Also i would like to mention that the SSD's do not have much affect on the gaming performance, so you can get this configuration instead which would be better for gaming. SSD is also included here for the OS in this config also.

Here i have included another 660. So you can put 2 660's now and have them in SLI that would boost the gaming performance a lot. Also, it has a 128GB SSD along with 1TB HDD and hence there is a lot of space for everything.

These builds are much more powerful and as speedy as the above build. But with a 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD instead of the 2 SSD's with combined storage of 500GB and this one would be much more powerful than the first recommendation for gaming as it adds another 660 which when two combined should be awesome.

Hope you like this
