Ordering this in a little while here and was just curious if I could do any better for a similar price. Please comment and critique.

Do you really need that much RAM? What do you plan on doing with your computer? You could take that $150 and get maybe an SSD instead.

I probably don't need that much but I just like to go big.
I'm gonna be gaming on it mostly and I'm just looking for really good power and performance. I've got a 24 inch 1080p monitor and I'd love to be running stuff like ArmA 2, Metro, Crysis, etc at max specs.

Get rid off 16GB of RAM and get a 780 with that money.

Yeah, just remove one pair. 16GB is still a massive overkill, and if you need 32GB in the future, you can add that later. You can even get some of the best of the GTX 780 (Lightning, Classified) with that money.

- Remove 16GB of RAM.
- May want to spend the money on a GTX 780 but still could stick with 770
- Get a better power supply possibly 750+ watt and high amps on the 12V rail
- Get a CPU water cooler
- Get an extra SSD for your OS (not necessary but a great luxury)

Thanks for the advice guys. I removed the extra 16gb. I wasn't looking to spend a lot more than a grand but I can go as high as $1200. And I'm still new to this too, I know the basics but this is the first computer I'm going to be building myself. I have trouble picking out the parts from their list, if somebody would be so cool as to edit the build on that site and then link me I would be very grateful.

Your build is fine. Just remove the extra 16 GB of RAM. 770 is great for the price range. Thing is you got an overclocking CPU and Mobo so you have the option for that in the future. Will just need a CPU cooler.

I'm going to be honest with you. Going from 32gb to 8gb of memroy will probably have 0 effect on your PC. The switch to the 780 will actually be good. Also I have no clue why someone above mentioned a 750w psu. Are you buying two video cards? If not, 600w is more than plenty.
