I am going to build my very first pc. It's going to be used for video compositing, 3d rendering and gaming.
Does these specs look good and will it work?

Processor: i7-3770K 3,5Ghz with boost to 3,9Ghz
Graphics Card: GeForce GTX680 2gb
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Cooling: Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H80
PSU: Corsair Professional Series, HX750
SSD: Crucial m4 128GB SATA 6Gb/s
Tower: Antec Three Hundred TWO

Would it be able to run BF3 at ultra settings? :wahoo:

There is no need for 16gb, even with a lot of programs running its hard to come close to 8. Its just a nice thing to have lol not going to lie though i have 16gb but only got it because it really cheap. its really your choice, its not going to hurt your system to have 16, just if you want to spend the extra money.
