Here is a picture of it installed, I have since changed the motherboard to a Z77 and installed the 3770K.

Nice! So I guess I will get the -3770k and the same mobo. Will decide on a gfx card and case later on. Thank you all for the help, much appreciated!

The 660ti runs games real sweet, I have yet to see it struggle in my games, I mainly play BF3 and Dirt 3 on it.

The motherboard I have now is a Asrock Z77 Extreme 4, not the one I had in the picture I posted, that's my old P67 Evo.

The Asrock seems very good so far, boot times are awesome and it's been very easy to overclock with it.

Niceee! I posted in another thread with 3 options the 660superclocked, 660ti and the Radeon HD 7870 for some help on choosing one. I'm generally leaning towards the 660ti but my friends have been telling me the Radeon cards are the better bang for the buck lol

The AMD cards are real good value, I don't know how prices are where you live, but in the UK right now the 7950 is around the same price as the 660ti, they are both very close in terms of performance, it varies from test to test. The 7870 is around 50 cheaper right now in the UK than the 660ti and is a real good card for the money.

My card was a bit more expensive than the rest because I went for the 3GB version, it does its job but I am sure the AMD cards will do the job too. I have no preference, I have chopped and changed from AMD/ATI to Nvidia a few times.

I'm ordering all my parts from amazon. Honestly I'll be buying the card next month, getting the cpu and mobo for now. Just finished school and working at my first job so not all that wealthy as yet lol. Maybe the prices might change a bit around Christmas time. But as for now I want the 660ti not a big fan of the AMD cards.

Do you run your games at the highest settings?

I run all the games on maximum settings except BF3 where I lower 1 setting as it hammers the GPU and I don't really notice the difference with it on.

It's a pretty impressive card, I just wish I had more time to use it, I have not played a game for over a week, I need to get my games reinstalled and crack on with it!

In case you don't know I only got the 3770K and new motherboard on Friday so I have only just finished setting it all up as I want it. I had a 2600k before.

Oh nice! Hopefully mine will come together as smoothly as yours did.

Again Thank you for the help. It was much appreciated. I will post back if I'm have any other problems.

Happy gaming
