Since it's my first time building my own computer, I hope you guys could tell me whether the part is good or not and if I'm missing anything I need or have something extra (assume i have nothing now except headphones.)
Also, i would like to buy it as soon as i get some productive feedback and make sure my parts are good. My budget is under $2000 total. It is currently $1814. I would use it for a computer major (in high school, still haven't decided yet, maybe programming/data analysis), gaming, video streaming, internet surfing, and other general purposes. I am in CA, USA. I prefer NZXT for the case and Intel CPU, but, other than that, I would like the best part for a decent price, not straying too far from the current price.
Thanks for the info. To be honest, I don't really know yet because high school is really important and I'm mostly focusing on my studies. (I did this in my minimal spare time.) Maybe I'll run Assassin's Creed, Portal, Call of Duty, Final Fantasy, and stuff like that. I would expect good quality, like close to no lag, fast response, a high fps, and a very clear view.
Well since we saved $100 to get rid of the sound and network cards, let's add that to the budget and upgrade your 650 Ti to a Radeon 7870. If you prever Nvidia, the comparable Nvidia is the GTX 660 Ti, but it is a bit more expensive for similar performance.
You may find that the Intel I5-3570K is just as fast for your intended purposes. That would free up another $100 or so and you could jump to a GTX 670 or Radeon 7950, which are up there near the top for graphics performance.
