Hey guys, my name is Shahin, and i was wondering if by any chance you could rate my computer? To start off with, let me say this: I know its a powerful build, but is it worth the money?
another thing i would like to ask, is how much could i sell it for in your opinion? (If i buy all the parts and assemble it myself)
Here is the PCPartPicker link
If you cant use the link, here is a list of parts:
CPU: AMD FX-6350
Motherboard: AsRock Fatall1ty 990FX Killer
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB 1866 (2x8)
PSU: Corsair CSM series CS750M 750 watt PSU
Graphics Card: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 4GB Superclocked w/ ACX Cooling Solution
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H100i
Case: NZXT H440 (Black/Red)

PS. I already have the CPU on hand, so i cant switch to an intel build... sorry.

Im going to be using Auto CAD software such as Autodesk inventor Pro as well as video editing such as Sony Vegas Pro. I also will be doing heavy gaming and was thinking about even more ram and an ssd so i could load games on to the ram for short periods of time.

i see. if this build is final and you're not gonna change anything. This is a great build and nothing will go wrong :)  considering you have a second hand CPU. You can sell this for a few bucks more of the total amount you've spent for your labor.
