computer is mostly going to be used for gaming/live streaming/recording games. goal is to do that in 720p with no lag.

see flaws such as things not fitting/working together/compatibility/not good enough watts/cooling being insufficient?

or do u know of any better parts then the ones i have now (within reason)?

budget is 1500-2000$ btw. and hoping to go $1500ish so i wont have to wait 1-2 weeks. but if its a good bang for my buck then go for it~ ^_^

nn mouse/keyboard/sound card/monitor

thx

You really could scratch the black edition WD HDD and just get a Seagate Barracuda. No difference in performance only a name. PSU will be fine only if you plan not to SLI later on, then up that to a 750W.

Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ NCIX US)

I have that exact model of the Barracuda and have had it for over 3 years. Haven't had a bit of problems. Its really just a luck of the draw deal as it goes with all pc components. You win most of the time and you lose a few times.
