Wondering what you guys think of a new rig I'm about to order and build.

  • i5 2500k
  • Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
  • GeForce GTX 670 4 Gig
  • As Rock Z77 Extreme 4
  • 1 TB HDD 7200 RPM
  • 8 Gig RAM
  • Cooler Master HAF 922
  • Basic DVD writer
  • OCZ ZT 750W
  • Logitech mouse
  • Microsoft Sidewinder X4
  • Windows 7 Home

I already have an Asus 27" monitor and some good Bose headphones. Total cost is ~ $1450

I would change out the 2gb GTX 680 and get a overclocked 4gb GTX 670.

You get the same performance while have more memory

4gb GTX 670

I'd go for something like thisinstead.


Though if you prefer Nvidia then the 670 is a good deal.
