    Another PC Update

    Not much has changed apart from me switching out the SLI 760's to a single 770 so that I can SLI those next year, saving me money and giving me more performance and a change in hard drive. A full list can be found below:

    Fractal Design Define R4
    Intel Core i5-4670K 3.40GHz
    Cooler Master Seidon 120M
    MSI Z87-G45 Intel Z87
    MSI GeForce GTX 770 4096MB Twin Frozr OC Dragon Gaming Graphics Card (SLI next year)
    Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 8GB (2x4GB)
    120GB OCZ Vertex 2 SATA II 2.5-inch Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
    2TB Seagate Barracuda XT 3.5" SATA III Hard Drive - HDD
    850W XFX Pro XXX Edition 80PLUS [P850X-XXB9]

    As for the price I will be paying around £1191.72 but I expect the price to go down nearer Christmas when I will be buying.
    Any thought on the build now I've improved it (in my mind)?

    You're going to have decreased performance coming from 2 760's to a 770. You probably already know that, but I would have suggested saving up to get both at the same time. You're going to be stuck with lower power for a while.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    But in the long run when I get another 770 it's obviously going to be better than 2 760's, I would prefer waiting a while to get more for my money than getting the power straight away.

    Funny we have the same specs but the Powersupply & CPU Cooler are different. I plan to order my parts on black Friday.
