Hi guys i'm building my first computer and i'm wondering if there are any thing i could downgrade or upgrade in my build? I was wanting to build something with great performance that could run games, movies, photoshop, and some other design programs. I'm trying to do it for as cheap as possible but also want the best build i can do! Any help would be appreciated.. Also whats a good amount of power?

Thank you

16 gb of ram is plenty; I also use ripjawsX; it's good ram. This board has free ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (asrock z77 extreme 3 $120 with 2x4 gb free ram kit); I use 8 gb and it's plenty; tried 16 gb and didn't notice any difference except it takes up more space on my ssd. Newegg Promos: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...; the antec high current 750w and corsair tx650 may be better deals than the rosewill. Links aren't working at my end; not unusual for newegg.

1: Raidmax makes horrid cases. Get a different case.
2: Get a 7870 or 7950 over the 660 Ti.
3: Get a 650w PSU instead.
4: 32GB is a a lot of RAM. Get 16GB.
5: Otherwise, great!
