some of it is overkill

a 3570k games as well and will handle all your other usages listed easily

you dont need more than 2 x 4 gig of RAM . Games cant use more

what features of Win 7 pro do you plan on using that are not in the Home edition?



but if you want to spend $1400 then you have a successful system that works well

The reason i went with the win 7 pro is because of the Ram limit on the home edition. This is my first pc that i personally will buy and build all my other systems have been hand me downs when my brother upgrades. I have to admit that has a something to do with me wanting a more powerful machine. Kinda like "This is mine and its great". I will be streaming alot and would like to start making youtube videos with the VODS so that is why i went with the 16 gigs or ram. I cant claim this build as my own really I made a post on Reddit /buildapc and a X post on /buildapcforme and bounced ideas off of a few people who were kind enough to help me. I just wanted more people to see it and get more input before i pulled the trigger on buying everything.
