We can shave a bit of money off and make it cheaper without sacrificing performance . The PSU is great but if you don't plan to SLI then it's a waste. m 0 l excella1221 November 27, 2012 2:22:15 AM PSU is a waste in either case. It's overkill and too expensive for a single GPU system, and insufficient for 2-way SLI/Crossfire. Get the 7950 or 670 instead. The 660 Ti isn't that great especially for what you're going to do with it, the low bus rate cripples performance. A 1TB Caviar Blue is only $10 away from t hat 500gb Toshiba. Get 2x4gb RAM for dual-channel. If your 3d work is heavy or much needed for work/school, I believe you'll be better off getting an AMD CPU instead with the 8 Piledriver cores/modules. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
