So I found this build online and wondering if there are any flaws or anything to this build.

I want to build a computer for gaming (probably highest quality possible) and everyday activities (web browsing, chatting, word documents, music, movies, downloads, etc.) I want to be able to multitask quickly. I was wondering if this computer would be overkill for what I want to be doing. I also plan on dual screening, if that changes anything.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

AMD's processors are considered terrible for their price tags, at least, the FX series is.

Go with the
i5-2500k Microcenter has it cheaper if you have one near you.
Gigabyte Z68 UD3 mobo


Also, depending on when you plan on getting it, you may want to wait on Nvidia's release of their next lineup of cards.

Thanks!

I was planning on getting it asap. And wont the prices of the new cards be pretty high?

And also, I dont have a microcenter near me so the i5-2500k would be $30 more.
