Tips? I play games mostly like Skyrim, Diablo III, Starcraft II, WoW, Modern Warfare, Call of Duty, ect.. I'm actually looking to replace my PS3 with this. Let me know if any problems or tips. I want to stay under 800$ for the set up which yes includes windows 7. Thanks!!

Are you going to overclock and/or add a 2nd GPU in the future?
You don't need the RAM - Newegg will give you 8GB free with the Extreme4.
