This is my first build, I am just asking for opinions on it. Will it work well? It will be used for things such as gaming, hosting decent servers, running high end programs.
Thank you all. I also would like to know, I read online from other builders/gamers that BF3 is a huge game that requires a decent system for high quality gamplay, will this computer do well with that game? Skyrim? Thank you.

What do you mean by high end programs? For gaming, the i5 is going to better for you. Depends on what you all plan to do with the computer.

With that 670, you can max out any game with ease.

I do feel dumb saying high end programs but I don't know what programs I would be using. I basically just want to make sure that my computer will be able to work well with everything I use on it. Well looking around I just see people talking about how they can use "Said Program" perfectly on their new computer. The question is hard to answer because I can't be very specific on what I am asking. For gaming though I understand that and thank you for the info. I just want to make sure I have minimal limits to what I can do on my computer.
Thank you for the reply!

Are you talking high end programs like Adobe CS5/6 or Autodesk Architectural Desktop? Or are you talking doing some heavy duty photo / video editing? If you're doing any of those then the i7-3770K will come in handy. For everything else it's the i5-3570K.
