i have upgraded a pre-built system before but never crafted one from scratch, so i'm pretty new at some things. this is a build i've come up with and i'd like any advice you might want to give. i am kinda partial to nvida just because I've always used them and know that they are very reliable, i also love being able to use the control center since some games don't give you all the options it allows for.

so this is what im looking at so far. as far as the i7 goes, i know a lot of people go for the i5, but i'd like to be able to listen to music or let a video buffer in the background while i'm running games. i thought it would be better in that case to upgrade but let me know if you think different. i also like to mess around in things like the creation kit(besthesda/skyrim) and others like it.
again this is what i'm looking into getting but before i went out and spent the money i'd like some advice on anything i could do better or more cost effectively. thanks in advance.

>> similar corsair 750 silver/gold will be very wise choice
people will suggest you to put 3570K instead because it performs similar in GAME only, in other software there is a big gap from 3770k
>> if you have money, 3770K is a great investment people just wanted to cheap out
GTX 660 Ti is great but the sweet spot for nvidia lays on gtx 670. gtx 660 is limited by 192 bit bus
