Hi I am looking into buying a rendering/gaming computer around christmas time and I am trying to figure out the best parts for under 1200. Any advice would be great. Under 1k would be best but 1200 is fine. I play LoL, starcraft, assassins creed 3 and maybe bf3. I will be using sony vegas for rendering. Also will probably be doing some hd livestreaming of games with my cap card.

Here is what I've been looking at:

- Intel core i7 3770k or 3820
- EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Superclocked
- 16gb ram (idk which brand)
- Motherboard ??? (Possible overclocking)
- Power Supply??
- Antec Nine Hundred Two V3 Gaming Case

That processors is needed for livestreaming though. I dont know if I need 16gb of ram Might go to 8 and as for the video card I might downgrade to the 660 superclocked.
