Making ~$800 system around a 660Ti.. Tags: Prebuilt Systems Product Last response: February 11, 2013 1:24 AM in Systems Share gribs February 10, 2013 7:56:02 AM http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CABe I have a picked a bunch of parts (minus ram) to go around a 660Ti and make it last, but the poor chap doesnt have enough cash to buy it. What I should downgrade to make this build more ~800 dollars without compromising the performance of the GPU or the quality of the PSU. Thanks all.

Exact same chip as the 8350, just lower binned so likely wont overclock as far. timarp000 February 10, 2013 11:52:47 AM PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($149.99 @ Microcenter) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($119.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.98 @ Outlet PC) Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card ($259.99 @ Newegg) Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case ($52.99 @ Microcenter) Power Supply: SeaSonic M12II 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($95.17 @ Newegg) Total: $748.11 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

In most games performance will be very close to the 8350 Change the PSU to a 500 watt unit which is all you will need and change the low profile [ and not that great] cpu cooler to the Xigmatek 1283 GAIA which is as good as the CM hyper 212 and only $20 atNewegg Can't find your answer ?
