What game can't he play at 1080p high with a 660 Ti?

I know that's my point. Who cares if you think 7950 is a better value, 660Ti is a good card.

actually i believe that the 660ti is better than the 7950 , which is pretty close to his smaller brother the 7870 which the 660-non ti is beating it in most of the benchmarks.
