looking good, you sure about the ssd? I mean im all for ssd and right now I wont be able to live without it, but if your on budget, why not put it on hold for now, I mean other things like the PSU, might be something you could change. The 560ti should be able to run on a 650w PSU. gimme a sec to have a look at what scans got

EDIT: Couple of changes here and there and maybe you could fit in an ssd in there

I updated my original post with the updated the build, and I'm really liking the new total with the 560 Ti SLI. It would be nice to have a little put away for upcoming games.
Either way, you're going to get some great performance and it will last you a while. If you can see yourself doing a system revamp in 2-3 years, that'd probably be your best bet. 560 Ti's will still destroy current games and probably be just fine to max out games for the next two or three years.

In short, if the price is worth the performance gain, make the jump from 560 to 580. If it's not, don't.

For a quick benchmarking reference, here's a review of 560s in SLI that includes 580 SLI data: http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforc...i-sli-review/1

sata 3 hdd is just a gimmick, they don't even reach the bandwith of sata 2 lol.

I would get the samsung f3 1tb or get two for raid 0.

for PSU I would recommend these:

Antec TruePower New TP-650
XFX Core Edition 650W
XFX XXX Edition 650W
Corsair TX650V2 (the XFX Core above is identical internally)

650w is more than enough for 560 ti SLI. save some money there.


PSU's pick one you like lol

Antec TP-650 £90
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-...-12v-120mm-fan

Corair TX650 V2 £68
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-...onze-140mm-fan

XFX XXX Edition 650W £72.
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-...135mm-gray-fan

Either one is more than adequate for 560 SLI, I would recommend the XFX XX edition, semi modular and a good price too

I'd rather get the 850w now, and not have to worry about it whenever I upgrade next. I've decided against the SSD and 2TB for now, just going to get a 1TB F3 instead.
