Can anyone Identify any obvious problems with my current proposed build, or how I might improve it? Basically I only want it to run next gen games (Dead Space 3, Planetside 2 ect) at a steady 60 fps on maybe medium settings.

To begin with, you have two different ram kits and both of them are horrendously overpriced. Any 8GB, 1.5v, <$50 ddr3-1600 kit will work for your purposes.

Will this do as suitable RAM? The G.SKILL DDR3 8GB (2 X 4GB) PC-10666/1333 F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL Ram

>>30004492 Any specific keyboard you may recommend anon?

>>30004543 Anything from Ducky, Filco or Das. The Vengeance K60 from Corsair is alright too, but only if you're fine with having some of the keys be non-mechanical.

Version 2 of the current build, I'm not sure if the power supply I'm getting is necessary, being 500W. I've also subbed out the keyboard to make it a bit cheaper

Friend of OP, What about my build? decent? needs fixing? any ways to slim down on cost?

>>30005378 700W power supply for $77?, yea.. seems a bit suspicious

>>30005378 Ditch the 680 for a 7970 and that's almost $200 saved right away for about the same performance after overclocking. >$250 motherboard >$150 RAM? Am I reading this right?

>>30005571 uh huh, when i need more ram for video editing, rendering ect, so when the motherboard only had 4 slots i dont want to just trash my old ram to spend 300 on new stuff, i can just get 2 more sticks for 150?

Thanks for giving me a good laugh at your expense guys, I'll leave you to wallow in your stupidity now.

>>30005591 by the time that 16GB becomes restrictive and difficult to work with, you'll probably already be on your next computer and when you actually need 32GB ram, we'll be on windows 10 already

No need to buy Windows 7....and get the 7970
