If I could get it cheaper would be nice, but I want to use NCIX because I'm in Vancouver

    You have an amd cpu and an Intel based motherboard.. you either need to switch mainboard, or switch Cpu.. personally I would prefer cas 7 ddr3 1600 ram instead of cas 9. but that is personal preference.. I would get the 660ti over the 660 even th OC edition ( but that's me )

    This a good replacement? Why the ti over OC? It's cheaper so it'll be great if I can get it

    I'd personally recommend getting the Intel i3-3225 or the i5-3470 and then you can downgrade your motherboard to an Intel H77. If you post your budget that will help to suggest parts.
  4. I want to keep it under 700 after taxes. It's not for me, but for a friend. The intel processors are too expensive, even if they downgrade the motherboard
  5. I updated the picture with some RAM, because it got removed when I switched mobos. But this will work right? Assuming parts come functional it should all go together like lego?

    Quad core Intel + Radeon 7870 and it's just barely over the $700 limit.
