Build Confirmation

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
I am about to finalize an order through newegg, but before I do so I was hoping to get some opinions regarding my choice of parts. Here is a list of the parts that I chose:
gpu: EVGA 02G-P4-3660-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
cpu: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K
psu: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD
mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ssd: Intel 330 Series Maple Crest SSDSC2CT120A3K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
RAM: G.SKILL Trident X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-8GTX

The computer will be primarily used for streaming, a bit of gaming, some electrical CAD programs, programing. Monitor used will be 1080p LED. I am open for suggestions, so feel free to give your opinions!

Regards, D.

It's decent, but where the hell is the HDD?

Already have that. Since it's 'decent', is there anything you would change to make it better? Money is not entirely an issue, however, I don't want a bunch of extra power that I will not be utilizing. I usually upgrade my system every year. Regrads, D.

Nothing wrong with your choices, but you could save a few pennies on power supply if you wanted to. Unless you plan to SLI at some point, you can easily get by with a quality 550W power supply. The Rosewill Capstone 550-M is a good, fully modular, 550W unit. Also, if you look aorund you can often find some good deals on the Samsung 830 - the Intel drive is a solid choice, but you can't beat some of the deal prices on the Samsung now.

Samsung 830 128GB is cheaper than that SSD. Change GPU to a 7870, it's faster than the 660ti.

The 7950 is a better deal than the GTX 670 at this point.

7970 is the same price as the 670, and beats it.. So the 7970 / 7950 are on par with it.

Yeah, you can get more performance for the same money, or the same performance for less money, whichever you prefer.
