everything is nice. really nice.... which OS are you planning... (AVOID 8) unless you have just wasted a ton of money on a touch monitor. the next computer i build with have the OS and things i want fast boots for on the SSD. Is that how you plan to use it? also, how many gb of RAM? don't forget your power source. also, out of curiosity, what will the total on this be?

You realize you have an Intel processor and AMD video card?

I will be using windows 7 and yes i will be using the ssd for boot. I'll be using the Corsair CX600 600w psu. not sure whether to go bigger or not and i'll be using 16GB's of ram. I was tempted to go overkill and get 32GB just so i could sit and evil laugh whenever i was at my pc.

The whole build costs £1256 from my local store that i am buying it from (free setup and repairs for life :D)

Will i suffer performance for that? i was unaware that was a thing. I went for the radeon because my current card is a radeon and it has not failed me yet however my current processor is also amd.

Which Nvidea card do you recommend as an alternative?

I would go with at least an 800 watt psu. If your getting a gaming GPU then those with a good proc will eat power.

Not really, I normally run an AMD proc with nvidia GPU. As far as video cards from nvidia.

Example: GTX 670
Gtx is a card type. Gtx are better then GT.

The 6 is the model series. Used to be synced to the year but that has changed. A 6xx is a newer card then a 5xx

The last 2 numbers is the quality. 90 is normally the best, 70 is a good gaming card, 50 is the lowest I would recommend for gaming and you will not be able to run higher end games on max.

Some cards have additional stuff like OC (over clocked) that follow the number.

I highly recommend PNY and ASUS nvidia cards: GTX 670+


One thing I will recommend is making sure your Northbridge matches the GPU. I ha e seen glitchy behavior from a mismatch.
