    Custom PC help.

    I was thinking of building my own PC because the one I have now is pretty shit..
    These are what I plan to buy..

    Intel core i7 Processor: $320

    ASUS P8P67-M PRO Motherboard B3: $140

    12GB 1333MHz DDR3 12GB NON-ECC CL9 DIMM: $87

    Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB HD103SJ: $70

    Gainward GeForce GTX 570 1280MB Dual Fan: $350

    Antec LanBoy Air Red: $215

    OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular: $99

    Lite-On IHAS524 24x DVDRW Super AllWrite: $40

    Bitspower UV Reactive Cable Sleeve Kit Blue: $6.50

    ASUS Xonar DG: $40

    = $1367.5

    Is it worth it? I heard @Alen and @Doc are good with this kind of question ..
    btw I want it to be a gaming PC.. Main thing I'm not sure about is the Graphics card

    GFX sounds aight to me, although it may be worth it going up to a 580 depending on how much they are where you live. All round thats a pretty good build and not too different to anything I would get. And that PSU is a sexy beast

    Nah 580's cost around $550.. If I had the money then ofc..

    Is the PSU really that important, what's the difference if I get a cheaper one?

    Not much difference, but you should try and go for a modular PSU.

    The cheapest 580 is 450.
    I have the Gigabyte GTX 580UD for $520.
    Since when was 12GB RAM $87?

    You should get the intel i5 2500k. There isn't much difference between the intel i5 2500k and intel i7 2600k. If you want a gaming PC, get the 2500k. Imo, it's not worth the extra $100. You can use that extra $100 on the getting the GTX 580. There are GTX 580 for around $450.

    Fine
    RAM's crappy, which CPU, mobo ain't the best, I'd prefer a raid setup or a SSD, the case is just a flashy Antec, not that good tbh, no need for an extra audio card unless you're an audiophile or in need of an integrated amp.
