  1. Thats a Awesome Build.

    But get a better Brand GPU, like MSI Power Edition.
    Gigabyte has Voltage Lock, So no Overclocking

    And I would recommend you to get 8GB RAM and a 600w PSU.
    However they aren't much Required.
  2. Hey thanks for the quick reply! Will this be better: MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card (N660TI-2GD5/OC) ?
  3. And i am concerned about the motherboard since i haven't done any research on it.
  4. That card is Best GTX 660 Ti.
    I have the Same CPU with MSI B75MA-P45. So I suggest you this. Its good Enough for all those parts.
  5. Ok thanks! Ill add the motherboard you suggested plus its also 8 bucks cheaper.
