  1. its a pretty good mid range build. It shouldn't come close to $700 though. If it does you are paying too much. What are you going to do with it?
  2. - CPU is a generation behind - the latest line, Ivy Bridge, is available for literally the same price.
    - GPU is okay, but really you can do better.
    - No point in a z77 board if the CPU has a locked multiplier.
    - The 1TB HDDs aren't too far away.
    - Corsair CX has mediocre quality, and was manufactured by a rather questionable company.
    - Changed the casing, but feel free to revert it back.

    Here's a revision.

    EDIT: Oh hi, bigcy! :lol:

    His build looks better than mine. The 7870 is a much more powerful video card.
