Hello, I'm new to building a computer, and could use some help.  I'm trying to build a computer for moderate gaming (budget of approximately $1000), and I believe I have all the parts picked out.  I don't plan on over clocking, and these are all the things I will need (I have a mouse, monitor, etc.).  I just want to make sure all my parts will work together, and if anyone has any final criticism and advice on my build/parts that would be a lot of help!

I would replace your video card with this.

Solid build.  I would go 2X4gig vs 1X8gig for memory.

I didn't notice the savings on that card.  From what I've researched it seems the 7870 can add about 10 fps to games like BF3 and Skyrim, which seems fair for the extra $30.  Thanks for pointing it out :)
 

 

Solid build.  I would go 2X4gig vs 1X8gig for memory.

Wouldn't the one stick give me more leeway in the future if I wanted more memory?  Is there an advantage to having 2X4gig?

Anyways thanks all, I really appreciate the help!

2 channel memory controller.  Your call, but either way you would be wise to have a matched pair of RAM for stability / compatability.

Another reason is having 2 matching ram sticks will make the build look awesome :D

okay I'll switch to 2x4Gb ( http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=40739&CatId=4534 ) thanks for the advice!

 Also some of my order at newegg was voided (for reasons even they didn't know :/) So I was wondering if this i5-3570 is the same processor: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2983973&CatId=1969   

It doesn't have "Ivy Bridge" in it's name and I was wondering what the difference is (if any) from my original processor. ( http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115233)

Yep, they are both exactly the same :)
