Hello Forum

I'm currently building my second PC. This is my build so far:

Case: Antec Nine Hundred
Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme6
Video Card: ASUS GTX670-DC2T-2GD5
Core: Core i7 I7-3770K 8 MB
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series Modular TX850M
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4 x 4 GB
Optional drive: LiteOn IHAS124
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 Series Solid State Disk 120 GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2 TB

As you can see, this build is very inspired by the June Performance build.

However, i have some questions:

Will the PSU be powerfull enough to support this build, and make it possible for GPU upgrades in the future?
Is it a good motherboard?
I the core it's money worth, or should i just go with the i5-2500K, or would i be experiencing CPU bottlenecks for the GPU?
Is ASUS the right way to go with this GPU?

All answers and advice appreciated :-)

What is the purpose of the build and what is your budget? You should fill out the sticky on how to ask for advice at the top of the new build section.

Your PSU is plenty for now and for future CF.

I agree - if it's for professional uses or gaming uses the configurations will look completely different.

I'd switch out that SSD - I'm not a fan of Sandforce drives as they're far more likely prone to issues and errors than anything else. Get this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
