Cut back on your ram and powersupply. If you're gaming 8 gb is fine and for a single graphics card 1200 watts is way too much. Get 650 to be safe.
Upgrade your graphics card to a 7970 or 7950. Again, if you want to play games then and i7 is supposed to be too much, get an i5 3570. Get the K edition of it if you want to do overclocking.
Read the reviews of everything before you buy. I skipped the reviews of my powersupply, a corsair hx650 and got stuck with a psu that is defective in design. Makes whistling noises. The replacement had the same problem and now I'm waiting for the 2nd RMA.
I'm using this setup mainly for making music on FL STUDIO. So will all these parts work together tho? I'm just worried they wont fit in the motherboard or case. Also could i install a soundcard later on when i have more money? And would that be easy to install a SOUND card later on? So 650 watts is enough for this system? I'm gonna upgrade my graphics card to 7950 prob so the setup isnt bottledneck!
I'm gonna buy windows 7 and a monitor and keyboard. i already have a mouse. Would this setup be compatible tho? Like will everything fit into the ANTEC eleven hundred case and plug into the motherboard along with the extra 120mm fan i want to put?
