VM and Gaming Workstation

Hi Guys,

I would like to build a workstation with the below spec:

Casing - Fractal Design Node 304
MotherBoard - P8Z77-I DELUXE
CPU - i7 3770
Ram - G.Skill Ripjaws-x 1600Mhz (8Gb x 2pcs) CL9
HDD - 2 x WD Blue 1TB
Graphic - Gigabyte GTX 670 2GB WINFORCE
Power Supply - Cooler Master 850W M2

Any comments on bottleneck, overkill or .....
Thanks.

  1. Everything should fit, though a few suggestions.

    - Cheaper board = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157312&Tpk=asrock%20z77
    - You're getting a z77 board, might as well get the unlocked(K) version of the i7.
    - Might want low profile RAM, but the RipjawsX should be fine.
    - Scrap out the PSU completely. CM PSUs are known to have high failure rates and arguably mediocre performance. 850w is also overkill especially for a single GPU unit. Get 500-550w instead.
