This is my build. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NqAu

I know many recommend the cheaper amd cpu and gpu, but i want intel :P Mostly i just want to make sure I'm not making any major mistakes, unsure if i need a better motherboard. Also don't know much about power supplies.

Thanks for taking the time. For everything included i would like to keep it under about $2500, but I'm flexible with that. I just want to get something ill be totally happy with. Seems a lot of people are recommending the radeon cards, and most also recommend an i5 instead of i7... but i can't seem to make myself do it. As for SSD, you feel that its not worth it to get the pro series? And i was also wondering why you switched the motherboard, since its similar price. Thanks again for your time.

So this is it: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/NqIH

I will soon hopefully be making the switch from console to pc in the Summer but i'm very new to this and I'm not quite sure if this is a good build. Any feedback greatly appreciated. If anyone can recommend something that is better for the price and performance that would be great.

I have a really nice one under $2500. Here it is: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NH51. I went with the i7 because you want it. Don't worry about the psu, it's a tier 1 on this list: http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/1/323050/ShowThread.aspx It's upgradeable if you want to put in another 680. The psu is also very efficient, it's 80+ platinum efficiency.

Here's mine: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Dead-Xilence/saved/1pgb Dual 7970s, a 3770K, nice case, 16GB 2133 RAM. This is without monitors, keyboards, and mice.

Oh i always saw people get intel cpu and gtx gpu. or amd and radeon. Didn't know it was fine to have one of each. I read that for ram the 2133 doesn't really help that much and mostly just makes it run hotter. How has it been for you so far?

Don't go with 16GB RAM. Get 3x4GB Sticks at most of Crucial Ballistix 1866. Also, look for the $600 EVGA 4GB 680 or go with a 7970.
