I think you are making a mistake on the gpu. You can see in my rig I am an nvidia guy but I have to say that a 7870 should destroy a 660 non ti, and you are paying more. The difference between a 660ti and a 660 non ti is large.

How did I qoute that.. This work computer doesn't have enough ram and glitches... thats why. About getting a small cache drive, not a bad idea if you can find an inexpensive 64gb SSD on ebay or something. You should be able to snag a used one for $50 or less and it would increase your speed tremendously. The reason I say go used is that they last so long and they are almost impossible to break, so why not buy it used..

What i would change:
PSU: Capstone 650-M Modular PSU,80+ GOLD,freaking amazing PSU
GPU: HD 7870 XT from Sapphire,comes with Crysis 3 and Bioshock Infinite for free.You can sell them and make the cost of the card even less.
Mobo: Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H Best motherboard when it comes down ot <150$
The price now is a bit higher,but the performance would be crazy!The other parts you've choosen are good imo smile.gif
P.S. And if you can give 80$ more,you could get an SSD - something that'll increase the speed of your PC tremendously.
Crucial M4 64GB SATA III I think that's a good one.

It does beat a 660, but he said he didnt want an AMD. headscratch.gif

Ok I see it now.. Yeah my last radeon was a 9800xt but I wouldn't be scared to give them a try. Same stuff different side of the fence.

I'm looking into a SSD now. Been wondering this for a bit, how exactly does a SSD work? Do I just put a game that I play on the SSD rather than my other hard drive?

And the SSD you linked has horrible reviews. Something about the firmware making the SSD fail after 5200 hours lol. Seems kinda fishy.

Edit: The further I'm looking into these SSD's around the 75-100$ range I see horrible reviews. On a 75$ budget what would you reccomend for a decent SSD? 64gigs should be plenty.

They fixed that in a firmware update. Crucial and Samsung still on top for ssd. Just update to firmware 009 or higher
