Looking for help/advice with a new gaming build!

Hello, I have a part list here that I need some help/advice with:

CPU - Intel i5 3570(K?)
Motherboard - Asus P8Z77-M
GPU - MSI Gaming N760
PSU - Corsair CX600M
Case - Arc Mini Black (On sale for $50)
Memory - ?
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Optical Drive - Asus DVD Burner

(My budget is around $800-$850)


My questions are would the Arc Midi R2 and a full ATX board be better? I like small, compact, quiet rigs, and what is some good memory for this (Preferably 8gb)? Is that Asus motherboard good enough? Is it worth getting the 3570k or 3570 if I don't intend to over clock, but might in the future?

I wouldn't mind giving up some of the parts to lower the price because without the ram, it's $800 on Newegg. The only things I would like to keep if some things are given up are the GPU, Case, and maybe CPU because I want an i5 in this build.

My main priorities with this build are gaming, recording, multitasking, video editing, and things like Photoshop.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

What games are you going to be playing, and when you say video editing are you going to be doing 3D editing, and how much multitasking are you going to be doing (how many things up at the same time)? :3

I want to play games such as Minecraft, Far Cry 3, Skyrim, BF3, BF4, Crysis, and other popular games. I also wanna stay with Nvidia because I heard it performs better in the games I mentioned.

As for multitasking, a game, my browser, Skype, FRAPS or Dxtory, not much really. The computer I have now has a big drop in FPS when I open my browser or Skype, etc.

For video editing I would like to edit videos I record of the games I mentioned.

I'm sure you've seen it, but they released the system requirements for BF4 http://battlefieldo.com/attachments/1175633_51003774241...
i am pretty sure if you have that or anything (which you have) you can run any game at nice frames. I would suggest highly on getting 16gb ram, maybe lower some of your components down a bit to afford it. Its not really for the multitasking but for all the rendering you will have to do, done a bit of it in my time and i wish i had something more than 8gb :p  just make sure your pc runs cool and other than that, you should be good to go :3
