Hey guys, with Cyber Monday coming up I figure now would be one of the better times to buy parts. A friend recommended this guide: http://www.hardware-revolution.com/b...november-2013/ so yesterday I went through it and pretty much went with the Tier 5 specs. Can you guys take a look at the parts I've chosen below and tell me what you think? The total price currently comes out at around $1000, but the prices might drop a bit more once Monday comes around.
The 770 is a tad faster than the 280X.
You WILL need a normal HDD or you will run out of space and/or ruin your SSD prematurely (though they're getting better by the day).
PSU... Rosewill PSUs has a stigma attached to them. You might want to look for another PSU.
Most of Rosewill PSUs are known for being cheap and fairly unreliable (thus taking your whole PC with it when it dies). The Newegg reviews are especially to not be trusted as Rosewill's Newegg's own brand.
Brands like Corsair, XFX, Coolermaster, Seasonic etc are all of higher quality in general.
