This is my setup on my first custom built computer, sorry if it's hard to understand.
I have several questions about it...

First of all, are there any things that you recommend I change?
Second, will the CoolerMaster V6 fan fit over top of my ram cards, or are they too big?
Third, will the two different sizes of RAM work together as long as they are both 1600?
Fourth, for those who have done it, is CyberPower's enhanced care option worth it?

id say, why can you not build it yourself? its cheaper that way and you dont get messed up component arrangments like in your build

-i7s are not for games
-650tis are not good for games
-with 1000 dollars, you can do better on the case and most other components

First of all, I am not planning on gaming. And even if I was going to, this setup would get over 100fps on MW2 or 80 on StarCraft III.

If you are going to critique my design, can you please give me somewhere where you think I can get a cheaper build. I've tried newegg, amazon, ebay, and six other places but the build is always $150 more once I complete it.

And if I had the choice to build it, I would get the same parts, so what's the use?

Should I downgrade to the normal 650 GT non-Ti?

I am not overclocking, that's why I don't have the 3770k just to save $40.

I am not currently doing sli, and probably not going to until I need to major upgrade my GPU.

Mostly just normal stuff.

I want Google Earth to not lock up. :) 

I want Photoshop not to lag.

I want to load my 500 page book on Word without waiting three minutes.

I want to be able to do video editing.

Maybe some light gaming like Roblox or Minecraft. But I want it to be able to run stuff like MechWarrior Mercenaries

if you dont do more than 3hrs of work, the i7 would be wasted just saying

this is all you need. intergrated graphics is enough for MW3

I would really like G.Skill ram, so I could just buy it off of newegg.

cyberpowerpc.com offers 3 year warranty and the reason I had some of the stuff at such high levels is so that I could keep it through several upgrades, hence the 750 Watt PS

December 4, 2012 10:37:54 PM

all ram is about the same. i buy whatever is cheaper. just i dont buy random brands like geil and wintec

manufacturers offer just as long as for the warranty.

theres no point of a 750w power supply. components only get more power efficient

How much would two 650s use? including everything else?
December 4, 2012 10:46:08 PM

HELP! I can't feel my arms of legs and my head is swimming! after two years of research, I'm overwhelmed by this new site you've showed me.
Really I'm getting light headed...
December 4, 2012 10:48:30 PM

you dont want gtx 650s for your system. terrible value and they wont SLI btw
December 4, 2012 10:48:55 PM

What would you recommend if I wanted to stick to NVidia GeForce?
December 4, 2012 10:49:10 PM

the site shows about every single common component that you can get and the lowest price (generally)

they recently added newegg combo deals into the mix as well
December 4, 2012 10:50:11 PM

there is nothing that i would get from nvidia right now other than a 670. the rest are easily beaten in value by radeon cards.

as i said, intergrated graphics is enough for your usage
December 4, 2012 10:53:08 PM

But I thought radeon didn't work as well with Intel i7?
December 4, 2012 10:54:09 PM

meh. thats a lie
December 4, 2012 10:56:01 PM

So maybe like the 7770?
December 4, 2012 10:58:56 PM

dude, use my build. you dont need a 750w power supply, you dont need a z77 motherboard, and you dont need a CPU cooler since the CPU comes with one

as i said, you dont need a GPU. the onboard is suitable for your usage.
December 4, 2012 11:01:43 PM

Then how come when I research it says that the guys doing Minecraft and recording it need high end GPUs?
December 4, 2012 11:04:04 PM

Your MoBo only has two mem slots...
December 4, 2012 11:11:39 PM

ok ok. what about the ASRock H77M Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard?

You may have convinced me not to get the GPU, but just for reference, when would I have to get to surpass the built in GPU?

Is there a chat where we could discuss instead of posting?
December 4, 2012 11:23:22 PM

yes my mobo only has 2 ram slots, but that is enough for the most part. if you want a motherboard with 4 slots, i can suggest a board

yes there is. there is private messages on this forum. just click that mail icon near the left hand side
December 4, 2012 11:34:03 PM

I sent you the mail, I want 4
