Hey guys,

A couple of days ago I posted my old build here. Well, I found a copy of Windows 7 so I upgraded some of my parts. My budget is around $600. I have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Let me know what you think, or if I could make my build better. Thanks!

You might want more than a cx430 for a gtx 660. Also for $229 get a 7870. It will be better for the same price.

Should I go with the CX500? What is a good manufacturer that is cheap for the 7870? I think the 7870 might be too expensive for my build, especially the higher end models.

1. Check the sapphire 7870.

2. yes, go with a 500w psu.

3. Might want to consider a matx case since you chose a matx board. But getting a bigger casing for a smaller board is fine though.

4. Everything else is quite good at that budget.
