guyz what do u think of this build? is there anyway i can improve this rig with less money on the shelf? im building a rig for both 3D rendering and playing games that are currently available/ will be in the market at least on high settings. hit me with some decent specs of ur own taste.

Intel Core i7-4820K
Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti 2GB GDDR5
Kingston 16GB hyperX Beast
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200Rpm 64MB Buff HDD
Power Green Green GP750B-OC

Its a good build, although the GPU is a year old. Try'n get a GTX 760 which is a newer GPU. The CPU should be fine because it has hyper threading...

You've got a socket 2011 CPU and a 1150 mobo, better with the 1150 mobo (would change the GB to the Asus Gryphon) and go with a 4670K CPU

At that price point I'd go the Asus P9X79 LE, OCs better, handles DRAM better, runs cooler

a c 476 4 Gaming

750 is good and a great cooler is the Hyper 212 EVO, very reasonable - about $30-35
