Hello everybody, I'm a new user to Tom's Hardware but before even registering in here(which I did like 10 minutes ago lol) I'd follow the community and and get most of my hardware knowledge from you guys since to my experience this is the only place get most accurate and educated answers as well as enjoy having time with memebers and I really appreciate it!

Well, I'm just about to order my PC's hardware parts by Friday and since I don't have ANY kind of PC at this time I'll be ordering FULL PC setup with everything and I wanna get some feedback from knowledgeable/experienced members before I'll actually put my order, I'm going to provide the parts I've chosen for my build, you guys give me your opinion how much of good rig that would make, let me run down the parts`

Case: AZZA Genesis 9000 - here

Mobo: ASRock Z87 OC Formula - here

CPU: Intel core i7-4770K - here

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 780ti superclocked - here

Ram: 2x CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) total of 32GB(4x8), 1,5v,2133MHz,Cas10 - here

SSD: 3x Samsung 840 Pro 256GB - here

Hard Drive: TOSHIBA 3TB - here

Power Supply: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V - here

Monitor: ASUS VG248QE Black 24" 144Hz 1ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD 3D Monitor - here

Liquid Cooler: Corsair H100i - here

Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - here

Mouse: Corsair Vengeance M65 Laser FPS Gaming Mouse - here

Gaming keypad: Razer Orbweaver Gaming Keypad - here

Stereo System: Logitech Z-5500 - here

and these are my essential exceptions from this PC if anyone can suggest if this can handle my requirements, note` that none of these I'll be doing on professional level but I'll be doing it everyday

Web development(php,html,databases,mysql,local website tests), software development(python, c++), running 2 OSs under win8 on VM AT THE SAME TIME(ubuntu and windows server and may also BackTrack) - won't be using them ALL at the same time, just will be running them at the same time so when I need I could just switch to that one, and of course Gaming with some other general use. This is all, Thanks guys for your time reading my question and taking time for answering it, Thanks in advance, Good luck everybody.

I will recommend switching out cases to something like a Corsair 750D. I will also recommend Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3-1866 MHz CAS 9 for better speed and NEVER get Toshiba hard drives. They are utter crap and you'll be better off with a Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB.

Thanks for your input Sir, but as far as I know Corsair 750D doesn't support EATX mobo and mine is one, would like to know what you didn't like about this case? next, I've picked these RAM based on this tutorial I've found http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/memory-scaling-gami... which seems like to prove that 2133MHz ram is sllightly better than the rest(including 1866 and 2400) and it demonstrated in tutorial with variety of RAM kits, what about hard drive yeah I guess I actually should go with WD one for god reliability and name, I'll change that one in my cart before I'll put the order, thanks man:)

3 x SSD's is an over kill.

You could just order 2 .. and be happy about it...

With the extra cash you could buy 2-3 more 2 TB HDD's of WD which would give you acres of space.

Just a thought...
