Will this setup work? This is my first build.

Intel Core i7-4770K 4core
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
MSI Z87- ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (2X8GB) DDR3-1600
Kingston SSDNow V300 120G 2.5" (I want to boot my operating system from this disk and maybe put a few more applications on it)
Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM HDD
Asus PCE-N53 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter
BitFenix Shinobi Window ATX Mid-tower case
Corsair CX 500W 80+ Bronze certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

This computer will be used for (in order of frequency):
1. Gaming/Recording/1080p video rendering
2. Application Development
3. 3D Design
4. Media playback

The CPU is the most important thing in this build for me, and my plan was to not buy a graphics card unless I decided I actually needed/wanted one once I got the whole thing setup.

How much work is it to get Windows 7 and Ubuntu to boot from the SSD? Is it even possible to do both on one?

  1. I assume you would play high end games since you're recording. I'm pretty sure having a graphics card is good.

    Not really, I prefer strategy games and in general graphics really arent all that important to me.

    In that case, this is perfect. But I might get a better PSU. Like gold rating. Just personal opinion.
