I'm going to be building a new system primarily focused on 3d rendering (3Ds Max etc.) and I was just looking for any tips you guys might have for me.

I've already done a lot of research and this is what I've come up with.

Cpu:
I7 2600k

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MB:
ASRock z77 Extreme4

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU:
MSI TFII 570

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM:
Corsair Vengeance 16gb (4x4gb) ddr3 1600

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD:
WD Caviar Black 1TB

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SSD:
Crucial M4 128GB

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cooling:
H100

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case:
NZXT Phantom ATX Full Tower Red

I would appreciate any tips/suggestions you guys might have and remember this is primarily a rendering build but i will probably be doing SOME gaming with it.

Get rid of the H100, get a cooler like the hyper 212 EVO.

Spend the extra money on a better board.
