  1. Downgrade to 8GB of RAM and get a GTX 560 Ti
  2. Thanks for the advise, though do you have any particular reason why?
  3. Yes,.....

    -16GB will do nothing for you that 8GB won't do unless you thinking workstation apps, photo or video editing.

    - the 560 Ti will shortly be 2 generations old

    - Also, I can't make a case for AMD CPU's in a build above $800.

    -Two of these 750 GB HD's are same price as the selected 1TB
  4. +1 to the above advise
