Description

Not bad for my first ever pc and gaming build :) Really happy with the speed and how easy it was to build. Thanks to pccasegear.com for the really quick postage. Took me 5 hours as I was a n00b and tried to boot with my graphics card with no drivers. Whoops. Cost me $1300ish for it all, I already had a HDD and DVD drive to use in this build so they were free.

For the commentors, I live in AUS hence the high price, not just for gaming, for youtube video editing, programming and other cpu high intensive tasks hence the 4770k. GPU 660 is perfect for a single 1440x900 monitor to play games on :) Playing Metro Last Light and it runs with fraps recording like a dream on very high maxed out so i'm very happy with my build, sure I could have chosen other parts but the ones I have chosen work wonderfully together.

The 660... sigh... Why would you even get that processor with that GPU? No bottlenecking but the balancing is horrid lol

Honestly, I don't think there is anything wrong with this build. When dealing with foreign currencies and shipping to different countries, you have to make do sometimes. You probably would have gotten more mileage with an 7870 or something, but for your stated tasks, programming, video editing, etc. I think it is fine.

Interesting choice with the i7 over the i5 and the 660.

-1 for poor part balancing.

shouldnt have gotten a 4770k if you're gonna cheap out on the gpu or even at all since games don't take full advantage of hyperthreading. Shouldve gotten a 680 or better imo or downgraded the cpu to an i5 4670k. downvote for poor part balancing.

Someone downvoted your comment so I voted it up again, why would someone downvote when you're right? Lmao

Looks too powerful for that GTX 660, either scale up the GPU or scale down the CPU, you can get away with a smaller PSU since a mini ITX isn't doing any SLI.

However, with that CPU you currently have, a GTX 780 would look nice ;)

This was poor balancing. If you were doing video editing. It would have been a good choice but the i7 was really unnessisary for gaming. An i5 would have been a really good choice then get a GPU that was $100 more.

Or if it were really strictly for gaming you could have gone the AMD route and got a really high-end GPU.

i am doing programming and video editing as well :P also best prices I could get and the 660 performs well for the games I want to play, eg Metro LL and stuff :)

You do know that you could've gotten much better deals right? Even if you are doing video editing you could've you could've spent less money by going with the 3770k which still hyperthreads if you really wanted that and then you could spend extra on the GPU from what you saved and got a GTX 670 or something like that which would definitely benefit you more. I honestly feel like that because I really hate the 660/660ti lol, it's just a bad card and I wish NVIDIA never released it xD

i hate people who keep on suggesting gtx 670. 760 gets almost the exact same performance for $260

Oops that card slipped out of my mind.

Why do you hate the 660 and 660ti. They were the best bang for your buck video card a couple months back.

Still would never get them. More specifically I just hate the 660ti. The 192-bit memory bus interface keeps it from performing at what it should really be performing at. I'd tell someone to look into the 7850/7870 any day.

Actually no they weren't they have always been limited and compared to the same priced AMD cards could not compete so no they have NEVER been best bang for your buck cards. Just because a few big names gave misleading reviews on these cards, people went crazy thinking they are good then defending them because they don't want to be wrong with their choices. Just researching and testing their memory bandwidth compared to the competition puts these cards as worthless in my book unless you are doing things other than gaming that require cuda cores.

He said he got these parts from pccasegear which is an Australian store and unfortunately in Australia prices are alot higher and keep going up so for $1300 it isn't that bad, but it's not the best.
