Hello, I''m deciding to build a new computer for around $1500, I just needed some advice. First off I understand the i5 is more for gaming but I really want an i7 3770K so that's the part I am definitely buying because I amusing it for video editing also. The brand I MAINLY prefer is Corsair, I am a Corsair fanatic. So anyways I mainly shop at Micro Center because of the such cheap prices on CPU's. My monitor resolution is 1680x1050, I play Garry's Mod, Counter Strike, GTA IV, ARMA II, Crysis 3, Saints Row The Third, Bioshock Infinite, Battlefield 3, etc. I want to max everything/anything I play. Here's what I'm looking at:

Intel Core i7 3770K LGA 1155 Processor- $229.99

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7,200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 3.5 Hard Drive- $84.99

Corsair Vengeance Series 16GB DDR3-1600 (4 x 4GB.)- $109.99 ( I prefer filling all ram slots.)

Diamond AMD Radeon HD 7970 White Box Version 3072MB- $379.99

Corsair CX Series CX750M Watt ATX Modular Power Supply- $99.99

Corsair Carbide Series 400R Mid Tower ATX Gaming Computer Tower- $99.99

ASUS 24x Internal DVDRW SATA Writer- $29.99

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard- $129.99

Crucial m4 CT064M4SSD1 64GB SATA 6.0Gb/s SSD- $79.99
