Ready to build?
Dec 14, 2012, 12:00 AM
Hi, this is the first time I'm building a gaming pc and I thing I'm ready to build it. But I just want some last opinions/advice before I start ordering the pieces in a few days.
Will I be able to play games such as BF3 on max setting(or close to max) with no lag? Is this a good rig overall? Any suggestion to make it better with out paying hundreds more?
Here are my parts:

looks fine. should be a good system. Pretty good size budget you got there.

Nice solid build, I'd just go with a different PSU. Something from Corsair, XFX or SeaSonic and no need for a 750w, 650w will be more than enough even if you get a 2nd 670.
1- Seasonic SS-660XP 660W -
2- Seasonic X650 -
3- Corsair HX650 -

I would go with a different PSU, but do you plan to SLI in the future?

Thanks for the responses, I might change the PSU as you said zander.
@deemo13: Yes I might SLI in the future, would you change something in the build if I plan on doing so?
Dec 15, 2012, 4:48 AM
Well, you are probably going to want at or above 750W or so for SLI in the future.
