Solid build sir. Work on the cable management a tad and it'll be really nice and presentable! +1

 
 
rorro [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

thanks! would you have used any other parts? or different ?

 
 
skemble [16 Builds] 3 points 14 months ago

Personally I would have gone with a 7950. Similar price range as the 660ti, but performs a bit better. That GPU is perfectly fine, just my opinions mostly.

Also you could have gone with 8Gb RAM. Unless you're doing anything RAM intensive you won't go over 8 in a gaming situation.

thanks for the advice!

Decent build - a few things I can critique: I'd have dropped the h100i to a Cooler Master hyper 212 Evo, dropped the ram to 8GB of 1600Mhz and maybe gotten a Corsair 300r or Vengeance c70 and used the saved money for a far stronger GTX 770 or AMD HD 7970 GHz Edition as the savings from the two parts selections would have afforded the GPU upgrade without needing to change the case. Other than that happy gaming!

thanks! i forgot to update i got the gpu for 100 dollars from a friend i am looking at what to buy thanks for the advice

(THanks for correct prices) Please correct the price in the list and add more to the description so more of us aren't confused. We can't give accurate feed back if you don't give us accurate information because we can't read your mind and find out you paid $100 for the GPU :P

Currently, the NZXT T40 slightly outperforms the 212 Evo, and its $10 cheaper.

Yeah, I discovered that when looking through CPU coolers. I saw it and I thought "How many people could have gotten this instead of a 212 evo?"

 
 
IamApropos [3 Builds] 2 points 14 months ago

save $10 heck ya!! every little $10 here and there add up quick

 
 
zypherstones [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

OUCH! That SSD price is ridiculous. I sincerely hope you didn't pay that price you ahve listed.

 
 
rorro [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

no i didn't forgot to edit that sorry i had a 120gb at home thoughts about it and what you would have done different?

 
 
zypherstones [1 Build] 2 points 14 months ago

Just wondering, how's you get a 660ti PE for 100$?

 
 
epiccaveman47 1 point 14 months ago

work on cable management(its a bit messy)

 
 
rorro [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

thanks my air conditioning broke down so its kind of hot inside :/ will work on it soon! anything else?

 
 
itzzjason 1 point 14 months ago

turn the psu over so that the fan is on the bottom. the way you have it now, it's sucking up the cool air and less air is getting to the video card

 
 
rorro [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

thanks! will do tomorrow morning

Someone downvoted you? That's a completely valid statement.

 
 
rorro [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

and why?

 
 
miniclipgamer [2 Builds] 0 points 14 months ago

I was talking to itzzjason, and his statement was valid because you should have your PSU facing down so that it won't compete for air with the GPU.

 
 
nazehahmed 1 point 14 months ago

this is not your photo its just aphoto that u got from some where else and the prove : your psu is 800 w and its not the same in the picture is corsair gs 700 and the ram is a stick of 8 gigs of corsair vengeance non lp OR you got wrong with your parts list
