More about rate build
  1. Nobody want's to rate this or?
  2. Spend the extra 60-70 $ and get a 7970 instead.

    If you do lots of multitasking (eg virtual machines) or gaming with more than one monitor for example, I'd also up the RAM to 16gb.

    Also, get at least a gold certified PSU - it might seem a bit pricier than going with a bronze cert but it will save you money in the long run on the electric bill.

    Other than that, looks good.

    You have a old slow sata II ssd in there, also just get a single 2TB hdd, and spend more on the card for a 7970, also 850W is overkill for a single card, the TX650 V2 will do just fine.

    I don't really like seagate, I have heard they have a much higher failure rate then WD

    16 Gigs of RAM is overkill for just gaming, you only need 16 gigs if your going to be rendering
  5. Seagate has the same reliability as wd, if you want a wd hdd just get one 1TB, but seagate hdds are fine, overall it's slightly faster and it's cheaper.
