After many considerations, I decided to build now than waiting. Rather going cheap, I want to build a solid one that will last me for the next 3-5 yrs of gaming (if possible). Meaning, adding upgrade options, like SLI. Hopefully around $1k. redface.gif

Revised Goals:
1. Able to play BF4 at med to high settings
2. 2 way SLI near future.
3. Support 27" inch. Suggestions for gaming or movie (60/40)

Questions:
1. GTX 760 is at a good price point, but I've ready I might need 770 for BF4 OR 660 ti out performs 760?
2. I've heard upcoming new games will utilize HT? BF4 might use this or is it a rumor? :\
3. PSU watts enough for 2 way SLI later?
4. I was thinking getting a H100i, but read so many bad reviews on neweggs. Alternative to achieve a sustainable safe max OC?
5. Any other parts listed I should reconsider replacing for better/greater benefits?

THANKS IN ADVANCE ALL! thumb.gif

760>660ti, 760 should do well for bf3 smacking at least 60fps at ultra at the very minimum
as for bf4, it's really unoptimized atm so i can't really throw a ballpark figure, but the 760 should be able to get 60fps on medium easily

and whats with the sudden increase in budget to 1.1k :|
the build is fine though, idk how good that psu is, might be able to get something better as there are quite a lot of psu's on sale most of the time

GTX 760 doesn't offer anything over the GTX 670 other than having 7 in the title, while 670 is a faster video card:

someone pointed out going subpar now might create disappointment later on upcoming new games and I hate that feeling. tongue.gif

I thought I can get away with $600-700 rig to just play BF4, then I figured, why just build for one game? also, I can do some multimedia too.

Thanks for your input. thumb.gif
