Could you stretch $50 more for the GTX 660? Also, you don't NEED a sound card and Full Tower isn't needed. I'm pretty sure a midi tower would fit this perfectly fine.

I understand you might not want to spend even more than your looking to but the gtx 660 is better than 650ti although the 650ti is a great card :-) especially for the price

WAY too much PSU. Get a 500w. It will be more than enough.

You don't need a full tower case.

You don't need a sound card.

WAY too expensive motherboard. Get an h77 board.

Use the saved money to get a better GPU.

^^ I didn't notice that aha, yeah, you're gonna need RAM. I recommend G-SKILL rip jaws or corsair vengeance ram. Like the guy above said. If you could stretch the budget, you could get a better GPU and CPU...

Something like this. As tiny voices said, no need for a sound card unless you are doing some studio work. Overclockable CPU and cooler.

Okay, for me, for that budget, I would go with something with a more balanced build, something like this.

1. If you can get a better card over 660 then go ahead.
2. Thinking that you don't intend to overclock and go with multiple gpu, this build will be more suitable.
3. Thinking that you'll buy all parts at newegg.
4. Thinking that you have a spare hdd since in your post it was linked to an ssd, If not, then you can still add an hdd and could still fit your budget.
