ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I'm looking to spend a little more now to have something scalable for the future (hence the i7, ability to go up to 16gb ram). I won't have more than 2-3 games installed at once, so storage won't be a big issue.
REALLY NEED SOME ADVICE ON: compatability, PSU size, better / cheaper parts - most of this was modified from other posts on here.
Your help is VERY much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
