Neither build needs a 750 watt psu

500 would be fine for either of those builds

That's all nice, but I don't need RAM and I would like to overclock the cpu, so I don't think a locked chip is in the question.

Thanks for the build, but I kind of want the 7950 now. More people than not say that when you overclock it, it's better than 660 Ti and it's also cheaper.

I just gave my suggestion on the nvidia build it's all about your preferences, if you prefer amd get the 7950, the 660 ti is a good option.
Bottom line both are good cards.

well lets put it this way the 660ti is nice cuz its got vsync but the the 7950 with 320 bit bus versus 192 and more bandwitch will blow it up.

yes it was the 3570k was a typo lol.

if you have a microcenter near you ive seen a 2500k and gigabyte z68 mobo deal for $219 recently, ivy bridge is moot, meh, 2500k's regularly beat 3570k's, although at about 18-25 more watts and hd3000, but who cares about watts, leave that for the laptop crowd, and unless your transcoding video you dont need the extra intel quick sync power from hd4000

2500k is one of the best cpus ever made and pcie 3.0 as of now only offer 1-3% more performance which is offset by the 3-10% overclock performance capability of the 2500k vs 3570k, again unless transcode is very important. either way you still have a badass machine.
