  1. I think 12GB RAM is a little excessive.

    And are you planning to overclock your CPU?

    And when are you planning to upgrade your 560?
  2. all right i will look to downgrade the RAM. also i dont think i will OC. And i think i would probably upgrade my 560 after Christmas
  3. change that i7 to an i5 2400 it runs on par with it gaming

    change your hdd to a samsung spinpoint f3 1tb hdd it is faster and cheaper- http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Spinpoint-3-5-Inch-Internal-HD103SJ/dp/B002MQC0P8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1309122143&sr=8-2

    1155 mobo's cant tri channel ram. so no 12gb only 4, 8, or 16gb sets. 4 is all that is needed for gaming but 8 is more so the standard

    wireless internet is not good if you are gaming you want a direct connection to your router with an ethernet cable

    the 1200 is a little pricey how about this case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147107&Tpk=rosewill%20blackhawk

    no sound card is needed unless you have a 500$ set of speakers where you can actually tell the difference. the motherboard's onboard sound is fine

    with the money you saved grab a 750w psu so you can sli- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703027&cm_re=750w_power_supply-_-17-703-027-_-Product
