Hello, i have ordered my computer from ibuypower. Before I ordered it, i went on to multiple forum sites to help me on what i would need. I will be gaming, definately watching and burning blu-ray discs, photoshop, after effects, and multiple 3D programs. My build is as followed:

Case: NZXT Alpha Gaming Case - Black
Intel Core i7 2700K Quad Core Processor @3.5 GHz
AMD Radeon HD 7850 - 2GB - Single Card
16GB DDR3-1600 RAM, [8GB x 2] Corsair
Asus P8Z68-V LX Mobo
850 Watt Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2
Liquid CPU Cooling [SOCKET-1155] + Dual ARC Fans
LG Blu-Ray Writer
Windows 7 Professional
+ Other extra stuff that doesn't effect performance

Is this build good for what I do? I also watch a lot of HD Youtube videos, so I am hoping that this build is good enough for what I am wanting to do.

Buy a smaller PSU , max. 650W is more than enough.

wait a week to a month if you can, with the GTX 680 series cards just being released ull be able to drop back to a 2500k and pick up a 7950 for ur build instead.

will get you much better gaming performance.

For 3D and what he work 2600k , 2700k is the best procesor.
680 is good just for gaming but in aplications in what you use GPU for work is the worst.

So the AMD radeon HD 7850 is bad for what I do? Or are you talking about the 680?

If you're NOT gaming and using serious 3D modeling (AutoCAD, etc) consider a mid-range FirePro.

I'm doing gaming, I am LEARNING 3D, I am not avid yet. I use after effects a lot, and ps a lot. It is all about even. Is the 7850 good for that?
