Memory is iffy. Is there are reason as to why you wouldn't want (2x 4GB Modules)? and Why not Just 1x 2TB HDD? Save up on the cabling and Wattage.

Also that H60 is horrendous if you will even Overclock. Try the Noctua NH-D14 (ensure you got room in your case) or settle less costly but efficienty Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO you will get better temperature than the H60.

Last and not least, what will you used this build mainly for? and what is your budget? Maybe i can put something better and cheaper for your need.

Best Luck

Thanks for the reply! To answer the question about memory I would just prefer to have 16 over 8. For the HDD it is a 1x 2TB isn't it? I was thinking of overclocking so thank you for that advice. I want to be able to use my computer to run games ultra settings of course but also to run some programs such as unreal dev kit. Basically I want no limits to what I can run on my computer. I want it to last as well. On my current PC I can't even run Skyrim on settings below minimum. Budget is around $1500.

Thank you again for the help!

My apologies I meant to say 2x 8GB (16GB is great if you're doing some serious video editing, autocad, or photoshop) but 8GB is sufficient for you everyday gaming (and that cash saved you can bump it to yoru GPU or SSD which i noticed you didn't have one listed)

Ahh I picked 4x4 only because I read somewhere something about taking advantage of having quad channel memory and to do that you should use 4x4. I am not entirely sure about that. :S I do use Photoshop, premiere and other adobe programs regularly and I am a programmer as well. I wouldn't say I am just using this computer for light gaming. It will be used for some gaming, and also some work of my own on various programs. I am a computer science student and I for what I want to teach myself and what I am learning I will need a stronger computer. For the SSD I never really saw the need for it.

The SSD with certainly help you with your line of work. Blazing Fast. Again you dont' need tons of space being you will dump all other material in your secondary hard drive. LGA2011 Build is beast. Let me see what i can put what it would look like. on www.pcpartpicker.com

okay that would be great. Honestly though I created my build using a websites assistance. You can check it out here what I was looking at buying. I've personally always wanted to just build the whole PC myself but I am a beginner at choosing the parts I want. www.cyberpowerpc.com/saved/1FURA5. This is what I was looking at. I miss-clicked best answer to soon.

Here are two options you got your LGA2011 Build, squeezing in at $1500 but the issue with this build is you're limited to your video card (GTX 770, great card but if you're doing 1080p or higher gaming a GTX780 would be best. Would eat anything you throw at it).

Build One (with LGA 1150)

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2Ru9H

Build Two (with LGA 2011) other members here can probably shave a bit more out of this build, but i wouldn't buy this unless you're seriously thinking of doing a crazy 3-Way SLI (which GTX 780 can do it all on its own).

Again this is a suggestion and with that kind of cash, i suggest not to rush into thing and do a bit of homework :) 

Best Luck
