Apparently I didn't post this right so here it goes. Hey guys, I have all this on my Newegg wish list and think it will be a pretty good build. I have a Samsung 830 series 128 GB SSD already at home for the OS so that is why it is not in the list. Give me some pointers, critique what I chose, I want some feedback. I had a hell of a time figuring out if I wanted an i7 or an i5 and decided on the i5 after reading a lot of i7 is not really that much of an improvement in gaming comments. I also had one hell of a time deciding on the gtx 680 over a 7970 ghz edition. I know the 7970 is more powerful as far as max FPS but I have read multiple times over that the 680 is smoother with games.

>>30004044 What he's getting at is that at 1920x1080, you won't notice a difference in what processor you buy, unless it's way fucking lowend.
