you should post links to the items so we can more easily see the specs on the items you picked, Not THAT familiar with AMD but the build looks ok to me except the PS, Corsair is good but they now sell two variations made by different companies, The TX and up are solid but the CX are lower end, Seasonic makes the TX and it what I'm using for many years now. This one would serve you much better and is a solid performer for a good price.

This was the ram that was suggested to me, Although I DO like the G-skill Sniper ram but this has the same timing and a little cheaper, I would go with a single stick of 8 gig so it leaves more room to upgrade when you have a little more spare money.

2x4 gig

also found the 750TI superclocked by EVGA a little cheaper than the MSI, It's a tad faster stock over the MSI but you can easily OC with the programs that come with these cards so you can get the same performance from either one, but being stock and faster is kind of nice.

make sure you list what your actual budget is in order to receive suggestions that won't break your budget.

I ain't an expert, but I would probably go with a gtx 660 over a gtx 750/750ti. The 750 doesn't seem to pack much of a punch according to the Nvidia's chart, GTX650ti BOOST seems to have better performance, althought it may have some new features that make it more preferable besides the 'ultra-quiet'.

If you can afford it though, try going for a GTX 760.

edit: By afford, I mean it won't break budget

Hopefully not. It was part of our anti-spam measures... they work but are not intelligent at all.

Buy yourself a cheap 30 dollar case, drop the ram, and get these instead.

Actually the 750ti is about the same performance as a 660 with much less power draw.

Yea, I read up on the power draw and its a perfect solution for those who have "off the shelf" pc's (power supply) and want to use them for gaming.

Of course, I will take your word that it is at the same level of a 660. Just confused due to Nvidia's own benchmarking results listed under the 750/750ti have it lower than the 660.

I said about the same performance, but never go by the chip makers benchmarks lol.

THe thing is you can get the 750ti for cheaper than both the 650ti boost and 660 and the absolute maximum consumption is less than 75w. We will be seeing single slot cards with no power connector required soon I suspect, and cheaper than 150 as well.
