First Gaming PC Build

I am going to be building my first PC soon hopefully within the next month it just depends on when I have the money. I just have a couple of questions first and I want to make sure I am getting the best I can for what I want all around €950.

  • CPU: Intel i5 3570k
  • Motherboard: MSI Z77a G45
  • Graphics Card: EVGA 3GB Superclocked GTX 660ti or MSI 2GB GTX 660ti Power Edition
  • RAM: Corsair XMS3 DDR3 8GB (2x4GB) 1600Mhz
  • Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 or Cooler Master Storm Scout
  • Storage: 120GB OCZ SSD + 1TB Seagate Barracuda Green
  • CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
  • PSU: Modular 850W Powercool

Is the power supply enough for two way SLI in the future?

Which case is better?

Will SLI run at pcie 3.0 at 16x and 16x, 16x and 8x or 8x and 8x?

Can I save money on any parts with out losing performance?

At the moment I plan to buy my parts off or is there a cheaper website that ships to Ireland?

The motherboard you listed will run two cards at 16x and 16x. The rest is subjective so I will leave it for some one who knows a little more about these parts.

I'll catch on these in the morning... if I can... hard to get sleep, do a job and keep on here with the

OVER NINE THOUSAND  builds daily lol

Okay thanks.


day off work, NOW I'm really going to work on this

Let me know how much is that after shipping so I know wether or not to edit it

I am having some problems with my account but the cost of all them parts without shipping is already €200 over my budget. I would rather go with nvidia for the graphics card for the extra features they offer and would I need to upgrade my power supply if I go to SLI in the future?

that's weird?  I would get a 750w for SLI
