Looks good, I would have cut RAM down to 8GB, and the PSU could be better but will work fine. The only other caveat is that it seems a bit spendy for what you're getting, is that price in USD?

The less expensive the better. i think i will cut it down to 8GB i don't think I need 16GB at the moment. Any advice on the PSU? I'm going to be purchasing an GTX 580, 7970, or GTX 680. Yes it is in USD. I will take any advice to make it a bit cheaper. I live in CA so the tax added $100+

Ouch, that explains the price.

If you're going for a single card, then I'd go with a Corsair TX750 or TX650 power supply, I think newegg has the TX750 for around $90 which is a hell of a deal. I've got two of these and have had zero problems, and i bought them back when they were $130/ea.

In regards to the RAM, you'll never miss it. In all actuality you could probably do 4GB and never notice, but given RAM prices 8GB is a good future proof number for now.

I added the TX750 to my cart. My friend agrees I should purchase that one

I don't think your link worked, if I just hit add to cart it comes out around $1500. Also, that website hurts my brain.

I'm sorry lol. Yes it comes up to about $1,500. I don't understand how with the PSU, GPU, CPU..etc included.

It's doable, I built my i7 2600K machine for $1500 this past June. My build is in my profile if you want to check it out. Just hit more info under my name, then member configuration.

The X58/LGA 1366 based stuff that build uses has come down in price a lot since LGA 2011 has arrived. It's still impressive though.
