I think so depending on the cases, and on that note i can save some cash and put it towards a better gpu


Ideas for Mid tower:

BitFenix Shinobi Window Black

COOLER MASTER HAF XM

COOLER MASTER Storm Scout

COOLER MASTER Elite 431 Plus

COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer


I'm looking at video cards based on this benchmark : http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html

I won't be using much of the drive bays, one for SSD for now, maybe an additional HDD later on

Thank you guys for your help, i know i am a bit hard to deal with, please bear with me until i order all of these parts (hopefully this week)

I say either go big or go cheap for cases.

The Fractal Design Define R4, its probably one of the nicest mid tower cases made, its about $100ish give or take. For cheap, the NZXT Gamma classic will fit everything, it could even fit a 7970, and its like $30.

Don't go with that website for picking a GPU, it claims that the GTX 690 ti is SLOWER then the GTX 680, the only cards faster then the GTX 690 is the 7990 and the Asus Ares II,

Ok so 7870 and GTX 660 have very close stats, but i'll go with the 7870 even though i'm not a big fan of AMD


*EDIT* Is that Gpu any good ? its a GHz edition and newegg gave it some good reviews

The ram stays, its good for its price and sniper is $5 more for a CL9 where this is CL8

Whats wrong with the PSU? i know its overkill but i like a FULL modular PSU that can do the job its also on sale and 2 of my friends have the same one and have had no problems.

thanks ADHDadditiv i've been looking through that list and can't find any 600-750W fully modular ones that i like :/

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088

is the only one but its getting out of my price range

Reasons for the Gigabyte GPU, and not a 7870, i looked at the FPS ratings for the different games in this review and for most of the games that i would play are do play the Gigabyte GTX 660 Windforce OC 2 GB got better FPS (also it stays cooler, and quiet)

Do not touch that PSU, make sure to pick it from the Recommended PSU thread in my sig.
As for the case, if your going to spend that much, get the Fractal Design R4, its just better quality, although coolermaster makes good cases too.

DO NOT GET A GTX 660 INSTEAD OF A 7870, you WILL be dissapointed. Every website that does reviews for GPU's almost always pick games that runs better on Nvidia's, its not intentional (sometimes it is). Trust me, I've done extensive research on the subject of GPU's, the 7870 is quite a bit faster. The GTX 660 ti is closer, but the 7870 is still faster. And it runs just as cool and just as quiet due to it being THE EXACT SAME COOLER!!! Sorry for the yelling.

*EDIT* Also I wouldnt pick the Ripjaw ram simply because the Sniper series is cheap (same brand) and those fins on the top can get in the way of cable management as well as other things.'

Also make sure to grab a CPU cooler.

A 7870 and a i5 3570k OC'd TO THE LIMIT!!! won't draw much at all. i'll hazard 520W is all you need

Get a 500W PSU and a 7870 XT, that's the real deal.

Agreed, I hope this guy isnt like this other guy from a little while ago that would listen to his friend, post a proposed build and then it got ripped apart by us, this happened like 5 times until I abandon thread along with everyone else.

Also make sure to grab a CPU cooler.

choosing a different PSU from your list, i think 650W is the max i need now that i look at it, 550W seems cutting it short i just want to play it safe, the problem is getting a fully modular one that doesn't cost way too much

i have looked at the 7870, is the one i picked ok?

woops *edited* there is the cpu cooler

sorry man i don't like the look of the Fractal case,

the ram is good CL, and i just looked at sniper and its actually like $5-10 more expensive

sorry if i'm pissing you guys off, its just i saved up all this money and wanna make sure i get the good stuff, and i'm trying to learn and understand why you guys recomend something over something else.

is it just me or do 90% of the people that are talking in this post like AMD gpu's? i'll agree that they are better for OC'ing so i'll stick with one of those

*EDIT* Going to start ordering parts sometime today or tommorow as soon as i get a final OK from you guys

if the MC combo deal buy a CPU get 50$ off a mobo is still valid use it. add up all your savings and get your self a nice HD7950. you won't regret it.

I can agree with this; considering it is very similar to my rig. I wish I had a 7950 though.

I would never touch that PSU.. get the Seasonic 620W for 69$

Also SSD? i would drop that put that 150$ towards a 7970.. and save the 150 down the line.. labor day offers are just around the corner. You will get it cheaper then..

I could overclock my sig system (7950+3770k) as much i could squeeze out of it and it wouldn't break the 400W barrier by far. It's safe to assume that your build isn't going to cut even remotely near that. If you're still concerned after looking the reviews, it is very likely that they have reported the power draw from the wall socket which in reality is 10-20 percent more than what the PSU itself is pulling, depending of course on the PSU's efficiency.

Not to mention that PSU is horribly overpriced for what it is. You can get a so much better PSU with half the money. Trust us on this.

Other than that, the build looks good and I'd give you the green light on it.
