This is my final list of my build before I decide to buy. I up'd my budget to $1400 for everything that includes OS, monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I have taken a lot of advice and did a lot of research and I think I am finally done. I'd just like you guys to take a look at it and tell me what parts I can go cheaper on, and what parts I can spend more money on to stay within my $1400 budget but get the most out of the PC (for gaming).My main concern was the GPU. I believe I could skimp on other parts to get a better GPU. If you do suggest a different GPU, please keep it Nvidia. I don't want any suggestions on the keyboard, mouse, or OS. Thanks a lot. The help is very much appreciated.
Thank you. I was concerned about the mobo as well. I'll switch for the Asrock and a better SSD. So the GTX 660 2gb FTW Signature 2 will be plenty of GPU for the build? It looks like I'll be breaking my $1400 budget.
I agree with AMD Radeon, you should get the ASRock and a larger SSD, I had a vertex 2 64GB and had to upgrade after a year, I could barely fit a few games on it. Got a HiperX 3k 120 GB and I have enough space now.
