$1200 Intel Gaming Rig. Thoughts?

I configured a system over at pcpartpicker.

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/sms831/saved/2gPe

I am a developer, video editor(after effects, premiere), and gamer(bf3, crysis,...).

I was hoping that as soon as I built it I could later upgrade different parts of the system as necessary. (ram, hdd to ssd,...)

I would like to keep the cost for the system around $1000, so that I have room to buy a monitor.

Any suggestions for changes?

Thanks for the help,

-Stephen

  1. Your power supply is only 450 Watts? To me that sounds like your system will not have enough juice for the type of hardware you are putting into it. And also maybe go for at GTX 760. It is only $20 more and from reviews and benchmarks it has a little bit more kick behind it.

    750 Watts is where most people will sit comfortable, but I believe you can get away with 600 or 650 Watts. Look at the Corsair HX750 and the TX650 V2.
