A decent build... I would have gotten a better graphics card and less hard drives, but otherwise OK.

I kind of a agree.

Consider that you spent ~$460 on monitors but only $300 on your card? When looking through your pictures, I was expecting an SLI setup... Three monitors led me to expect that...

Anyway, I'm sure it performs well. Good job and enjoy

I have the same exact card and it runs everything I want on high with no problems. I plan on upgrading in about a year or so, but for now, it was a great value that does great.

The GTX 660 is overpriced.. It doesn't give you as much performance as a 7950 would do but the 660 still costs more..

You might have a problem running higher resolutions on 3 monitors with the 660 ti. It only uses a 192 bit interface. Better off getting a 670 or 7950 if you were going to run Surround. But if you don't run Surround and only game on one monitor then a 660 ti is fine. http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/10/31/galaxy_geforce_gtx_660_ti_gc_3gb_sli_review/8#.UVoO75P4m6N

The build is nice, you underspent on the GPU for a gaming build. However, you get a thumbs up simply for that desk! It's awesome :D

Love the tri-monitor setup. But that GPU should not be that low a price considering the price on the machine as it stands.

1 gpu for a 3000, three monior gaming. Do you game on 1 with the other two just sitting there on the sides or what?

I don't think he has much choice with a 660 ti. He certainly won't be maxing games on those three monitors.

What stand do you have, could you put the link? Also you should add some more ram since you probably have tons of stuff on all three monitors.

or a 3200$ build I would expect atleast a 680, if not a Titan or a 690! But aside from that, nice build!!! very clean I would like to see inside the case if at all possible!

I agree with most that the 660ti is a little underwhelming for a budget as high as yours was.

On the plus side, fairly solid build.

Sweet Desk!!!!!

Maybe using three monitors is a bit of a strain of the Graphics card. Is one of them running off of the CPU's integrated graphics? The rest of the build is fine.

Why get 5 TB of 7200 RPM speed when you have a SSD? I would have gotten a 240 GB SSD to cut down on the need to move files, and then gotten a storage unit or some cheaper 5400 RPM hard drives for storage.

The life of a SSD increases dramatically if you can keep it at 50%-75% full vs. 90%+ full, and 120 GB will fill up faster than you think.

5400 RPM are pretty uncommon an you would not save much money by using them.

I don't understand why you got a GTX 660 especially for 3-monitor gaming but otherwise this build is beastly.

Why does the GPU run so hot i might be an idiot for asking the question but i am 12. And how is that Power Supply and how long you have to PSU?

They generally get that hot under load unless you have a very good cooling system. As for your second question, what do you mean by "how long you have to PSU?" PSU means Power Supply Unit.
