My System Specs


Looks like a good bundle for the motherboard/processor.

Pick up 8GB of 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM. Something like this would work.

Instead of the GTX660 that you posted, may I point you towards the Powercolor Radeon PCS+ HD7870 Tahiti LE for $249.99, $219.99 after rebates.

Instead of being a regular 7870, it's actually a 7950 with a quarter of the GCN modules disabled, and 2GB of memory instead of 3GB. Either way, it will be quite a bit faster than a GTX660, and you'll get two free AAA titles: Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
