$1200 gaming build

Thoughts on this build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/GI1c?

With $1200 you can fit in a 7970 in there! well almost


This mobo is a great for OCing as well. Since it's gaming, I personally would remove the ssd as it'll only provide faster loading speeds and I could live with avg loading time and boot time, but thats just my input!


This is not for myself it is for a friend. I like the sabertooth because of the highquality components and that 5 year warranty. I also want him to have enough power for future crossfire and possibly some ocing. So I went with the xfx 850 watt psu.
