Hey guys, so I've finished my first build. All I have left is to decide on water cooling set up.

So I'd appreciate any input into this build, such as better parts, better performance etc.


CPU: Intel CORE i7 3820/3.60GHz/10MB CACHE/LGA2011/4CORES
Mobo: Gigabyte G1-ASSASSIN 2 MB, Socket 2011, Intel X79, 4x DDR3, 3x PCI-E3.0, SATA3
GPU: MSI GTX670,2GB,DDR5,965MHz,256bit,Overclock to1045MHz,2xDVI,DP,HDMI,SLI,PC
HDD: Seagate SATA3 2TB 7200RPM Barracuda 64mb Cache
SDD: OCZ 128G Vertex 4 Series SSD
RAM: Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 DDR3
PSU: OCZ Fatalt1ty 750W PSU

Total cost of $1503 AUD.

I'd appreciate any help with improvements, or parts that are incompatible. Especially with regards to the PSU, I'm a little unsure if thats enough for the GPU, water cooling and the rest of the system.
I still have over a month before I have saved enough for this, so i'll be doing more research, but let me know what you think

Have you bought all the components?

What will you be using this build for?

Nahh not yet, still saving. I'm just getting as much research in as I can, also I am probably going to get 2 of the GPU's


And a large portion of gaming, youtube video's as a hobo. Plus engineering design programs, such as autocad, solid works. I study engineering so I use these occasionally.

Yeah i7 is better in this case, for some reason I thought it was gaming rig. Maybe 12gb of ram would be better to get as we'll for your needs

Alright I'll keep that in mind, I was looking at the 3 stick sets of 4gb, but we'll see
as getting two GPU's breaks budget a bit, which just means more saving time, but i'll still shave off pennies where I can
