Your SSD is 60$ over the other ones but brings Assassin's Creed 3 so there's no real difference unless you already have AC3. If you do: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Get GTX 670, the difference from the 680 is very little, or you can also get the 7970. Not sure about PSU but I think its right. | Report abuse Reply to loresr97 Best solution excella1221 November 25, 2012 12:41:52 AM Here's a small, Canadian revision of your build. You don't need 16gb of RAM or 4 DIMMs straight out, you won't even max out 8gb. I upgraded the power supply so you can add a 2nd GPU in the future for SLI/Crossfire w/o having to up wattage.

But the msi gtx 680 in my build is 429.99 with like 4 games. a 7970 is usually around 400 too.. so thats why I chose the 680 | Report abuse Reply to lefruitsec DarkSable November 25, 2012 1:15:48 AM ^And you can get 5% worse performance for more than $100 off, with two or three free games with the 670. It's much better, price/performance wise. | Report abuse Reply to DarkSable lefruitsec November 25, 2012 1:45:59 PM Best answer selected by lefruitsec. | Report abuse Reply to lefruitsec Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Final build advice. 1800$ budget.> Related ressources: ForumFirst ever build , $1600- 1800 budget , advice and suggestions please ForumFinal Build Advice ($1700-$ 1800 ) ForumBudget 1800 dollar gaming rig (first build ever) Forum$ 1800 Build - Looking for final thoughts before purchasing ForumFor your final perusal before I pull the trigger! 1800 $ i7 Build Forum[ Final Build ] $1500 - $2000 Gaming Build , Need Advice Please Forum[New/First Build ] Suggestions/ Advice for Beginner Build (~$ 1800 CDN) ForumFirst build advice for gaming rig ( budget £ 1800 ) ForumNew build final revision compability check please advice needed ForumPlease review - $ 1800 budget gaming PC ForumLooking for advice on Engineering/Graphic Design/Gaming rig for $ 1,800 ForumNeed Feedback on $ 1800 Gaming Build Forum1600- 1800 Gaming PC Build ForumHTPC Mobo+CPU ~$150 More resources Read discussions in other Systems categories Homebuilt New Build Prebuilt Cases Power Supplies RAM CyberPower !
