1TB Seagate ST1000DM003 Barracuda 7200.12 SATA III 6Gb/s Hard Drive -HDD

16GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte #993995 (4x4GB) 1600 (PC3-12800) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM CAS 9-9-9-24 1.5V

530W be quiet! Pure Power L8 80PLUS Bronze Modular Power Supply

ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M (Socket 1155/Intel Z77/DDR3/S-ATA 600/Micro ATX)

Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Unlocked Processor - Retail

Arctic Cooling Freezer i30 Quiet CPU Cooler

I've already got a dvd writer for the build, still deciding on case but most likely going for a fractal design with soundproofing.


Any opinions, advice or comments are welcome!

Thanks everyone!

Probably would help if I said what I'd be using it for! Pretty much entirely Photoshop and Lightroom. No gaming , though may add a Nvidia MSI GTX-560 as it could be helpful for Photoshop.

Change that psu to a better brand... Corsair, XFX, Seasonic, Silverstone, Antec or Enermax.
