Guys, before I will shop for the parts tomorrow. I need your opinion about this rig.

Intel i7-2600k
Asus P8Z68-M Pro
16Gb Ram
STRIDER ESSENTIAL/SST-ST60F-ES
Asus GTX 560

Do I need something to change or add?

Do not get that motherboard. Matx motherboards do not offer as much as atx boards do. I suggest the p8z68-v/gen3 or v-pro/gen3.

tnx boss. Whats the difference between the two boss? by the way boss I am using this rig for 3d rendering and video editing not for gaming. Do I need to get the p8z68-v/gen3 instead of Asus P8Z68-M Pro ?

if this is supposed to be a gaming rig, i would ditch the i7 2600k for an i5 2500k. as a gamer, you won't experience much benefit from the i7's hyperthreading and it'll cost you $100 more. i would reinvest that money in getting the best GPU possible. most games these days are bottlenecked by GPU and the way AMD and Nvidia are staggering releases the top-tier cards are actually a good investment. you can get a top-tier card now and sell it a year from now at 80-90% of its debut price to upgrade to the latest and greatest without much cash outlay.

if you want a sweet sub $1000 build, check mine out: www.rightrig.tumblr.com
