I originally had a gtx 680 in this system but unfortunately it died and I had to return it for a full refund. went with a 7970 instead.
I build this pc build about a month and a half ago as a reward for finishing out the semester with 4.0. I built this computer primarily for Gaming and Streaming but have found my self using for more casual surfing and watching movies.... go figure.
I originally had a $2200 budget but ended up spending only 1700 and figured id save the rest for maybe a third monitor down the line, a second 7970 if they ever reduce the micro stuttering, or just put it right to my next build.
