I don't see any conflicts other than the power supply you picked isn't going to support a 2nd gtx 660 ti for sli. You'd need a 750W at least. Alright, i found some on overclockers. Is this enough? is there a difference between the two ?

Quote:the modular one means you install the cables as plug and play style when you need them. It'll allow you to have a cleaner case. I do not understand that. i still need a step-by-step building tutorial. Does that mean it is easier to install -better to buy- ? stickmansam January 30, 2013 11:32:53 PM The modular ones mean you can choose how many cables you want plugged into the PSU depending on how many devices you need power for, o you can potentially less cables cloggin up your case Yes the gigabyte z77 is a good one since gigabyte has good quailty with aboveaverage vrm Can't find your answer ?
