Something you should know before you buy anything. Although the build is pretty solid:

The Sandisk Extreme is faster, by a large margin than the standard 840 Series. Actually, it's actually equivalent in speed with the 840 Pro Series. Secondly, the 760 is really not that good of a buy, especially when you can get a Sapphire 7950 Vapor-X with Boost for $300. Which is only a little more than the 760. Plus, you are getting a much better card. The 7950 will have much better overclocking potential that in the end will destroy the 760, it aslo has 3GB of VRAM, and 384-bit bus memory interface - so better performance with more eye candy turned up. There really is nothing special about the 760. Not until the 760Ti comes out, would I even consider it a good buy. thumb.gif

I added back the SandDisk but I can't stretch the budget any further. Unless there's another capable video card at the $250 range..

Well then, there's really nothing you can do if you can't fork out the extra $50 then it will have to be the 760. Although they do trade blows with each other, once overclocked I'm sure the 7950 will surpass it. Anyway, it will be fine in the end. thumb.gif
