Ok so here it is. I need opinions on my monitor/mouse/headset everything. I use a palm grip if that matters and i already have a mousepad if it's needed.

Do I need more RAM or is it good?

Just tell me what I need.

Since your revision lowered the price should I add another 8Gigs of RAM? I will be able to afford it. Maybe some speakers too?

^ you should invest on bigger SSD to store more game installation files
120GB is enough only for OS and 1-2 games

swap the 120GB with this 500GB samsung evo

or dont you want to go for GTX 780? $500

^ more than 8GB of ram will not going to help you
it is either stronger gpu to provide more FPS
or bigger ssd so that you can get snappy experience

I will go with the gtx 780. Will a 3gb version by gigabyte do fine. For 509 dollars?

Also you have to keep in mind every dollar I add pushes this computer further away. So before telling me to add another 500 dollars remember that it's going to delay my purchase.

Last thing. I chose my previous case because of reviews. It is also smaller. The one you recommended to me has reviews saying it has some problems. And again maybe too large.

^ i thought a high end build like this need a room for future SLI
and ppl usually choose full tower roomy case like this

if you dont want to go SLI later, pick mid ATX case
honestly i am not into antec cases, my logic says eleven is better than nine. cheers :)
