How does this build look? Also, if you could give me any tips on things I should upgrade or degrade, in terms of performance to price. I'm looking to get the most out of my money, my budget is about 1,200 - 1,400 dollars. Thanks in advance.

either go with i7-3930k (six core) or drop that cpu and buy the i7-3770k with a z77 board.

I'd go with a i7-3770+ z77 extreme 6 asrock+ better gpu 670 gtx or 7970 ghz edition.

Also, on Cyberpowerpc it shows an FPS change of like 1 for an extra 100 to 300 dollars... Why is that worth it?

Hey just a question why are you going with an i7 if your using this for gaming system mostly ? Really an i5 is the best bang for the buck. Also 16gig not needed for gaming 8gigs will work fine and did I miss your PSU I don't see it listed.

I went with an i-7 because the cpu of my current computer is what ALWAYS fails on the can you run it so I was just going to go with a top tier cpu and I want as much RAM as possible. The PSU is 800 watts.

Trying to save a little, get the 670, 3570k, and 8GB RAM.

Not trying so much, get the 7970, 3770k, and 16GB RAM.

You pleased either way, just pleased longer if you go bigger.
