I need the rest! I want this all to be close to $1300, I don't need a monitor, mouse, keyboard, or any software, just parts.
What can i downgrade or upgrade but not loose power? Or if you want, post what you would build with $1300.

Thanks!

I'm looking to build a computer that I am able to do heavy gamin on but also be able to render video and store a lot of pictures on, I am going to school for photography and I need something that will be able to keep up with a lot of memory and not slow down. I might be overclocking in the future, but when I first get it I am not going to.

You are aware that for a gaming rig the 3770K and 16GB of RAM won't be of use right? If that's the primary use. I wouldn't purchase that Kingston SSD either.

I'd try something like this:

he also will be rendering videos , and for this overall price i think it's good.
and what's wrong with the hyper X SSD it doesn't have any issues and it is fast as hell.

My primary uses for this computer will he rendering video, uploading high quality photos with lots of memory. Steam games, browser base games such as runescape (I know up don't need a great computer to play), and doing school work on, I like the first computer built, but I would want to change some parts, like the ram, I don't new anything specified towards gaming. I would like to use some more well known brands so I don't cheap out in a sense. I can go a bit over $1300 but nothing above $1500. Also I would prefer to have an i7, the ssd's because you simply can't beat how fast they are, and 16gigs of ram. Thanks for all the help!
