I want to use this computer for gaming and graphic design down, maybe some low end 3D animation. But I'd really like help. I'm new to the computer building thing so any input would be great! http://pcpartpicker.com/user/avu106/saved/zPm323
Upgrade the graphics card
Do you really need that sound card?

Oops,didn't mean to have 2 hard drives...
Sound card is insane when your mobo provides you with integrated sound that you probably couldn't tell the difference. I'm sure it provides 192kHz bitrate or close to it.
(EDIT:)if you're only gaming you only need at most i5 and 8gb of 1600MHz or 1866MHz ram
