    Everything is very good with one exception:
    Upgrade power supply to 700W or 750W and get a brand name. That 650W NZXT is barely enough.
    Get a reliable brand name like Corsair, Thermaltake, Cooler Master, Enermax, Antec, XFX, Seasonic, OCZ, or Silverstone.
    Make sure it’s an 80 plus certified power supply (80 plus means guaranteed over 80% of rated power in actual output)
    It is also preferable to get a modular power supply, to eliminate cable clutter and allow for better air flow in your box.
    NEVER CHEAP OUT ON YOUR POWER SUPPLY, it’s the engine that drives your entire computer.

    Good as is………

    Case: is great, with a cool exterior bonus.
    Processor: has a good core-speed, its overclockable.
    CPU cooler: allows you to overclock without destroying the CPU as much.
    Memory: You should change that to 8 gb of ram, you can save some money, since you would’nt use 16 GBs unless your doing some serious multitasking.
    Video card is great.
    The motherboard uses a 2011 CPU socket, the new ones are going to be 1150, so if your planing on upgrading, this might limit your choices.
    PSU, to be honest, if i can go 430 watts on my Radeon 7950, i think you would only need 660watts.
    you should grab an SSD along with you hard drive, for faster boot times.
    To be honest, in my personal preference, if your choosing windows 7 over windows 8 because of the start menu alone, its not reasonable. Windows 8 has alot faster boot times, and takes up less space. But if windows 7 came with the office pack, but windows 8 doesn’t, then sure go for windows 7.
    Better wiring is always a good thing to have in a prebuilt system, for later upgrades.
    Overall, only thing you should change:
    Use 8gb ram instead of 16 to save some money.
    add an SSD with windows 8 for faster boot times, but thats just a preference.
    This computer should last for about 5 years of high graphics gaming. after that, it can easily be upgradable. This is a great custom computer.

    It is excellent, but an imperfect as a gaming pc.
    The i7-3820 is Sandy Bridge-E, where they added the 1600 MHz memory controller to a Sandy Bridge technology CPU. That was followed by Ivy Bridge, and now Haswell. You are working a few levels back in technology with that CPU. The gaming performance is inferior to the i5-3570K, which is not inferior to the i5-4670K. The hyperthreading of i7’s is only useful in recording gaming – not the game play itself. If in video editing, it is also good. It is hard to put every CPU on the table, but reference to gaming-only, in overclockable CPUs to keep them on a par,
    i7-4770K should be a few percent better than i5-4670K. The i5-4670K should approximate an i7-3770K, and maybe beat it by a hair. The i5-3570K is next as about 10% below an i5-4670K, and then comes i7-3820. The PCIexpress controller of the i7-3820 is PCIe 2.0 instead of 3.0, and the Sandy Bridge technology vs the Ivy Bridge hits it again. The higher clock and extra cache of the i7-3820 improves it, but both can be overclocked, so the i5-3570K should be the winner, even if not by a lot. The lower power use of the i5 is also nice, and its price is lower. http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-38…
    Your build should be with your choice of i5-3570K or i5-4670K or bump it up to an Ivy Bridge or Haswell i7-3770K to i7-4770K if looking for the hyperthreading to stay and have the extra money.
    The power supply is about adequate, but not the best. The 650W Hale 82N-SI is OK at 53A on 12V.
    Your motherboard with 4PCIe x 16 at 2.0 just goes again as expensive down-level technology.
    The key is 2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x16 (PCIEX16_1, PCIEX16_2)
    The extra 2 slots don’t add as much. The power supply would be changed/upgraded with a second GTX 770 added in SLI, and going with less than top tier on the CPU and downlevel 2.0 PCIe on the motherboard just shows that your high grade intended system, which is truly excellent, falls short of where it could be for the same money, and is not planned correctly to take the second GPU without a power supply change.
    You can also save some money out of the gate by using 2x4GB RAM. Since the graphics card mostly uses its own, and only gets into system ram to share for a couple to 3 GB, how many processes will you have running to justify 16GB. If editing videos frequently, OK. 16GB is nice. You would rather put the money into something else.
    You are also missing a solid state drive.
    I am not sure whether the i7-3820 supports Intel RST./SRT HDD acceleration, but it should. Certainly, the rest of what I show for CPU does (Motherboard changes when you change CPU). They are cheaper in Ivy Bridge and more expensive in Haswell.
    30GB SSD gets Intel HDD acceleration
    Can use SSD for Windows, Internet cache, and as a temporary storage to edit video, and for a favorite game or two. SSD’s have come down in price. Every high grade system should have one.
    So, very very nice, excellent system, but shy of perfect.
    I would play around with the iBuypower site choices if that is the intent to have them build it, or you can build it yourself with pcpartpicker.com and youtube videos for assistance.
    Passmark scores do not apply to gaming.
    As a yardstick, I would say if you went with i5-3570K with a z77 motherboard with dual x16 slots USually takes 3 or 4 slot motherboards, cut the 16GB to 8GB ram, add an SSD, and raise the power supply just a bit, you improve your gaming performance and come out equal or lower net price.
    Bump it up to Haswell and you are more future proof. You might squeeze out a i5-4670K close to even with the other changes. Try it.
