Is this a pretty solid build?

I was wondering if this is a pretty good build. The 670 is just there to give a price example I don't know a good GPU for about $360. The 670 sounded pretty good. The PSU....I plan to SLI or Crossfire with whatever card I get in the future. I really like the 600T I don't think I would change it.


For less $, this build below makes more sense to me:

  1. Mobo has plenty to offer for the $ and should do well for most people.
  2. RAM has LOW PROFILE heat spreaders, so you can add just about any air CPU HSF, if you wanted to do that (which I know you have the water cooler already listed, just something to think about).
  3. GPU is better than the GTX 670 and priced pretty good. Otherwise I'd consider the GTX 770 (~$400) if you wanted to stick with Nvidia.
  4. Case is one of the best for the $ and has plenty of room.
  5. PSU is 80 PLUS Silver Certified and also has a 7 yr. Warranty too! Plenty for X-fire/SLI GPU's (unless your going with Titan/7990's).
  6. Added an SSD to speed things up around the OS and is big enough to put the OS, several games, and apps that you want quick load/boot times with.
