Hello, I need opinions and suggestions on this PC that I put together. I have a 850$ budget and would like to know if I need to change stuff.

Here's the build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/iwTX :sweat:  :sweat:

get a z77 board instead of z68 because you need a sandy bridge to update a z68 to support ivy bridge but z77 boards already support ivy bridge

Bad board choice. Get the ASRock Extreme 4 Z77.
Do not get the 560 Ti 448. The 7870 beats it by a good margin and is cheaper.
Spend a few bucks more and get 1600 RAM.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ix6w how is this? I can't afford a Z77 Extreme 4. Would go over the budget, unfortunately i'm quite tight on the 850$ :(  Also would it matter if this case doesn't have front headers for 3.0 USB even though the board does?

What's that difference between a GHz edition and a normal one?

The GHz edition is pre-overclocked.

Would it be better to get one of those or just a normal graphics card?

Normal is better. You're spending more for a minor performance difference. And you can overclock it yourself.

Why are you getting the 7850? The 7870 is the same price, and performs better. The Challenger is OK, but there are better cases. Try the Bitfenix Shinobi. I have it, and it a great, minimalist case.
