I am currently majoring in 3d animation and have decided to build my own computer but am at a loss on going about it. What its going to be used for is Maya, Zbruch, photoshop, etc. I will be focusing on modeling and rendering out still images. Any professional opinion would be great.

Here's what I have so far:

CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K Hexa-Core Processor 3.2 Ghz 12MB Cache LGA 2011
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16BG (4x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800)
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-z77x-UD3H LGA 1155 Intel z77 HDMI Sata 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel
GPU: not sure
Boot Drive: not sure
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST1000BM003 1TB 7200 RPM Sata 6.0GB/s 3.5
Psu: Not sure
CPU Cooler: Not sure
Case: Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced Blue Edition RC-932-KKN3-GP ATX Full w/ usb 3.0 or Corsair Obsidian series 650D (cc650DW-1) Black steel structure w/ black brushed aluminum faceplate atx mid tower

I appreciate any help you could give me, thank you.
