Why don't you have the time, also someone would need specifics (chipset preference, gpu manufacturer preference, games you're playing) This would all factor in to a completely different buildset, AMD could get a hefty GPU, intel gets a meaty CPU. Both trade off for a lesser of the other in comparison. So the truth is, if someone wants to make a PC price list for you, they need more info.

^ that looks pretty good, although I'd get a Caviar Blue instead of the Black. Cheaper, and since it uses 1TB platters, just as fast or faster than the Black.

You could also swap the PSU for the Rosewill Capstone 550M, 550W is more than enough for a build like that, and the Rosewill is fully modular (and 80+ Gold).

wouldnt the black be better for booting since there is no ssd for booting.

I don't know. Until they update the Black it really isn't a very good buy. Better warranty, but, for me at least, not worth the close to 30% price premium. That only applies tot he new version of the Blue though, the EZEX model).

Oh because I was told by multiple people a week or two ago that if you are not getting an SSD, you should just go for the black.

Wouldn't a 7950 be better than a 660ti ? Just curious .
