But ill most likely just get newegg parts since i can get a system and then pay it off in like a 10 months.
Thanks for the help, but i really don't understand the video card fights.
7950 vs 660ti, i heard that 660 was better and then i hear that the 7950 is better.. and then im like O.o what about 8600gt?

7950 beats the 660ti in pretty much everything, it's on par with the 670 now, and beats the 680 with a minor overclock.

Do you think the price of the 7950 will drop when 8000's come out?'

Also you think evo would be able to hold a good overclock because i want to down the road and most likely ill just get a bad ass full case like the rosewill one i was looking at..

or if there is a better air flow case, or anyone want to talk about cases or anything because i love talking about computers..
Anyways, evo. I want to overclock my gpu and cpu more massively than i do now.

Also you think i would ever need a extra set of the ram? 16gb v 8gb

Off of Amazon.com, you can get a used 7950 for $285. That's pretty low.

If by "evo" you are referring to the CM Hyper 212 Evo, then you can get a decent overclock out of it; 4.5GHz, 4.6GHz tops. Just pick up some Prolimatech PK3 TIM to go with it.

That case you are looking at is actually pretty nice, especially airflow wise. It will also make cable management pretty simple. Don't really see any reason to look anywhere else, cases are mostly a preference thing.

If you are mostly gaming, save the money and just go with 8 gb.

Yeah but some cases have special features and more room and air flow and junk. But yea.
