I decided to build a PC that will specifically be used for gaming (some standard web browsing also) and have done a lot of research on the subject. i have put together what i think is a high end gaming computer that i will not have to upgrade in the near future. i was wondering if everything here has a good compatibility with each other ( will the computer work if i put these components together). if anyone wants to give advice on cutting down on prices without losing performance then please tell me. i am also wondering if these components will work good together for OCing. please also express any concerns you have if any for this build.

My Build:

Planning on using the SSD as a boot drive. i already know that 16gb of Ram and an i7 processor aren't needed for gaming but im trying to future proof a little bit.

should consider a better GPU if it's in your budget, for the future proofing part, also AMD had the lead on single GPU cards at this moment with overclocking and their newest 12.11 drivers coming out next month (beta already here)

please don't bump less than 24 hours

the AMD 7970 is top their current line, and is usually compared to the 680, but with overclocking and the december drivers wins hands down

you have get one for the same price as the 670, but with stock performance of the 680, and yet the 7970 still beats the 680 when overclocking

AMD and Nvidia are always switching places, so who know how like this lasts
