Shuttle SZ77R5
Intel i7 3770k Ivy Bridge
Intel 160 SSD X25-M
WD 1TB Drive
LG Bluray/HD-DVD(yes I know its an obsolete format, but I chose this because we have some of these disks left because they are cheaper then DVD and better quality)
Intel Mini PCI Express Wifi/Bluetooth Combo and Antenna
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHZ
Diamond TVW750USB ATI Theater HD 750 TV Tuner with Digital TV Antenna
Rosewill USB 3.0 Internal Card Reader

I think you have a great pc, BUT. It is complete over kill. 16gb DDr3 won't be needed for years to come, and when it is needed, DDR4, or even 5 will be out, and then you won't want DDR3 anymore. i7 is a good choice. I didn't see your PSU anywhere? Other then that, nice computer. No no, AMAZING computer.

Well whom ever told you that, just said it so you spend more money on ram, that is not needed at all. But you won't need to upgrade for years to come tho
That PSU... I see problems down the road. 500W is bad for such a computer. You would need at least 600, 650 to be safe. But I'm jealous, such n awesome computer, Good luck.

Hi niceties55

Windows 7 64bit would be better for gaming and I use CS5 in 7

So then, did you still use 16gb of ram? And I'm very happy you like your computer. Wish best of luck it stays that way

Yep I still did, because I ordered it a while ago(got it all as cheap as I can get) so too late to return (but still 70 for 16gig isn't bad) and running some sweet stuff on it and it's doing well
