advice 1200 intel build

Looks good. If you're not gaming isn't that GPU overkill?

+1 to mosox's comment. You could get something less powerful and still do what you listed.
Otherwise, you can easily OC a stock factory GTX 460; if you can save a reasonable amount of money buying a stock card, do it.
Can't find your answer ? Ask !
