Hello everyone I would like to hear some opinions about this system that i'm going to buy in a near future.
Fist of all I want to say that all these parts are from my locals stores and I cant order anything form the outside because I live in a small island and the shipping costs are out of this world, take this example I've orded my case a Thermaltake Overseer RX-I from spain and I've payed almost 170€ of shipping costs for only 14kg.

The main purposes of this computer will be livestreaming, video editing, and play videogames.

Case : Thermaltake Overseer RX-I
cpu: i7-4770 3.4GHz 8MB Sk1150
board: MSI Z87-G43 GAMING
Ram: Kingston HyperX Beast DDR3-2400Mhz 2x8GB
Graphic card: MSI GTX780 TF OC 3GB
psu: XFX 650W TS
Cpu cooler: CPU Noctua NH-U14S
HD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA III 64MB
SSD: Samsung 2.5“ 840 Evo 250GB

I would like to know if its a balanced system for the purposes of it.

and i got some questions about intake and exhaust of this case.
this case has negative pressure from stock and I quote from what is written on the box:
Quote:

Front (intake) :
200 x 200 x 30 mm Blue LED fan (600~800rpm, 13~15dBA)
Rear (exhaust) :
120 x 120 x 25 mm Turbo Fan (1000rpm,16dBA)
Top (exhaust) :
200 x 200 x 30 mm Blue LED fan (600~800rpm, 13~15dBA)
200 x 200 x 30 mm fan (Optional)
Side (intake) : Optional
200 x 200 x 30 mm fan
Bottom (intake) : Optional
120 x 120 x 25 mm fan

If I buy the optional fans 2x200mm and one 120mm will it be better or worse? and will my psu handle these whole fans cause I have no idea, the one that i might buy to use on the case are
Coolermaster Mega Flow 200mm and coolermaster SickleFlow 120mm mainly because they don't sell here locally thermaltake stuff.

so mainly i want some opinions about the system and about the case if possible.

Thanks in advance.

It will probably not cool much better with more fans. People always think they need more fans than they really do.

The stock fan setup is plenty for your system.

Get the K version of the CPU because you cannot overclock the non-K version.

Hmm yes a k CPU might be a good thing I've went to the local stores earlier today and unfortunately no i7 "k" only a i5-4670K's. If I go with this CPU(i5k) will the performance decrease dramatically? oh and another thing about the rams, they are 2400Mhz ones and the on the motherboard description says and I quote:
Quote:
Suports 4 x DDR3 1066/1333/1600/1866*/2000*/2133*/2200*/2400*/2600*/2666*/2800*/3000*(*OC) MHz DRAM, 32GB Máx

this means that I've to go to the bios and change de speed of the ram manually for 2400mhz?

ill be honest I don't have much experience in overclockings but I started working recently in one of the locals stores and maybe I can learn something from the experienced technicians so in the beginning I wont be overclocking the CPU from the start maybe in a few months later or even a year don't know but ill do it in a future.

No, an i5 is what you want for gaming, not an i7. Unless you plan to encode and render 1080p 1hour+ projects, an i5 will be perfectly fine.

Yes, you must manually overclock the RAM in the BIOS. But honestly really fast RAM is a bit of a waste. Your RAM will not really be noticeably faster than normal 1600mhz RAM. ONLY get fast RAM if it costs the same as 1600mhz RAM. Never pay a premium for it.

Almost the same price for the 1600mhz just a diference of 2 euros, between the 1600 ones and the 2400 ones not a huge difference so ill go with the 2400mhz since the motherboard supports them.

Thanks for the tips!
