I7-3770K is a beast once overclocked, and the 7970 has great compute performance as well as great gaming performance. I added a 500GB SSD and a 1TB WD Black. The SSD is from mushkin, and although it isn't super fast it is still very speedy and perfect for writing video files to, and is big enough to store your OS, video files, and important games or apps.
