2nd build, will everything work together, even when overclocked?

  1. Looks good to me, though you might consider picking up the i5 3570k instead of the i7 and using the money for an SSD instead.

    I was thinking of getting an SSD originally, but he also wants to use the computer for graphics programs that may use a lot of CPU power, this was the only reason I didnt get an i5 and an SSD.

    I'd still recommend the 3570k. There's very little difference in most programs, and an SSD can make a huge difference to speed of response etc. You may also way to investigate 16GB of RAM if doing lots of video or photoshop work.
