  1. You chose laptop RAM, which won't work, so go ahead and take that out.

    Here is RAM that will work. G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL $45.99

    That's not an optical drive you chose either, so you can take that out as well. Here ya go for that. ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM $19.99

    You also forgot a PSU (Power Supply). A good one that will be plenty for your system. SILVERSTONE Strider Essential series ST60F-ES 600W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply $69.99

    The total for what I added, minus the RAM and drive bay thing that you chose is $717.91

    Now, you can go with a MUCH better GPU. Take out that 7750 and this is what I would recommend. ASUS ENGTX560 DCII OC/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card $189.99

    So, that's the 2500K, the DZ77SL-50K mobo, the G.Skill RAM, the GTX 560, the Silverstone PSU, the WD Caviar Blue HDD, the Asus DVD burner, and the Apevia case.

    That's a much more balanced build with a total of $793.99.

    Edit: Look at my post below for the full build in a tidy list.

  3. i would say forget the blue drive there to slow for gaming, perfect for storage.
    get a spinpoint f3 or if you must be a fanboi get a WD 7200rpm drive.
    doing so will minimise texture pop in games. not doingso will mean you will have constant texture pop and very slow load times.
    also as your on a budget and not overclocking get an H series board. or spend the little extra and get a 2500k and keep the board yopu have already selected...
    the i5/2500k is only $219 at newegg. also as your well under 850 consider betting a much better gfx card. the extra 70 or so that takes you up to 850bux will put you in a different league.
