I am an interior architecture student, I need a system for my next semester, and i am going to use autocad, revit and 3ds max.
I am trying to keep the budget low, and have the programs function okay...

Here is the list:

Intel® Core™ i5-2500K
ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 mobo
8GB RAM?
Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB Internal SATA Hard Drive
GTX 460 <--- still thinking what brand should i get...maybe MSI (maybe have SLI later on)
OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W ATX Power Supply (80PLUS, Modular)
Cooler Master CM Storm Scout Mid tower

i checked the price around $900

is there anything i am missing?... this is my first build.... don't really know how to out it together...
and how should i work my cooling system, if i want to overclock....

thank you!!...
