Additional Comments: Games that would be playing on my pc would include star wars the old republic, skyrim, total war games, tera, world of warcraft and minecraft. Some of those games dont need big comp to play just giving you as much info as i can as to wat i need the comp for. I will need to be able to upload my youtube videos in 1080. Also im really knew at this guys so i if you could try not to get to technical that would be much appreciate. I have to friends that have made there own builds who will be helping me assemble it. If you need more info just let me know.
What im considering for a case: (you can switch out to different size or something similar if parts dont fit just try to pick out something with glass case concept)
If you're comfortable using up all of your $1200 budget then upgrade the GPU to a 7870 or something else more powerful. Alternatively you could add an SSD. I can make a recommendation in both cases if you want.
If you are going to overclock then it would be a good idea to add a CPU cooler. Again I can make a recommendation.
You don't need as high end a motherboard as the P8Z68-V Pro (or an ATX motherboard in general) if you are not going to SLI/CF. I could probably come up with an ATX alternative if you have something against mATX motherboards.
