Hi guys,

This is mainly a vanity question but i wanted to know what the community thought about my build.

I'd also welcome any suggestions far alternative parts.

Here it is:

CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k (Not sure if i should go for the equivalent 2011 socket CPU for about $200 more, the i7 4930k).

Motherboard: (Im pretty dead set on this board if i go with the 1150 socket cpu) AsRock z87 Extreme 6

RAM: 32GB G.Skill Trident-X 1600MHz (Want cheap 1600MHz ram really that's either blue or black)

GPU: Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB (I hear Nvidia is better for editors due to the cuda for adobe).

PSU: NZXT HALE90 850Watt 80+ Gold (Not really up for debate because i like the white color and it will go well with the case)

CPU Cooler: Corsair H110

Storage: 1x 3TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm and 1x 120GB Samsumg 840 EVO SSD

Case: NZXT Phantom 530

Other: D-Link 300MB/s wireless card
3x Fractal Design R2 140mm Silent Fans

Let me know what you think.
I'd rather not go over a budget of $2500 (Keep in mind im australian so things will cost waaaay more for me)!

its a pretty awesome build for editing/gaming rig. the only thing i would recommend is you drop your 32gb to 16gb as 16gb would be enough and grab either gtx 780 or gtx 780 ti. also i would recommend you change your psu to seasonic, xfx or corsair...i would recommend the seasaonic x-series 850w it is a great psu

EDIT: sorry didnt see the not really a debate for the psu lol...so forget my psu recommendation :)

Great build. NZXT Phantom cases are my absolute favorite because they make everything easy about building a PC and they really incorporate some cool ideas such as SSD mounts on the back side of the motherboard tray plus a multitude of 3.5" drive bay options. Great PSU made by Super Flower (although the V2 is made by FSP :(  ). Do you know which it is?

I would go with an Asus motherboard over an ASrock. ASrock is the bargain brand of motherboards. Do you really want to stick the rest of your great components onto that board? If you're looking for a decent SLI board, the Z87-A is good.

Everything else is great.

I do understand people would rather spend a little bit more and get a better brand. but you have to understand that aus prices are so screwed up.. the Asrock board is $212 AUD.. if i go with an ASUS board of the same caliber i would be spending another $100. Its stupid. Howerver, my current build is using an asrock board and i have had no issues, besides is not being able to control my fan speeds correctly.

Understood. I didn't know the prices were that bad.
