    Get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127693 instead. It's the best 680 card there is.
    The one you linked is gigantic and takes 3 slots.

    Yes it is.
    Theres not a game I cannot play smoothly at 1080p. It's overkill... But it will hold a couple of years

    It's the quietest 680 there is. I can not hear it while gaming at all.

    Exactly. Building yourself is more fun and you get to choose the parts yourself & save a ton of cash.

    Honestly, I've never done it. Spent maybe a month watching videos on youtube, browsing the computer forum here on MMO and felt comfortable enough to do it. Now that I've done it once I can safely say it's incredibly easy.

    I've now got a full system that's powerful enough to run all games on full ultra and it cost me about £1200 for absolutely everything.

    I bought my first new computer and the end of this summer, my old one i had just upgraded bits and pieces off but it was starting to become beyond repair. I didnt feel comfortable enough to build my own PC (I know its not hard but i chose not to) So i did alot of research and found a small business where they built their PC's and sold em without and operative system.

    So minus the costs of purchasing a operative system (My friend had a spare key) and + the amount it would cost for them to build it there were barely any price difference, i still am really happy with the computer i bought and i probably will be for a few more years atleast

    I just finished piecing together a build for me later on down the road come tax season. It's a few hundred cheaper than the one listed prior in the thread but I feel like it would perform just as nice.

    comparing a 660 to a 680 is a long shot xD (they perform on entirely different levels, almost if not factor 2 like)
    i'd recommend you'd swap the 660 to a 660Ti instead , you'll love the extra punch it will provide.

    I already have the gpu. Its plenty fast for what I need. I did end up going with the signature series though.
    I mostly play WoW, D3 and a few games on steam. I really wish I found this site before Thanksgiving.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D=3938566&SID=
    That's the card I'm using

    Comparing this 660 and 660ti signature FTW edition the only difference is the amount of Cuda cores. I know this is off topic really for this thread but it might help him a little

    Origin are making their combinations very good, they do a VERY good job in Min-Maxing where you get the most bang with lowest cash involved.
    The problem with them is that, somehow, they overcharge the work they put on making the setup ( not talking about parts of the comp, just their work ). They do a great job, but asking too much for it.
    But, as the builds are already made, it gets a little cheaper then to make the comp yourself.

    +1 on this.
    Yeah, you really can not compare 660 with an 680, it's a very longshot. even comparing 670 with 680 is a pretty long shot.

    Go for 660Ti or ATi equivalent if it's cheaper. At least you wouldn't need to change the card next year.
