If you can sell the 560 ti, and get a 660 gtx it will be better, you can find one for ~200$.

If you want a new card included, the corsair CX430 will do for the 660 ti :

I looked at the second one, but I don't want to upgrade my card yet, or until someone wants to buy it. It's fine right now, I don't need to play everything on high/ultra with 60+ frames.
February 13, 2013 8:18:54 PM

Also guys, I need OS, so include that!
February 13, 2013 8:50:08 PM

I would get the HAF 912, it's cheaper and a better case overall, the asrock extreme 3 has everything you need, and it's cheaper.
The sandisk ultra plus is a good ssd, reliable and fast, the samsung 840 pro is faster, but you'll probably not notice the difference, you'll get the same temperatures with the nxzt respire T20, it's a good cooler for the price, if you want a better cooler get the Phanteks PH-TC12DX.

So can you post a link to the build with the changes?

It's not incompatible, it just doesn't have a usb 3.0 in the front, but two usb 2.0, you'll have the usb at 2.0, i don't think you'll have a device that needs the usb 3.0 in the front.
The motherboard has usb 3.0 ports in the back.

Are you sure about using the cx430 for the 560ti and 3670k? I know it will run it but with the rest of the system it will be pulling max wattage and won't be as efficient.
February 13, 2013 9:34:16 PM

It will do, but at full load it might be cutting close, the psu has 32A on its +12V rail, the recommended total system with a 560 ti is 31A, the maximum tdp of the 560 ti is 170W, there's room in there for a new psu if he wants to, the xfx 550 core edition being the best choice.

Oh. Will this affect my OC performance?
February 14, 2013 3:46:51 PM

At full load you'll be cutting close, it might be better, just going with a new psu as well, like the xfx 550 core edition, and you'll have a psu for mid/high end cards and a quality one.
