have i missed any component that i'd need for it(sound card, etc.) and also is the 16 Gb of ram too much overkill?
this is my first pc build so i'd very much appreciate all feedback to do with it, and opinions from people about making it better. Also i'd like this build to be as stress free as possible so it'd be great just to know that all the components are compatible and that it wont set on fire when i hook it all up,
16gb is quite overkill. you don't need more than 8gb for gaming and video editing. Only some video and 3d rendering requires more than 8gb of ram. Everything else seems pretty solid, you've definitely did your homework. Personally, I wouldn't go for Asrock motherboard but it's your choice. A slightly higher video card would also be better though if it fits your budget
thanks, but why wouldn't you go for the Asrock? Which'd you reccomend instead? ...... aye it may be, i'll have to see, better to pay slightly more now than have to rebulid it cause it wont play new games,
Asrock boards had some issues, but this is from personal experience. Choose the mobo made from gigabyte, asus and msi. The gigabyte z68xp-ud3p is the one i would go, it supports upcoming ivy, pci 3.0 and a very solid board for overclocking. If you can get the 560ti it would be a lot better, 560(non ti) is just an overclocked 460
