Hey everyone, I once posted a topic here and got some advice on a computer which I was going to build... I lost interest, but have now started again. Here are the parts currently on my list. Any changes/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Cooler - Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory EDIT- 16GB Not Needed... I'll go down to 8GB
Storage - Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Case - Cooler Master Storm Enforcer ATX Mid Tower Case
PSU - Corsair Enthusiast 750W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply
Optical - Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer

As you can see I am missing the following -
A Video Card
A Solid State Drive
A Sound Card
And a Monitor

I have a budget set for around $1200 and am looking to play Max. Quality video games (e.g. Skyrim, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 etc.)
If you think I should change any parts to fit in with my aims, or if you think there are parts which beat my current listed parts in
value to power, please post. I don't mind a little criticism :kaola: 

Oh, and by the way, If there happen to be any keyboards and mice wich are good for gaming that I should get with this build (preferably with Green blacklighting) please suggest them!

Thanks in advance
Wolfear
