  1. Great choice on HDD, GPU, and SSD.

    For the processor, get the i5-4670k. There's no need for i7 in gaming and recording: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116899
    For the motherboard, grab the ASRock Z87 Extreme4 instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157369
    For the ram, you only need 2x4gb. This is a good one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233359&Tpk=corsair%20vengeance%202x4gb%20lp%201866mhz
    You don't need a full-tower case. This is a great and cheaper case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139010
    You don't need extra fans.
    If you want a psu to be able to SLI in the future, you want a 850w one. This is good: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207028

    Also, you need an aftermarket cpu cooler to overclock. This is a great cpu cooler for overclocking:

    Additionally, it comes in different colors for aesthetics purposes.

    He basically covered everything lol. But just one thing:
    If you have the money, go with liquid cooling. Many people consider it overkill but if you have the money, why not.
