Seasonic M12II-620W Bronze-Modular MSI GTX660 2GB Twin Frozr II/OC Corsair H100 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler NZXT Phantom 410 Midi Case i am trying to make a good value for dollar gaming PC . i am not sure about the ram should i go 1600? reading about ram is quite confusing as compared to others and for SSD , is there a good one i should get or just wait until it becomes cheaper? was thinking to getting 1 60gb SSD , pretty much good enough to hold OS ? is my power supply enough? More about : building gaming dollar austinwillis81 November 28, 2012 3:12:03 AM Drop the H100 if you want to keep costs down, a hyper 212+ Evo will suffice. SSD: nothing on sale right, Samsung 830 series SSDs are nice. RAM: Go 1600Mhz, 4gb and 8gb kits are dirt cheap And PSU is enough. lt_dan_zsu November 28, 2012 3:17:29 AM Your psu is enough. get a 7870, same price, more powerful. Just go with 1600, it performs just as well, and you can overclock if you want. For the mobo, if the wifi version is more than $10, then don't get it, then get edimax nano adapter.
