Hey folks,
I'm currently in the market for a new gaming rig and would appreciate your input regarding the build I am looking at.

I'd like my rig to be very future proof so I'm willing to spend a little more but not tons for little performance increase. I'd like it to look good (even though I'll pretty much be the only person to see it) so I've chosen a case which is more than just functional. I realise that buying the components separately and building the rig myself would cost less but I would prefer a bunch of professionals to take care of that for me and supply me with a two year warranty.
Without further ado, the rig:
PC Case: Thermaltake Chaser MK-I Black Full Tower Gaming Case
Power Supply: Corsair Professional HX750 80+ Modular High Performance PSU
Processor: Intel Core i7 3770K 3.5Ghz Overclocked to (8 x 4.6GHz) CPU
Heatsink & CPU Fan: Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid Cooler
Motherboard: MSI Big Bang MPower Z77 WIFI Bluetooth SATA6Gb/s USB3.0 MB
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3 2133Mhz High Performance RAM
Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256bit DDR5 Overclocked Edition Card
Primary Hard Drive: Corsair Force GS 240GB r: 555mb/s w: 525mb/s SSD
Secondary Hard Drive: 1TB Seagate Barracuda SATA3 7200rmp HDD
Main Optical Drive: 24x Dual Layer DVD +/- Writer
Monitor: Samsung S24B370H 24" HDMI 2ms 1920x1080 Full HD LED

If you'd like to see the original build (or anything else the website has to offer) it is
Would appreciate your appraisal

I would get an i5 3570k and 8gb of ram. Yes, with those parts it will be a very future proof build.

Is that for any particular reason? If it's price the i7 and 16Gb don't cost a great deal more which is why I went for them
