NEED HELP LOOK

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Overtime I have checked various different reviews of different components and this is the build I have put together to buy.

I need opinions on this and is there any improvements I can make?

Gigabyte Z77X-D3H Motherboard
Western Digital Carviar Black 1TB - Hard Drive
LG GH24NS95.AUAA 24x SATA SuperMulti Internal DVDRW Bulk
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC 2GB
Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz DDR3
NZXT Phantom 410 Midi Tower Chassis - Black
Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze PSU

Looks pretty good, perhaps an SSD, better GPU what is your budget? Is this to be a games machine or will you be doing any video editing?biggrin.gif

You could use the latest CPU architecture (Haswell rather than Ivy Bridge) - cost is not vastly different
If video editing were a major factor I7 would be better (but unlikely for GBP170)!
Perhaps a 660 Ti rather than a 660 SC or perhaps a 3GB AMD 7950 (remember GTX 760 launches next week).
