Building a $1500 - $2000 gaming computer - Seeking assistance

Hello guys,
I'm about to order and start building my very first computer, one that'll support all new release games for a fair while, and also allow me to do digital art. (Wanting to spend around $1500 to $2000). I was hoping too find out whether or not the parts i have chosen are compatible with each other, and or if other parts are recommended instead. Also additional help with choosing the rest of the necessary parts would be much appreciated.

This is the website i'd like to use for the purchase of all my parts if possible.

  1. Since you're getting an overclocking CPU, I imagine you'll overclock at some point, In which case you'll be looking to an aftermarket cooler.

    With that finned RAM, and having 4 sticks, you're limiting yourself on what coolers will fit.

    Get low profile RAM instead. The fins do little but look cool.
    And get 2 x 8GB instead of 4 x 4GB. If you really, really want 16GB.
  2. okay thank you, ill keep that in mind. Though i don't know if, i really, really want it anyway.

    I think it is better build 4770k + Gigabyte X- D3H or UD3H
    This cpu: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646i74770k
    This mobo: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gaz87xd3h
    Or this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gaz87xud3h
    Or good asus pro: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-z87pro

    Then you just need good memory. 1600MHz Cl9 1.5V
    And CPU cooler maybe like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/noctua-cpu-cooler-nhu12s

    Good PSU Seasonic, XFX Rosewill capstone (SuperFlower) 550w is enough for one video card.
    Good SSD (MLC) 128GB is bit small side so better buy is 256GB. Samsung is fatest and really good reliability too.

    Plextor,SanDisk are maybe cheaper. Not in all countries but here they are :)
    HDD (seagate is good) WD too.
    Case what looks to you and all parts fit in :)
    Like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-caph630m1 (just for example) do not buy this :D
    Video card. Gigabyte and asus makes the best cooler solutions to video cards.
