Nice build! Only thing i'd throw out is maybe dropping to 1600mhz 1.5v ram. Could also ditch the hard drives completely if this is strictly for gaming.

at that price i'd get a Radeon HD 7970... or even save yourself some cash and get a HD 7950... both will outperform the 670.

Why you suggest to drop from the 1866 ? And also would you advice me a 3 tb seagate over a western digital ? Or better i stick safe with the samsung 1 tb . ( I want a high capacity reliable drive)

I like WD personally.

You can go either 1866 or 1600 as long as the timings are close and it's 1.5v (looks like those ripjaws are good).

Feel free to advice me on anything. Thank you



looks good... that is an awful lot of case for 1 optical drive. While cases are sorta subjective choices it seems like a bit overkill to me... unless you have an aesthetic reason for picking it. Since you're getting the evo 212 I assume that means you're not water cooling. you probably can save yourself some cash and space going with a smaller case.

make sure the SSD is an 840 PRO. that looks like a basic 840... the 840 is fast reading/accessing data on the SSD, but very slow (in comparison to high end SSDs) writing the data to the drive.

Probably should take the 20-30 dollars you save on a smaller case to make sure you have the 840 PRO.



Otherwise, it looks great.

Yeah the 840 outperforms the others , but in terms of price/efficiency its bettter to save those 60$ and get the 840 . Thats what ive read on other posts.
