  1. That is a great build there. The only thing I would say is spend he extra on an HD 7970, it will give you considerably better performance. Other than that, great job on the build :D
  2. Thanks for reply!

    I was looking for 7970 but wasn't sure if its worth about 100€ price difference. Would asus or xfx be better (or even gigabyte)?
