Plan to buy today.  Please advise if you see anything that needs changing.  I mostly use for internet, small business office stuff, some video, etc.  Have a Dell WFP 2408 24" monitor.  I expect this is over-kill, but I just don't want to buy Brand X or Brand Y and get junk.  Thanks, Jim

Hi cusafr... Build looks great.
 
We always recommend the HafX case but your call.  The 550D will no doubt work well, but a case's most important function is great airflow.  Not everyone wants the HafX.
 
8GB ram is all gaming needs, the rest you'll probablt never use.
 
The psu could be dropped to the 750HX to save money unless you're looking at sli potential in the future.
 
Hope this helps and keep us updated.Big%20Smile

Thanks bprat.  I like the looks of the 550D and the promise of it being quiet.  So we shall see.  I kept the 16GB Memory because it is so cheap right now.  Kept the 1050 over the 750 for the same reason, plus may sli in future.

Just placed order. 

Thanks again,

Jim

Thanks.  I will send some pics for sure.  I appreciate you and others help in making my final decision.  I am excited about getting the 3770K-Z77 and DS Quality build.  Won't be long now....now...now...LOL.
