But for gaming definitely get yourself an i5 not an i7. GTX670 is a marked improvement over the GTX570 as well. The 550W PSU is more than sufficient for that rig, the ASRock motherboard is very solid, the slim line Samsung memory is some of the best around, Antec Kuhler 620 is a good little unit and the Corsair case is pretty good as well from what I have heard. The case also comes in black if you don't like the white. I just personally like the white hence listing it thumb.gif

I didn't put in a storage hard drive because you didn't list one in OP so I'm assuming you are just going to reuse a current hard drive for storage?

Get something like these. They aren't much more and offer better reliability.

And you could look at a better cooler like a hyper 212 + or evo for around the same price. Just check that your case would fit them.

Yeah so im getting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139025 and the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1.

i was also looking into getting two of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130770. seems like it would be better for less $.

And would an i7 be a good idea if im planning on streaming games that im playing? redface.gif

Personally I would just get a single GTX670

If you wanted to stream games while playing you might see some benefit from an i7 but to be honest, if getting the i7 means you have to get a cheaper GPU, then don't get an i7. The improvement you would see from an i7 vs i5 would be lost and you would actually get worse performance compared to an i5 + better GPU
