I honestly think its perfect but i'd be able to negotiate, I don't live by a microcenter sadly.
I want to overclock and run games like skyrim with lots of mods at max.

Some insight on my choices.. was looking at the msi z77-gd55 but I saw this gigabyte one being able to oc higher and overall a better mobo.
cheap 1.35v DDR3-1600 ram, where can u go wrong xD especially when its 30$ worth of ram since i get the 14$ discount with my 7970.
was looking at the antec on sale.. but i really want a modular one so I went with this one
i was looking at an ips monitor like a http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vs239hp
, but I saw http://pcpartpicker.com/part/benq-monitor-gw2450
looked cheaper and overall better xD
mouse and keyboard looked good for my hands with cherry brown switches :]
also was trying to make it cheaper so i was thinking downgrading to a g400 there like the same as the g500 and downgrading to a 7950 since its just 1 monitor.. like a http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-v ... d-1003522l
