I'm building a new PC for Gaming/Work. I have been reading the forums here and was hoping i could get some feedback on the build I put together. I will most likely not be over-clocking immediately but i would like to have the option available for the future. I am looking for this PC to be somewhat future proof, maybe adding a second video card [SLI] in a couple years.
The i7-2600k offers little to no gaming performance improvement over i5-2500k. They are very similar processors except for the fact that the i7 has hyperthreading. Since games use only 3-4 threads nowadays, you wont see much benefit there, although it may be worth it in the future, or if you do CAD or video editing.
16gb is a real ton of ram. 8gb is more than enough. Then again, i remember not that long ago when 1gb sounded like a lot of ram. Also be aware that the tall heatsinks on that ram might prevent you from fitting all 4 sticks with the hyper 212.
For the ssd, i think you should either go bigger or skip it entirely. 64gb is enough for an OS, but youll be extremely cramped in terms of program installation. It doesnt seem like money is a big issue for you, but if it is, id wait for a sale and snag a ~120gb version.
