mobo- Asus z87 sabertooth
Gpu- ati 7950
Ram-Corsair Vengeance pro 1600
Hdd-1TB seagate barracuda
Sdd-samsung 120gb sata3 ssd
Cpu cooling- Coolermaster seidon 120m
Case- Aerocool 6th element

Any comments are appreciated :)

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. :p also, out of curiosity, what will the total on this be?

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)

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