Default Hey Guys

After you all convinced me to build my own computer, I have been doing research on which parts I think I should buy. Keep in mind while you view this list, I want to be able to play games while live streaming on twitch tv, and I want it to multi-task well. Does this build look good for my needs?

Yes looks good alright, Intel Core i5 3.2GHz Quad-Core, Asus P8B75 Motherboard, 16GB of RAM.

Sounds/looks like y'll be sorted, you may want a 700+ watt power supply.

With playing games and watching T.V at the same time, the Gigabyte GeForce GT 640 2GB should be more then enough.

Oh, my bad.

You should not have an issue there if the Internet (WIFI, LAN) connection is fast.

I would go with 8GB of DDR3 1600 for greater memory bandwidth. Unless you're playing games while running hypervisors or running a RAMdisk, 16GB is total overkill.

Yes, I know I have 16GB of RAM and I'm advising you against it. I see the irony.

Also, lose the network card. The motherboard has a built in ethernet controller.
