Hey guys this is my first time building a computer so can you help me learn what to do and what not to do? thanks. I kinda found out my build from looking at reviews of stuff. my budget it 1100 not including a mouse and keyboard which I have. I am from Canada so Canadian stores would be ideal. Im also not sure about over clocking and crossfire. So should i over clock or should i not.... Also I want a decent sound card to use with my headphones ATH-M50s. SO this is my build so far, and can you tell me what to change. BTW this will be mainly for gaming and some photoshop work.

CPU: Intel core i5 2500k
Case: NZXT crafted series ATX full tower steel chassis- phantom black (should i get a cheaper one?)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2x4) 1600 MHz DDR3 ram
Power Supply: Cooler Master Elite Series Power Supply-460 Watts, ATX (how mant watts should my power supply have)
Motherboard: Asus P8P67-M PRO SATA 6gb/s usb 3.0 micro ATX intel motherboard
CD drive: LG CD/DVD burner black SATA model GH22NS70
Harddrives: Western Digital caviar green 2 tb sata III 64 mb cache desktop hard drive bulk/OEM
Graphics Card Saphire Radeon hd 6950 (crossfire?)
Monitor: Asus ML228H 22 inch ultra slim widescreen LED monitor (should i go LCD or LED and should i get a bigger screen)
Soundcard: ? I don't know yet

Thanks guys, ill read your posts. And I'm super new so don't destroy me for being a scrub

what speed is your RAM that you've selected (you do only need 8 gb, probably want 1600)
since you want to game, should probably upgrade far past an hd 5770, probably get a 6950, at least
I'd get rid of the ssd (just personal preference, I don't think they're worth it, especially since they're kind of expensive and could put that money towards a better video card)
you definitely want a larger power supply and a different motherboard for crossfire
