Hi Everybody.

First off, I have read through the sticky (twice), as well as researched on other forums, but decided to join this community. I am looking for an all inclusive kit recommendation for a new build, right around the $300 price range. I am a pretty experienced builder, having built several computers for myself over the past 10 years, and fixing/upgrading many setups for other folks.

Planned components:
NZXT Switch 810 Gun Metal
Intel Core i7 3770K
ASUS Sabertooth Z77
EVGA GeForce GTX 670
Thermaltake Black Widow 850W PSU
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB)
512GB SSD I already have
I'll probably add a big slow disk later if needed.
Some internal blu-ray burner

This is my first adventure into watercooling, so I plan on building a CPU only loop initially. When I do my first round of maintenance on the loop, it's possible i would add a second GPU and a separate GPU loop. I'm planning on using the setup for gaming (of course!), as well as some pretty intensive software engineering stuff when I'm working at home. I plan on overclocking the 3770k, but that's not as much of a priority as bling and quiet.

Thanks.

the sticky has that covered here...$300 is a good range for a cpu only loop and will allow you to venture into GPU's and maybe more raddage down the road.
