First time PC buyer last month and I'm happy with my setup for $800 total

I5 3570k + after marker fan
Gtx 660 ti
8gb ram
1 tb HD

Plays Nba 2k13 at a smooth 55fps on 46" 1080p plasma!!!
I just use that evga precision x, turn frame rate target to 75. I guess that's GPU oc.
Before I did that it was choppy.

Why's that? I built a PC back in '06 and owned TES4 for both the 360 and PC.

The advantage of having a spec'd out PC really just came down to the modding scene more so than the graphics.

How about graphics, performance, modding scene, and not being locked into your hardware for the lifespan of the generation?

The modding scene has nothing to do with anything unless you are trying to run an ENB (which is a k!ller because it is sooooo demanding)....Modding generally has to do with Vram which in turn depends on the resolution you are playing at.

The difference between Ultra and high settings is very minimal, yet the impact can k!lls frames for sh*t you don't even notice. AA is the frame k!ller, and honestly, unless you are sitting so close to your Monitor or TV you wouldn't even be able to tell the difference. Mods = increased vram use, if you are lacking in that area it can k!ll frames....ENB's k!lls frames...AA k!lls frames....

Having a powerful processor is another myth..You don't need a i7....Get you a i5..the only game in which a i7 benefits is crysis 3 and for minimal gain......Hell, even go even cheaper and get you a AMD FX line quad core cpu and you'll be fine.....In the end it all depends on what your preference is.....But you don't need to spend a stack to get 60 frames and a good looking experience..

Graphics advantage is marginal (30-50% FPS increase at best for a 90-100% price increase)
Gameply experience is largely the same (w/o mods)
Modding is as only strong as the community that supports it
Online gaming community is less robust than Xbox Live
Few PC exclusive games that aren't MMO or RTS

I don't know how well it would be for a gaming, but I want to build this PC. A lot of it is overkill, but still looks sweet.

A powerful CPU takes the strain off the GPU for games that have a ton of physics (BF3) for example. I'd expect more games relying on physics going forward. Less static environments and more animations for sure.

You think 50% increase in FPS in marginal?? Step away from the keyboard.

You are misinformed....you will gain 2 fps over i5 with an i7....which is hardly worth the extra 100 bucks for an i5 over the i7....the i5 is still the sweet spot for gaming pc's...and the graphics cards will do the bulk of the heavy lifting....I have a 2500k that never goes over 50% utilization in ANY game I play....you want cost efficiency, ditch the i7...

Marginal when you're paying 100% more.

Price to performance ratio doesn't weigh in favor of PC's at all whatsoever.

Gaming above 60fps barely noticeable if your monitor's or TV's refresh rate can't match it.

Which most HDTV's can't do.
