Ok, I think I did some decent homework on this since I haven't built a system in over 6 yrs.

I'd like the opinions on this build, if you would be so kind!

MOBO: ASRock Z77 Pro4 m Micro AtX (LGA1155)

CPU: Intel Core i3-3220

Memory: 2x4GB Crucial DDR3-1866 MHz

Power Supply: Cooler Master RS620-SPM 2E3-US

GPU: ASUS Geforce GTX 650 Ti

HDD: Western Digital WD1002 FAEX

Case: Fractal Design "Define R4" (Black Pearl)

I wanted to bring it home for under $800 and did so @ ~750. I'm going to install Windows 7 Ultimate as well. I was shooting for a decent mid level gaming rig with some good multitasking capabilities for work. This looks like it will do the job. Any recommendations would be most welcome!

You could do whatever you need to do with this rig.

First of all thanks for the quick reply, cball. And I must say that's some pretty clever price shifting. Keeping the dollars within 5% of my goal and really beefing up the CPU and GPU! Nicely done! You're hired!
