The build is reasonable, few things could be changed maybe but at least they don't want a raptor like you do I believe.

Very nice build. Pretty similar to mine & I'm more than happy with mine. It'll do the job you want it to do competently although I'm not struck on your choice of PSU it depends on the OEM.

I'd get the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H instead. It does cost $40 more but it carries Loads of features. :thumbsup:

You won't need 850W of power. A 700-750W PSU would be enough even when you want to upgrade, say, your GPU or grab another 560Ti for SLI. Get something like the Corsair TX750V2 and be happy. EDIT: Just realized you're shopping from Microcenter. 850W for $109.99 is really quite cheap.

For the Case, I'd suggest getting the Coolermaster HAF 922 instead. It performs better in terms of Airflow and Lower noise compared to the Antec 900/1100. However, You'd need to spend ~$20 for an additional 200mm fan for Side intake. It'd help cool your GPU.

also people have been suggesting me a 7850 instead of my 560 ti with a new PSU. is the link below a good deal?

I would get a 80 Plus gold if I were you worth it in the long run I got a Rosewill Capstone 80 Plus gold 650watt for 109.00 on newegg.

By any chance would you like my EVGA 560 ti superclocked DS card for 200 plus shipping?

 

Other then swapping out to my card, I would say that switching the SSD to a vertex 120 rather than an agility 120 is about the only thing that would make this a better build aside from what other people have already mentioned.

If I hadn't already bought my 7850 I would take you up on that...
