My System Specs


Just so that you're aware, the Corsair H80 will fit in that case and should provide substantially better cooling than the downdraft cooler that you're looking at. Plus it will exhaust that warm air outside of your case, instead of circulating it inside.

Corsair H80 - $89.99


Also, Nice choice of Case, BTW.

IF your max resolution is 1080P, you could easily get away with a 660Ti and max everything. I'd even say that a GTX660 would be enough to max all games at 1080P, but the 660Ti is more playing it safe.

I seriously doubt that any of the manufacturers will be releasing a new generation of cards before the new year. AMD will be the first, and the 7970 wasn't hard launched until January of this year. I wouldn't bother waiting.

Go for the Crucial M4.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Coolermaster GeminII; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI R7-260X; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 1TB WD Green, 2x 2TB WD Green; PC P&C 750W PS; Fractal Design Node 605;
Son's Rig: M5A97; 1055T; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; ASUS GTX650Ti Boost; 80GB Intel 520 SSD; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
