The Airflow from the top of the case and orientation of the motherboard will make for optimum airflow that should yield better results than in reviews while maintaining the quietness.
The GTX 660ti? I saw no real drop in performance from the GTX 680 to 670 on 1080p and frames where well beyond 60 per sec in all games, hence the decision to go with it. I haven't looked at the 660ti yet but I thought the 670 gave enough room for future games that will be more demanding. I'll def check it out. Tbh gpu is the last place I want to compromise.
I started reading in customer feedback and forums about the poor reliability of OCZ ssds.it's a shame as the numbers on the vertex4 were impressive. Is that why you prefer the M4 or does it perform on par with the vertext4.
I appreciate your help.
The OCZ drives are actually fairly reliable it was a controller issue that has since been fixed.
The m4 has great speed and is one of the most reliable drives out there so I would go for it.
For the GPU I would go with the MSI PE, it is a very impressive card for the price.
