More about will build work
  1. games dont use even 4 gig of RAM .

    A 2 x4 gig kit makes some sense , but 16 gig is about the same as setting fire t dollar notes [ in terms of game performance ]
    The hyperX is probably 1.65 volt too which is too high for an IB processor .
    1.5 volt [or less] only

    You need a 500 watt psu to run that

    Use the $$$ you save on a bigger SSD
  2. Build looks good. I'm a kingston fanboy so I can guarantee you that the kingston RAM is good, but corsair is more recommended. As for the SSD, grab a Kingston HyperX 3K 90GB SSD. A little more storage, but a lot faster for less than $10 more. Also. A more reputable PSU would be preferred. One such as a Corsair or SeaSonic PSU would be more recommended. Other than that, that is a really good build.
  3. Bump about what Outlander said about the RAM.

    The 500 psu sound low would a 600 be better?

    Unless you want to SLI the 660 in the future, a good quality 500W PSU will be enough.

    EDIT: Did you forget an aftermarket cooler? You have Z77 and k processor parts which leads me to think you want to overclock. Look at the CM Hyper Evo 212.

    under full gaming load you will be drawing about 220 watts .
    Even a 450 watt unit covers that build without stress or too much fan noise
  7. Changed some parts
    SSD
    Kingston SH103S3/90G HyperX
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2416661&CatId=5300
    and psu (i will wnat to SLI in the future)

    SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088
  8. You should be able to get a 120 gig SSD for that price

    Samsung 840 120 gig is only $95
