Get the answer Emelth December 30, 2012 4:11:43 PM Everything looks good from this end I would reduce the RAM to 8GB no reason to have 16GB for gaming I would bump up the PSU to 750W so that you can have SLI in the future if not take it down to 550W and get a 670 or 7950 djangoringo December 30, 2012 4:13:49 PM Change the ram for 8GB, for gaming that's all you need : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/samsung-memory-mv3v4g3dus Or if you still want 16GB : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/crucial-memory-bls2k8g3d16... Get a 670 gtx : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/pny-video-card-vcggtx670xp... TheRandomWookie December 30, 2012 4:32:46 PM Is the difference between a 670 and a 660 ti that great? If I wanted to get more monitors could I do surround off of one card and still get decent frames or would it be too much? djangoringo December 30, 2012 5:02:49 PM Well for triple monitor, you'll need at least a 670 gtx, but it's recommended two 670 gtx(getting another latter on). You have a mobo and psu for two 670 gtx. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumFirst Time Builder needs your advice!
