GTX680 performance increase over a GTX670 is negligible, especially for the price difference. GTX770 is a re badged GTX680, therefore i would buy neither. save yourself a heap of money and buy a Radeon 7950 and then upgrade to the rumoured 9000 series in Q4 of this year.

Power supply way overkill: 550 watt would give enough headroom.
are you doing video editing or any other memory intensive tasks? if not then if you're just gaming you dont need more than 8GB ram
again, the GTX680 is a waste of money and for less money and a card that would whip its metaphorical ass, you should get a 7970, or save money and get a 7950

@Maddawgz209

GTX 680 2gb is fine, unless you're planning to run Surround, there's no need for 4gb. There's one for sale ~$350.

I would rethink amd. Latency issues, and driver issues, etc. If you're building for the first time, get an Nvidia card. Drivers are rock stable and ready to go. Doesn't suffer from the latency issue (which we have still to get a fix from Amd). By the time they fix it, 89xx will be out. I abandoned quad 7970s plans due to driver and screen tearing problems. Should have learned my lesson with the 69xx series rolleyes.gif

This is ocn, there's no such thing as overkill (or you're in the wrong forum). 1kw psu is fine and "future proof" if you decide to upgrade to sli/crossfire.


Everything else on your list Maddawgz209 looks good.

1000 watt power supply would just be a waste of money?

So if the 680 for 350 is good I'm only guessing the 770 sc for 419 would be that much better
