  1. Do you have a Hard Drive from a past build because a SSD will not supply you with enough space in the future. If you don't you will want to take out the SSD and get a normal HD like this http://pcpartpicker.com/part/western-digital-internal-hard-drive-wd10ezex
  2. And delta a gtx 660 is not better than a 7850 if you overclock the 7850 even tom says so http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-4.html

    In the future I might get an additional HD. For now 120gb is more then enough; I only use 89GB of my laptop hd, and I had my laptop for 2+ years. (also on my current laptop hd that 89gb also includes clutter.)
  4. If you're going to be gaming - it would be better to actually go Intel instead of AMD.

    I'd suggest something like this:

  5. Oh, and by the way, the ram I listed in the pcpartpicker link is already purchased. On Black Friday I purchase the ram for $30 and some other stuff I sold on ebay.
