Hi.

I was wondering what do you guys think of these parts list. One is Intel and Nvidia based and the other AMD based. I want to be able to use it moderately for games like simcity, indie games, battlefield 4, games that are not on playstation 4. I already have two 120GB SSDs and a 64 bit windows 8 and windows 7 copies (thank you dreamspark!).

Thanks.

P.S. - I prefer miniITX. I have not found any minimalistic cases yet. What are you thoughts of leaving it open. Or putting it in a acrylic box.

Intel, but replace the 750Ti with a 265 or a 270. Find better ram for that price..

What about the rest of the components?

I have the SSDs. I have the windows copies. I have to find some suitable cases and cheap coolers.

Cooler master mkes great air coolers! CM Hyper 212 plus and evo are good choices and cheap.

Why is the 265 or 270 preferred over 750Ti?

Cool thanks. And if I preferred a Nvidia GPU for the intel build? What would you recommend.
