It would definitely be a good difference to what you have now, especially with an SSD in there.

The parts at the moment will fit no problem.

However, I'd suggest a couple of changes (if you can):
- CPU: Downgrade to a i5 3570K if you're not going to be doing anything other than gaming (not video work and such), to save some money.
- RAM: Also overkill (see above), 8GB is enough for today. (You can always upgrade later if you need it).
- SSD: Get a bigger model if you can.
- PSU: Unless you're going to be using dual-graphics cards and such, a 500W/600W quality model should do.

All in all, there's nothing specifically wrong with your build, just that you can save a bit of money getting slightly cheaper stuff (for not much difference) if you're just gaming.

Looks good to me also. You may want to get the i5 3750k if it is available for a pretty easy overclock. I don't think the 3770 is a K model which means that it has a locked multiplier.

Everything looks good, get a 7950 instead, it'll perform just as good, it's a lot cheaper and it'll destroy the GTX 670 when you overclock it.

smile.gif


I downgraded the procc to Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4Ghz s1155 6MB, GPU Core, Tray
Ram to Corsair 1x8GB DDR3 1600Mhz
and the SSD up to Corsair Force GS 128GB SSD Sata III MLC 2.5 Inch Retail (not need more then 128 thou since i plan to keep it clear and use the 2T instead)
and the PSU to Corsair TX 650W V2 Active PFC 14cm Fan

if you anyone else have thoughts on it would like to hear if not so might hit the order and place in there,

i also dont plan to OC and such i mainly want to max BL1/2 do not care for any game FC3 crysis and such

thanks in advance!

A note about the ram, it's better to go dual-channel (meaning sets of 2), otherwise they work at half the speed they are supposed to.

Get a 2x4GB RAM set.
