For gaming, I'd go 8GB (maybe Trident 2133 2x4GB), a SeaSonic 650 PSU, Hyper 212 EVO, Samsung 256 840 Pro, !TB or better (depends on needs) 7200 RPM, 64MB cache, for GPU it would depend on how high you want to go, should have plenty, I'd stick with an nVidia GPU, with the budget, might look at the Asus 780

I'm quite new to this pc building type of thing I apologize in advance for my questions.
I am looking to over clock, do I need a better cooling system and PSU?
And what should I over clock it to? Thanks

Also, I'm looking to build a HTPC just for music, movies and browsing the net.
What's the best set up (performance and economically)

http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/1rMAh i just threw some shit in there lmao, i only picked the 800D case because I wasnt sure if you were planning to add more components along the way, and maybe head towards water cooling.

I added the 1000W PSU incase you were planning to go Triple SLI - Quad Sli lmao ~ but if thats not the case you can just drop a 850 PSU in there and that will be fine.

The Hyper 212 EVO is what I have on my 2500K @ 4.8 24/7 and another on my 3570K at 4.7 24/7, so it's plenty good enough, the SeaSonic should also be plenty
