Ordered all of this. I already have a monitor, but if you want to recommend one for around $100 in the comments feel free. I will be using this to render YouTube videos, Play Bo2, LoL, and more including AC3. Also, to Live-stream Bo2 both on Xbox and PC. I will also be recording minecraft, which shouldn't be a problem. Comments/Thoughts? I believe its all compatible, As I did it on PC Partpicker

This is a good computer build but I would recommend getting a better graphics card if your willing to spend a few extra dollars. Also a great website to check if all of your pieces fit is http://pcpartpicker.com It can tell you the approximate wattage and if all your pieces will fit into your case and on your mobo

Like the GTX 560ti 189.99 base and 169.99 with a rebate, and a free duke nukem coupon (if you care about that)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Or the Radeon HD 7850 at the same 189.99 base price with 174.99 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Both good graphics card upgrades to your 650ti

(Oh and this Is my 800$ PC build, for gaming http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rq5U)

Good Luck

Scale back to an i5-3570k or FX-8350 since you are mostly gaming.

Spend the extra $ on Radeon hd 7870 or 7950.

with an I5 2500K or an I5-3570K Like previously mentioned

Im thinking about Going to an i5. But I might just keep the i7 and save up for a better GFX card/the same thing and crossfire maybe? I did do this on pcpartpicker btw.

I am currently building a PC for gaming and video making, and as I admit the I7 is better for rendering and editing videos, The GPU or graphics card is one of the most important pieces in a gaming PC. You never want to buy last years tec like the 650ti

You really want to go with a more modern GPU so that you wont be replacing yours in the feature. Like I said the 560ti and the gtx 660 are 2 really good graphics cards for their price.

What you could do is get the 650ti and when the time comes to get a new graphics card you can get another 650ti (and or better card) and SLI link them for more performance.

Still with the GTX 650TI you should be able to run most games at 1080p with pretty good frames on high or ultra
Make sure you look at benchmarks before you purchase. Those can give an accurate representation if your graphics card is worth the money

I hope I helped!

I dont know about you but how can you not get an I5 after this DEAL!!! http://www.microcenter.com/product/388577/Core_i5_3570K...

Thats crazy!!!
