More about will build gaming
  1. Only need 8GB of RAM.

    It wont max out the more intensive games (Crysis 2, BF3, Metro 2033, etc), but you will get high-ish settings at a respectable framerate.
  2. 1: reduce to 8gb
    2: add 30 dollars and you get a 7870 from xfx after MIR i think
    3:dont use 5900rpm drives as a boot drive. they will slow you down. id rather get a samsung 830 128gb SSD for now and add another hard drive in the future to get more storage
    4:this is a better power supply. it will supply more power than that corsair 600w
