Intel® Core™ i5-3570K

GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H or GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H wifi?

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?

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.

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.

MSI HD7870 Hawk 2GB vs Sapphire HD7870 OC 2GB

MSI HD7870 Hawk 2GB is cheaper then Sapphire HD7870 OC 2GB

guys i was looking for a good 7870 to buy

PowerColor HD 7870 PCS+

VS
MSI HD7870 2GB HAWK O.C DDR5

VS
SAPPHIRE HD7870 2GB DDR5 O.C

According to GPUreview

specs wise MSI HD7870 2GB HAWK O.C DDR5 = SAPPHIRE HD7870 2GB DDR5 O.C

and PowerColor HD 7870 PCS+ is better clocks that other 2

but oddly, PowerColor HD 7870 PCS+ is alot cheaper then the other 2
