I added the memory and HDD that you suggested and I switched the Mobo and CPU, everything else is still the same I might get a bigger screen later on so I stuck with the 460 plus it's DX11 supported. Just to let you know this is my first time I've ever built on pc so will there be any extra cords or wires that I will need??? BTW the total is 719.88 everything is free shipping so far a little over budget but that was expected!!!
