My budget for the new computer is: 1000-1300 canadian dollars

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? gaming, watching streams, surfing

What software do you intend on using on the computer? the basics, music players, games etc..

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? all types ranging from WoW to dayz to far cry 3

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? i usually close programs when im done with them

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? YES!!

My link

basically this is what im looking at, it has to be ordered from NCIX.ca because i dont know how to build my own computer. im open to suggestions on things and any tips and what not. basically not really looking to do any o/c (i dont know how) and probablyy not gonna do SLI. probably will be ordering sometime this week to take advantage of deals and things. also note, not willing to put ANY MSI products in my build, i think theyre garbage and im not toooooooo keen on the EVGA graphics card, currently running a EVGA 570 and have had problems with it freezing (had to send it back once within 3 months and still creating problems) however it seems to be one of the more popular ones. thanks for any help!

Looks good but you can save some money by cutting down the power supply to a 600W which should be enough as 750W is a overkill. Also get the non-k 3570 since your not overclocking and for around the exact price range, you can get a 7970 which is a lot faster then the 670.

Agreed. Drop the -K if you aren't overclocking.

IMO, the 670 is better than the 7970 for this particular user. The 7970 is great for overclocking, but no so much for a run-of-the-mill enthusiast system. Several benchmarks show the 670 actually running 5-10% faster on most games at factory speeds.

Not exactly, with the new 12.11 drivers the 7970 basically performs a lot better.
