    cpu you can get here and save:
    http://www.microcenter.com/product/400271/Xeon_E3_1230V2_33GHz_LGA_1155_Boxed_Processor


    -the xeon is really unecessary. hes gaming
    -there is way cheaper ram out there
    -the corsair 200R is a better case than the merc alpha by any standard
    -the 660ti is 30 bucks cheaper. id select that over a 7950. if they were the same price, then id consider a 7950
    -the corsair 600w is rather low quality vs the xfx 550w
