Hi everybody,

I am quite new to the whole pc building but I did a lot of reading and watching in the last few months to put a new system together. I would use it mainly for CAD work ( SolidWorks, Keyshot, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.) and the occasional game ( It wouldn't need to have insane fps on the highest settings or even run the very latest games).
I am planning on doing a medium overclocking but nothing really above 4.3 Ghz.

Would be great if you could advise me on:
1. If the parts would work well together.
2. Better alternatives for some components.
3. General thoughts on the build.


Here is the parts list

Case: NZXT Tempest 410 Midi Tower or Fractal Design Core 3000

CPU: Core i7-3770K "Ivy Bridge"

Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

Motherboard: Asus p8z77-v or Asus p8z77-v Pro

GPU: ATI FirePro V3900 or V4900

RAM: 8GB or 16GB kit depending on offers and budget.
Corsair Vengeance "Low Profile" 1600MHz or Kingston HyperX 1600MHz

PSU: OCZ-ZT 550W modular or Corsair Enthusiast Series Modular TX550M or Sea Sonic M12II-520

SSD: OCZ Vertex 4 128G or Samsung 830 Series 128 GB or Plextor M5 Pro 128GB Extreme Series

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Balck 1TB 7200rpm

Optical Drive: Any simple and cheap DVD-Writer

Fans: Arctic F12 PWM Case Fan - 120mm or Coolermaster Blade Master Fan - 120mm or
Akasa AK-FN058 Apache Black Super Silent 120mm

Display: Two LG IPS LED 23 inch "IPS234V-PN.AEK"



Thank you very much in advance for any tips or comments.

Thanks for the tip anti-painkilla.
I will move soon the UK and will buy all the parts there.
I don't mind too much about the sellers, I guess whoever has the best offers and not too many different ones to keep the shipping costs low.
My budget is about £1000.

Thanks.
