good thanks. A UPS is some thing I don't have yet and desperately need. I was playing Assassin creed 4 earlier, the power flickers and my pc restarts. Just showing me, once again, that as soon as I can scrape up some money a UPS is what I need first before a SSD or a new HDD.
I did not know about these till 1yr ago.

and looking to buy a 760 GPU with the R4 what cooler style should I get? I am thinking blower to get the heat out of the case.
Did you build that, if so how did it turn out? I am planning on my first build ever. I like the idea of the steam box (MicroATX), but I am also looking at possible a mid ATX tower using the Fractal Design R4 case. Besides adding ram and a sound card about 15yrs ago, I have never done a build or major upgrade. It would like to say I would upgrade my build but most likely I wont. I have three kids 5yr, 2,and 6mo. I am the only bread winner in the house, my wife is a stay at home mom. So I am normally strapped for cash. The build that I do will take place over several months. When it is done I need to be very happy with it for it will have to last for a long time.
I think that I should switch the ssd for a hdd. I had gone with the 120gb over the 60gb do to price. I am not sure that a ssd would make much of a difference.
Well let me know what you all think.
