My first build any suggestions

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.
  2. Thanks for the reply oh and btw would it be worth upgraded to 32GB ram or no?
  3. Nope 32GB doesn't wont show any improvement
