That's a pretty good build, but I would have chosen a bit better video card. iBuyPower's are pretty well priced. If you don't want to buy individual parts and build it, I would recommend an iBuyPower.

Thank you for the reply! The video card showed much higher potential with running high end games, than some more expensive models: on the websites built in meter. Also the warranty on a pre built system is worth more to me than the amount I save on ordering parts from newegg.

im assuming this is for gaming. that being said, that's a bad combo of cpu and gpu.

going for a socket 2011 chip is a waste of money for gaming, and you are getting by far the weakest of the chips available for the socket. you would be much better off by going for a 1155 socket, with a 3570k (giving you an option to overclock). also 16gig of ram is overkill for gaming, 8gig will do you fine. with those savings, you could step up to a better gpu, something like a 7950 w/boost. this would give you a much better gaming experience.

if you're not overclocking, you could get a 3470 and save a few more bucks at that.
