Description

This is my first build. Was kind of nervous but watched a lot of youtube videos and took in 12+ hours (confused a bit with the wiring) Please let me know what you guys think. I will update the price soon, I estimate under $1000 including rebate + 23" Asus monitor. Time to sleep :)

Price updated includes all rebates + tax + shipping cost. My main purpose for this machine is photo editing + some gaming. Decided to go with this particular ram as it was $20 extra compared to the ram I was looking for.

That RAM is definitely overkill if you plan just to game. Except for that, it's an excellent build! +1

Being lazy with the pics like a lot of builds will cost you lots up votes. -1 from me

Not bad

Cons: Ram is overkill for gaming (at least that's what I think you're doing with it)

Pros: SSD, good case, Intel I7, good PSU

8.5/10 (don't be rude about my rating system)

Maybe he could be doing RAMDisk to speed up games.

Why did you overkill on most parts except the GPU? for gaming that's probably one of the most important parts...

Why wasn't anyone noticed this yet? He has an unlocked i7 and a Z87 mobo, why no after market CPU cooler for OCing?

Who knows, OP might add a aftermarket later on down the line. Or just really wanted the mobo.

A lot of your parts are overpriced, but the brands and "models" are on the right track.

Nice, solid first build. However, at this point in time, there is nothing beastly about a GTX 660. As other suggested, you would have had a better performing rig by toning down RAM and CPU and putting that money into a nicer GPU.
