Now, I know that my suggestion is with a GTX 760 instead of a GTX 770 and it has a 22" instead of a 24" monitor, but it does have a good case, Corsair mechanical keyboard (trust me, when you go mechanical keyboard once, you will never want to go back) and a good set of speakers all in cliche black/red style.

There is no mouse though. I think you should go to a media store and check the mice on location. A mouse that is amazingly comfortable could be a disaster to somebody else. Wrong mouse in the wrong hand can cause strain, pain and tons of discomfort - a bit of wisdom from a guy who usually does 8 hours of 3D modeling daily.

If you're going to be streaming, an i5 won't be enough to do it well. I'm going to recommend an AMD 8 core instead.

The extra cores of an FX 8320 or 8350 will make a big difference when streaming. It will also perform similarly to an i5 in most games, sometimes a bit better in heavily threaded games like Arma and Crysis. And the TCO is about the same as a good i5...it uses a little more power but costs less up front. (* $200 for CPU and ~$140-$150 for a decent 990FX Board)

Here's a comparison video specifically focussed on streaming to give you some idea of why the AMD might be a good pick for what you have planned:

I find the trust gxt 120 mouse really comfortable for modeling and rendering. it sells cheap as well ^^

Tier 3 supplies are not bad for a budget build. Besides that PSU hasn't got bad reviews.
Quote:
Tier 3 power supplies fully meet all ATX requirements for power output quality, but don't have as good of power output quality as above tiers. No reason to replace one if you have one, and they're still good choices for most systems.

well true. but fact is my neighbor just ordered 12 of those psus for his company.
leaving aside the part that 5 were defect from the start 3 of them managed to fry the mainboard.
I don't know how they perform for other people but I would never admit them being safe after seeing that.
for a new build I see no reason in not getting tier 2b or higher when is not expensiver (more than 20$)

Well I haven't heard cases like that. Still if the op wants to spend more, and he can, a better psu is here-http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seasonic-power-supply-s12i...

tier 3 psus own mixed low quality with medium quality capacitors as well.
you are right they are safe. but for some high overclocking they won't be as safe anymore.
from what I know some of them use suscom capacitors which are scary stuff.

indeed. for psus with lower wattage the most recommendable psus are made by: super flower, antec, seasonic, xfx, corsair (except builder and cx series). of course that depends on the price now ^^
sorry that I pointed that out a bit desperately but I did not hear that case. I saw it :( (

Now, I would not like to confuse the OP by going into mumbo jumbo tech spec, I just can say that its not a bad psu and has got a great price/performance ratio. He can go with the seasonic one if he would like to spend more. Obviously, with more money, comes more satisfaction.

This is one of the best PSUs you can get; SeaSonic is a tight and solid power supply creator/distributor.

unknown reason I can't edit the post o.O
hmm gaming headphones:
try those
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
if you "really need" the microphone on them.

else I would simply buy some studio headsets because they are hell lotsa better than any gaming (just a name for selling purposes) craposets.
funny is I had some sony mdr-v55 audio fashion headsets (which are honestly crap for the money they ask) and the difference was extremely huge between them and gaming headphones in all tasks (gaming, music, videos...). Logitech G930 is a complete joke
