I'll probably get the second 660 and start saving up again, so in the future I'll be able to get a couple of flagships (hell, maybe even the new 800 series, if they're out by then) and be set for 5-6 years or more.

    Generally, what im looking for is a silent system that will look good both on my desk and on the inside. The bitfenix case is something that fits the good-looking criteria, however from what I've understood noone really believes its suited for a build like this.

    Also, I'd like to clarify something. Im not a noob and this is not my first build. I have built plenty of systems for my family, friends and even random people that happened to hear about what I do. So I've been meaning to get my own build going for a long time, but waited for a good amount of money and knowledge before I start. This is where I lead myself.

    @solomonjo0 Thanks for the feedback, all the cases you and @BlueTreesTV mentioned look great, however the availability of parts here in greece is limited, and the taxes to ship them from anywhere else are huge. So I just went for the prettiest one I could find, looked up a couple of reviews and videos, saw a couple of builds with it and decided that for that price, its what I need. Unfortunately all the cases both of you mentioned are either not available or too expensive, so I'll just go cry in a corner.


    What else? Any corrections/suggestions on the rest of the parts? I'll be using the system to game and record, video/photo edit and maybye stream from time to time. I'll also be hosting small servers for 5-6 people on minecraft and CoD4. Those will only be used over LAN with my friends though.
    Okay...i see! get a 4770k http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116901if you buy a liquid cooler,get a 780 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121779
    more is simply not needed.
    a 780 is just what you need! and you will get the biggest performance jump with the setup i just mentioned

    I thought really hard about getting a 4770k, but I decided that since I will not be overclocking it there's no need to pay an extra 30 euros for just an unlocked multiplier. As for the 780.. As I said its way over my budget at the moment, so I'll just wait till prices drop and my savings rise.

    Naw, my point was that SLI'ing anything less than flagships is useless, and to rather invest in a single card. You could most like sell your 660 for 130-145 euro, and pick up something like a 770 with the combined cash. I'd also switch out that mobo for an Asus Sabertooth Z87, as that Gigabyte one is a terrible board for the price. I'd personally also switch every fan you're planning on buying with Noctuas (best fans in existence), but that's just me.
    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.

    Why not get the equivalent AMD parts instead? You'll save money in a few areas and might be able to get a better GFX card

    I've seen the noctuas, and from what I hear they're awesome, but those colors.. I hate them. As for the motherboard, I like the gigabyte board externally, but that's the last I should care about since its as bad as you say. I dont have enough time at the moment to look for reviews etc. I'll look it up later and post back. (and that dual LAN would have been extremely usefull for my setup.. ) And finally, about the card, I might do just that. It will also make my build more futureproof. Its just, you know that feeling when you have a card since its release, and you were SO proud of it back then, and now its just a "meh".. I kinda feel bad about it
    @Justin I built a system with an FX-8350 and even though im satisfied with its performance, it runs REALLY FUCKING HOT, and since the H60 im getting is known to have a noisy fan I dont want to risk it. Plus, I've been using intel/nvidia systems my whole life, im not very eager to switch now. I was, but I had a GPU fail on me.. I took it back and decided to exchange it for the 660 im using.

    I would sell your current 660 and buy a 760/770 if they aren't too expensive for you.

    770's are way off, however I think I could pull off something like this..
    Gainward GeForce GTX760 2GB Phantom - 238€


    This one has both the look and the performance I'm looking for. Worth it or not?
