its funny how that always happens.

there is no need to get 16GB of memory for what your listed uses are. 8GB will be plenty and you can always add another 8GB later if you need it.

do you plan on overclocking? if not you could save some money with a 3470 using the stock intel heat sink and a cheaper motherboard.

this is a cheaper psu after MIR.

this 660ti is the same price as the 660 you listed after MIR.

you could also save some money on a cheaper case.
