I am new to building computers and I want to make a powerful one that can handle render times when working with 3ds max, after effects, and real flow etc.

I want it to be powerful and fast but my budget is around $2,000. So far from my personal attempt at learning and stealing from other builds and opinons I have a base of what I might want but I'm not sure if this is good enough or if it will fit or work together etc. Any suggestions or opinions are greatly appreciated!

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz Quad-Core

CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM

Motherboard: ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP ATX LGA1155

Memory: Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600

Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM
OCZ Vertex 4 256GB 2.5" SSD

Video Card : Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 3GB

Case: Cooler Master HAF X ATX Full Tower

Power Supply: SeaSonic 560W ATX12V / EPS12V

Optical Drive: Asus BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer

Monitor: Asus VS239H-P 23.0"

Please help! And sorry for anything stupid! I am trying my best to learn and figure all this out.

Yeah thats a good build, will work fine, buy a better PSU though, 560W isn't doing you any favors.
