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 http://www.evetech.co.za/config.aspx?id=23377

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
