$80 after MIR, if you don't mind NCIX.


I've never heard of NCIX before, but I'm willing to look into it if they are reliable.

Why are you stuck on the Fortress? Not that it's a bad unit, but you can have units of similar quality for much cheaper;

That Corsair is nowhere near similar quality to a Rosewill Fortress... nowhere.

You should be getting a GTX 780 instead.


Most reviews I've read say that the difference between a 770/780 isn't enough to justify the price. I also like that the card I've picked has 4gb of vid ram.

Is there an equivalent 780 with that much ram/price?


The price difference from a reference 770 to a 4GB Classified isn't worth it either, and you won't be driving 4GB with a single 770 either. Just get a 3GB 780 and cut back on other parts of the build.

They are.

Unless you plan on getting a 1440p monitor (and I can't begin to tell you how much I recommend you do), you won't be using that extra gb of VRAM.
