    this is why im asking the questions, i feel i would like to overclock in future but does this eman i will need to upgrade my cooling system?
  4. that 7600K wont come with a cooler. u have to buy one anyway. and suppose if u r overclocking, look for a decent cooler like the sythe mugen 5.

    K cpu means it's unlocked for overclocking.
    B motherboard is locked to OC, you'd need a Z mobo paired with a K cpu. Must have both to OC.
    Nice gpu.
    Nothing fancy, low profile corsair ram.
    Nice cpu cooler, if you want something not much better than a stock replacement.
    Miserable psu, bad quality and at 450w it's underpowered for the cpu/gpu combination. You need at least a good 550w.
    The WD Red series is designed for Nas, raid combinations of multiple, redundancy etc. Not designed for normal home users. You'll need Black or Blue series.
    SSD, ehh, there are better
    Case isn't too shabby, decent quality.

    I'd suggest you go to pcpartpicker.com, it'll have the full listing of what you need or could want in a pc, and a full list of certified vendors and prices of all you'd choose to buy from.
