  1. I would get either a evo 212 cpu cooler or a noctua nh-d14. Depends on your budget, but the 212 beats your current one.

    The 680 is overpriced, I would go for a 7950/7970 much better bang for your buck.

    I prefer G.Skill RAM over every other brand.

    I would get an M4 SSD, but thats just my preference.

    I would also get a 7200RPM HDD.

    Other then that, I would give it a 6-10 just because of some minor things that are being wasted.

    8/10

    This is actually one of the first builds where the OP nearly hit the nail on the head with their proposed system. Just switch out the 680 for a 670 or a 7970 instead, as the 680 really isn't very much better and costs about $100 more.
  3. I heard some bad things about the 7970 having rly bad stuttering. I also like how the 680 is factory overclocked. :o It's a super clocked signature edition one.
  4. I've had no issues with my 7970. Might be issues on the beta drivers, but not the latest.

    Anyway I can make it out a 10/10 or would that means spending more money?
  6. Would mean spending a lot more money, as in custom water cooling your whole PC, and RAID (imho) Some people might call this bad because this and that, but really, for the price, it's a great build.
  7. Better graphics card for cheaper and it comes with 3 free games:

    Cheaper cooler and much better:

    Also I suggest some low profile RAM so that the cooler doesn't block any RAM from the slots:

    Also here is a different PSU if you're interested, same price, 80 Plus Gold Certified, 750W and it is Modular:

    Better GPU? Pshhh please. Price/peformance then yes, the 7970, but I'm amost sure the 680 is better.

    Scroll down and look. OC the 7950 and the 680 only gets .8 more FPS. Is that worth the extra $164? Not really. Or you can buy a 7970 and get the same performance for $400 and then OC and beat the 680 by a lot.
