Some of the prices may be a little off/ rounded up or down but you get the gist!
Why the two 660s? Well initially my main reason for getting this was 1080p gaming, and I also own an Nvidia Shield which meant AMD was out of the equation. I required a 650 or above to stream games from my shield.
After reading reviews, a 660 possessed awesome bang for buck 1080p gaming. It was either that or the 650 Ti Boost, which is an awesome card, but came across as a bit clunky and power hungry.
So initially my build was a single 660. That is until Christmas Day. After loading up BF4 my computer died! The 500w PSU that came with a previous case had died on me, so from there I bought the corsair 750w as it seemed a good deal, and then, for the sake of it, added another 660 as I now had the power supply to do so :).
I just purchased the Thermaltake case (in blue, look at the pics) which looks beautiful compared to some 'generic' black gamer case I had previous, and I now classify my build as complete. I also have some UV light strips on the way to light it up! Woop!
I know SLI isn't always an ideal solution, but this thing runs phenomenal and will carry me through this generation of games and I really don't notice any stutter etc. I think that gets over exaggerated?
I have a lot of praise for the CPU cooler too, gets me a 4.5 overclock on air alone with a ton of case fans in there I have amassed over the past few years. And the 8350... what a beast! If a game uses all of the cores the 8350 is without a doubt the best valued processor, and the games that don't use many cores are usually older and run fine anyway!
So, the only games I struggle with at the moment are unoptimized alphas like DayZ, Rust etc. Which will be fixed in time!
Any comments? :D
