PC upgrades Suggestions/Opinions

Hello, I've started thinking about upgrading my current PC.
This computer will be used mostly for Gaming, Recording and Rendering.
I decided to change every part of my PC, besides my CPU and Mainboard.
My current CPU is an i7 2600K and my current Mainboard is an Asus - P8Z77-V PRO. <- If anything of them needs to be changed, keep me up2date.

The new things I'm gonna buy in the near future are these:

SSD: Samsung 128GB 2.5-inch SSD 830 Series - 110.36 €
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 680 2GB DirectCU II - 566.50 €
HDD: SEAGATE HDD 1TB - SATA 3,64MBc -7200RPM - 73.55 €
PSU: Be Quiet Pure Power L8 830W - 119.00 €
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit - 41.89 €
CPU Cooler: Be Quiet Dark Rock PRO 2 - 104.96 €
PC Case: Zalman Z9 Plus - 87.99 €

If you have any recommendations, (f.e. trustful and reliable brands or just to suggest something better) then please share them with me.
I beg you to only reply if you are experienced with PC hardware, like I mentioned in the subject.

  1. Bump.
  2. Bumping is illegal in the forums.

    That CPU cooler seems a bit expensive.

    Oh i really didn't know, Thanks for letting me know.

    About the CPU cooler, Do you have to suggest me anything better?
  4. I like the Noctua NH-D14.

    And I just didn't want for you to have to learn the hard way lol :)
  5. To be honest, I wouldn't mind that much about the CPU cooler (I mean I'll buy a cheaper if it's needed and my pockets does not allow me to buy a better). I would want to see what's the opinion of other people here for the chosen hardware stuff (f.e CPU/GPU/SSD/RAMS etc..) and if they have to suggest me any better.. My intention is to build a high-end gaming pc which will be able to run everything smoothly and properly and it'll handle every game at it's fullest.
  6. I'm going to bump this topic, as it's been inactive for so long.
  7. Bump for obvious reasons.
  8. It really just looks fine right now. I like the Radeon HD7970 over the 680 personally.
