Hello,
Can you guys help me build my new computer? I'm building this computer for gaming and little bit of video editing.

Things that I already bought:
1. 600 watts PS with 80 gold
2. 500GB hard drive
3.I am thinking of i7-3770k for my processor
4. 4 fans for my tower

Things that I need help getting:
1. Motherboard (decent motherboard that will go with 3770k)
2. Full size tower (something that has good air flow, I bought 4 fans already)
3. Video card (budget is around $300, I want to play almost all games in max setting if possible)
4. 8 GB ram (does it matter what kind of ram I get?)

If I want to overclock my CPU, do I need after market fan for my CPU?

I bought 2550k, will that be good for overclocking and running games in max setting (of course getting good video card as well)
