Description

Bought a 120 gb SSD and everyone who said it wouldn't be enough was absolutely right. I filled it within 4 hours of first turning it on. Bought a 2tb hdd a few days later. If I did it again I would buy a 64gb SSD and only put the OS on it as there's not much difference in load times on games between the SSD and HDD

Cable management is pretty poor I think. The case isn't well designed for it and I'm a bit lazy.

The wiring for the front panels and on switch was the most tricky. The usb 2.0 on the front panel doesn't work. I'll get round to fixing it at some point.

Plays games really well. BF3 ultra, Planetside 2 on high. Mostly played LFD2 and total war with a friend so far though. good fun.

Question: I'd quite like to use two monitors though - one for a game, the other for a browser. I've got a 17 inch 720p screen I'd like to plug in as well as my new 23" AOC 1080p monitor. the AOC is plugged in to the HDMI slot on the gtx 660. dvi. What's the best way to plug my 17" in? DVI? there are two DVI slots on my graphics card. If I'm using one of them does that mean both monitors need to be plugged in to both DVI slots for them both to work or can one be connected to HDMI and the other DVI? cheers

Also what upgrades should I be looking out for in a year or two's time?

You are likely going to want to throw in another 660 later if your motherboard supports it eventually. Good build!

Your mobo will handle the crossfire with the 660. :) Pretty solid build. I was wondering, I am going to buy the same PSU. What do you think of it?
Yeah oops, You could change the mobo if you so desire but I would personally wait at least after the end of January 2014... Idk where AM3 is going nowadays

I thought nVidia cards used SLI, not crossfire. And this MOBO doesn't support SLI.
