Here we go again guys :)

I will love you guys forever to lend a hand and let me know if there is anything I could change in order to gain a more positive gaming experience or to even save a buck!

In saying so, this computer is built mainly for streaming movies to a 50" TV and gaming on my 23" monitor.

What do you guys think??

Looks good. If you can try go for a 770/970 (the latter is better) instead of a 760 - that will become dated on modern games sooner than you might expect. 2x4GB of RAM is also better than 1x8GB - dual channel RAM provides better performance. The rest looks fine to me. Good luck!

Thanks Lachlantula!

Unfortunately I don't think I can go with the extra hundred on the Video Card! I'll think about it though!

I was kind of worried my Corsair 600W wouldn't give enough juice for this build, should be enough right?
