Anyway to make this cheaper?

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/AIfC

I would really like to have a 22"-24" Monitor LED backlit Widescreen...I know there expensive, but if theres a cheaper on that would be cool if someone could find one...Also, I need the keyboard, i5 3570k is staying, I'd like to hear some input on if i should get a 660 TI or radeon hd 7950. Thanks in advance, Nick Boutin

  1. In the same position between the video cards. Depends on if you plan to overclock, and what games you play.
  2. Best answer
    Cut the fans, you don't needed them, get a better ssd, in my opinion, with at least 120/128 GB.
    Here's my suggestion : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/AXar
  3. Well mostly DayZ (WarZ but i can play that on my POS laptop) Battlefield 3, all the common games, Battlefield 4 when it comes out
  4. Djangoringo, That case doesnt have any fans coming with it ? Ill need thermal paste also
  5. on the cpu see if you can get it from micro center. if not pick up a non k cpu or the i5 cpu without the built in gpu to save some cash.

    The cooler already has it(hyper 212 evo), no need to spend for another one, the Corsair 200R is a good case, it has two 120mm fans, one in the rear and one in front.
  7. Oh i didnt see it came with any! Thank you!! I plan to overclock, Possibly SLI in the future. Will 520W be enough?
  8. You can't SLI with the z77 pro 3, if you want to do later a SLI setup of 660 ti, get the extreme 4 and a psu with 600-650W, but for a single card, the antec neo 520 is more than suffice.
    If you want a 650W psu : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020

    This is what i ended up with. This is BORDER line my budget (1300$ USD)
  10. Get the asus 660 ti, it has a better cooler, same specs of a card, that 660 ti is way overpriced, you can almost get a 670 gtx, the asus is bellow 300$.
    I'd get the corsair TX 650 V2, that psu is out of stock.

    updated list : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/AXuN
  11. Which PSU is better? Im not getting my computer for 3 weeks still
  12. The corsair has more amps/wattage, it's a quality one too, it's at 69.99$ with the 20$ code, and at 49.99$ after mir, it's recommended going with the corsair.
  13. Alrighty anything else i should do? Btw i swapped out the case for HAF 912 Coolermaster. That case seems like its a cheap case.(Cheap as in terrible)
  14. Meh i still like the design look of HAF 912 :D Thanks though!
