    Stay on windows 7. dont bother upgrading unless ur going from 32bit to 64bit. but dont go with windows 8, its barely compatible with anything. KMs being 1 of those not compatible.
    Other than that, if u built it yourself it would be cheaper,

    However no years warranty when building yourself, just each items warranty.

    So everything is good with this system? I don't have to upgrade within 2-3 years?

    as for your hard drive is it the 7200RPM one and is it the only hard drive? If it is you should go with caviar black as it is faster, but you can check out what is the pros of cons of it. If you got with caviar green go with the newer better one.

    Switch the processor to i5-3570K. If possible get an SSD to put your OS or commonly played games on it for fast read times. Don't get anything below 64GB though, since SSD performance is dependant on how much stuff is stored on it. Might wanna get a 600+W PSU since the specs are power hungry, 650W+ will be more than enough for a few years or so.

    Or, from what I noticed you seem to have a 1k USD budget so....

    Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.80 GHz)
    board: ASRock P67 PRO3 (B3) Intel P67 LGA 1155
    (alternatives: ASRock Z77 PRO4, MSI Z77A-G45, ASRock Z77 EXTREME4, MSI Z77A-GD-55,Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H, )
    RAM: CORSAIR 8192MB Dominator DHX Pro Connector DDR3 1600MHz CL9 KIT CMP8GX3M2A1600C9
    GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD7870 2GB (1119-16-20G)
    HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500GB (WD500AAKX)
    box: Zalman Z9
    PSU: Silentium PC DEUS G1 600W
    dvd: Asus DRW-24B5ST

    I think its abit over 1k USD maybe?
    above doesnt include SSD, but you can do without it.

    Lol, overclocking by itself can never make a CPU blow up. Even if you don't OC, the 3570K is much more superior than the 3330 anyways.

    There's pretty much no reason to get any other i5 processor other than the 3570k since it's much more better for its cost than others, unless let's say you're getting a heavy discount on a 2500K. Even then you should be getting 3570k since its significantly better cuz of Ivy bridge.

    You should research on your power supplies, because if you cheap out on your power supply it will be a painful experience so first I concur with lycan's recommendations except for the power supply. Google a wattage calculator and see how much it is going to take and you should at least look at seasonic or corsair for power supply, but there are always reviews on power supplies and should not cheap out on it. =) As for CPU blowing up today in the new age CPUs do not blow up they overheat. If you have insufficient amount of cooling then it will overheat and your computer will auto shut off to avoid damage at a certain temperature but will cause damage to the cpu and shorten it's lifespan. Since you are not overclocking then you do not have to worry about getting an aftermarket cooler.

    If you want a higher end computer check out my thread I posted on my build, but that is if you want too. Search for Computers.

    either way your current spec is fine for most things, however if you wish to record, use voice chat e.g skype and play games, you will need to NOT play on ultra settings, maybe normal at the highest. If your running at 1080p altho 720p recording is probly the most effective as most people cant tell the difference between 720p and 1080p, as they dont have 57"+ monitors the i3570k will boost that FPS a little and it will be able to handle all u can throw at it. GPU is pretty strong too, however theres a huge different between the 660 and the 670.
