Asrock Extreme9//i7-3770k build. Need Help.

Hey, I`m just about to purchase a computer MAINLY for gaming and i was wondering if i may be going a bit overkill on some of the parts.

Anyways, here are my specs.
-Asrock Extreme9
-Ivy Bridge i7-3770k
-Geforce GTX 670
-800W PSU
-16GB DDR3 2133Mhz ram (is that overkill?)
-Samsung 830 Series 256GB SSD
-New Aftermarket heatsink fan
-GPU waterblock (water cooler for the gtx670)

Please throw out some case options for me.

Please let me know if i need more or lesscooling.

Thanks in advance.!

  1. the 3770K will be no practical difference with a 3570K in gaming.

    you can probably get away with the AS Rock Extreme 4 instead of the Extreme 9

    the 670 is fine foir single screen gaming. for three screen gaming, you want two 670s.

    I;ll suggest a 1TB HDD to act as a storage drive

    the 800W PSU is overkill for a single 670, where a single 550-600W PSU will do. for SLI, 700-750W is preferred. Go with a top-class brand (Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, XFX, PC Power & Cooling) at around 750W and you'll be good for two 670s in the future

    yourr only 14É i checked out that build the only thing is i may want a 256gb ssd. and will the case really work with that settup. and the power supply isnt 80+ approved.. shouldnt that be taken into consideration?
  5. scratch that it is 80 approved
  6. everything is good and will work well with each other. if you want a bigger SSD, get this build
