I've been wanting to make a new system for a while and I was looking around the other day for parts and what not, and this is what I've found so far:

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
Cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE2 54.4 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Storage: Intel 330 Series 240GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3GB Video Card
Case: Thermaltake Armor Revo Snow Edition (White) ATX Full Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast 850W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply
Optical Drive: LG CH12LS28 Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer


I was just wondering what you guys thought of the build. It would be mainly used for gaming and the occasional photoshopping and what not.
Any and all feedback and tips are appreciated,
Cheers.
