Any Problems with this Build?

Hey I'm about to build my first pc, and think I have everything all set, but just want to make sure everything is going to work right.

It's going to be for gaming, video editing, and such, and I plan on OCing.

-Azza 910 Helios Midtower Case
-Intel i5 2500k
-BIOSTAR TP67XE (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Mobo
-Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA
-Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce 560 1GB DDR5 Graphics Card
-GSkill DDR3 8gb 4x4gb 1333 RAM
-HP 24x multiformat dvd/cd writer

I just need a PSU that is efficient and will have enough wattage to run this all.

My biggest question is the board. Is it a good enough board for what I want to do? And how good of a system do you think this will be? I already bought the graphics card, dvd/cd drive, the case, and the ram.

    Not bad. My thoughts are below...

    CPU Cooler - Don't forget one if overclocking..

    MB - Biostar is OK, but I would go with the Gigabyte below for the same cost. It is better set up for dual GPUs down the road and, IMHO, is a better board...

    PSU
    -Single GPU => XFX 650w ($60 after MIR) => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207014
    -Considering Dual GPU => XFX 850w ($90 after MIR) => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207011
  2. Thanks for the help!

    What makes the gigabyte board better than the biostar board, other than for use with multiple gpus?

    IMHO, A better track record. The Biostar board would probably be just fine, but I try to stick with ASUS and Gigabyte for a quality motherboard.
  4. Alrighty thanks. About the CPU cooler though. The reviews say that 120mm cooler is really big and may not fit in all cases. Do you think I would have a problem with that at all for my case? It's dimensions are 18.10" x 8.10" x 19.70". I could go with the same cooler master but with a 92mm fan/heatsink, which would probably fit more easily.
