New Gameing build.

http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/wclE

This is my first gaming build and I have a few questions. I will be overclocking the CPU and GPU.

Is the cooler a bit excessive.
Is the motherboard I selected good enough?
Is the GPU any good because I can't find any reviews?
Is the case good enough for the build?
And what is your overall opinion about the build?

I plan to game regularly and do some video editing and image editing.

Thanks in advance.

  1. i am not any expert but i will tell u what i know/suggest ETC...

    i think about the cooler you should get a 1 of those huge noctua D14's theyre perfect for cooling! :)

    the gpu i suggest an Nvidia card like GTX 680 or so
    the case is good.
    my overall opinion about the build without my suggestions well its a very very good gaming rig- i belive with the GTX 680 you"ll have a better rig for gaming and video editing overall again really really good PC
  2. Is the cooler a bit excessive.
    if you are not sure, go with a strong air cooler. liquid cooling may degrade quality, pumps get noisy, etc

    Is the motherboard I selected good enough?
    good

    Is the GPU any good because I can't find any reviews?
    no, XFX often cannot be OCed. get gigabyte/sapphire

    Is the case good enough for the build?
    your case is expensive.... but it is a very good case :)

    And what is your overall opinion about the build?
    your cpu should be 3570k as it performs similar in game. i7 only benefit in professional software

  4. Thanks for the help. I think I will go for the GTX 680 and also go for the Noctua D14.
  5. Wait! Do you plan on overclocking the GPU??? If so you could just get a GTX 670 ( i prefer the msi Power edition) and overclock it to be just as good or evenfaster than a GTX 680 Stock speed.. and its cheaper.. or do what i do im Getting the MSI R7970 Lightning
