http://pcpartpicker.com/p/kSd1 - PS: I`m adding a 1TB HDD and an i3 2100 that I already have to it!

Also one more Q? I don't wanna spend a penny more on the PSU, so can I safely get a cheaper one that has more watts? If so which one, and will my i3 2100+7870 handle the PSU?

The power supply is the one thing you don't want to cheap out on or you will have stability issues.

The case you chose, that's going to be one really cheap flimsy case.

What's your budget?

My $0.02:

I know it's cool to have the biggest and baddest GPU, BUT your budget is $430. You can't just buy one exceptional part and then cheap out on the rest. Your computer is only going to be as fast/powerful as the weakest component.

That being said, you have one nice part and then a bunch of mediocre parts. I would work on that. Also, you don't *need* 16 gb of ram. That's mostly for dick-measuring. I usually have a game loaded up, skype, vent, maybe 1-2 other programs and I have never even used the full 8 gb of RAM I have on my computer now. Even running windows and linux simultaneous has never warranted more than 8gb of memory for me. I was looking at putting 16gb into my new build as well until multiple IT professionals told me that it was a waste 99 times out of 100 for people.

:p  well I have a 23' touchscreen that this is hooking up too, I`m gonna have a couple of torrents up, maybe 10 tabs of IE with movies in like 3 of the tabs, a few minecraft servers, and usually a game along with skype and background programs like kaspersky. Also I`ll be keeping things like after effects open 24/7. Lol

Also rendering 1080p videos, and saving ones that are about 3 hours long, I record my screen for 3 hours at 1080p for my speedbuilds/codes :D
