Default New PC Rig

Hi, I'm going to build a PC to play games such as Crysis and Empire: Total War on, on mid- to high-settings.

How does this setup look? Any advice on cheaper or more efficient parts is very appreciated. Thanks.

Default Re: New PC Rig

Are you planning on doing Crossfire in future? If not then that power supply is overkill; go for the Corsair VX550 if that is the case.

Good choice on everything else.

Are you planning on overclocking? That CPU+mobo combination is great for OCing.
