This is PC a good build? I'm gonna do intensive 3D rendering in Blender, video editing and play games like Crysis 3.

Intel core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge
Asus P8Z77-M Pro
Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2 GB GDDR5
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz 4GB RAM
Cooler Master Thunder 500W Power Supply
Lian Li lancool PC-k57 USB 3.0 Cabinet
Windows 8 single language
Western Digital WD 500GB Caviar Blue 7200RPM / Seagate 1TB ST31000524AS

I'd really love to get the K version but it is 80 dollars more. Also, I live in India where the GTX 660 is 300 dollars.
Any suggestions of improvements for this build?

I am assuming you already have the hard drives? If not, dump one of them for an SSD.

No, I dont. Where I live the E3-1230V2 is 20 dollars more than at what I'm getting the i7-3770.

I'm not getting both of the HDD, I'll be getting one of the 2. I considered getting an SSD, but an SSD should accompany an HDD and I cant get both!

I converted my PC's Price in INR to USD and it is 1280 USD! Anyone care to tell me what I'd be able to get if I were an american citizen? Just curious!

Is there any limiting factors in why you must choose between these 2 drives, I don't like either one of them. The WD Blue is not big enough, and the Seagate has a pretty high failure rate. Not bad drives mind you, just would rather have something else.

Nope, no limiting factors. I just found these 2 drives and heck, I chose them! I also considered a 2 TB caviar green, dont know if it can actually beat these drives.
What HDD would you suggest with this PC? :D

Stretching the Budget I can go for max 70,000 INR. Divide it by 50 for USD. I'm in India and I have to say, heck the duties here are Bad! :o 

I'm getting Windows 8 OS (I'm a Tech Savvy person) I'm geting a Logitech G100 combo for the Mouse + Keyboard for 1800 Rupees. As for the Monitor, I'm getting a BenQ 24 inch for around 9,000, good price according to me.

Wow, I made the above PC in the thread for Rs 64k and the one you made is Rs 80k :p 
This is so too expensive. But gee, thanks! Hopefully I'll be able to salvage something :D 
But there is a reason I'm getting i7-3770, as I'll be doing Rendering as well! All I'm asking for is do all those specs merge to form a better PC. I want no bottleneck and I'm not the best at this so I'm looking for suggestions; room for improvement, I'll order it myself as I'm an expert at looking for rock bottom prices! :D

and u overclocked u wont see a difference with the 3770 compared to the 3570k. also the program needs to be optimized for ht or else u might get negative performance or no performance increase at all

You may be able to find better deals from local stores but mostly depends on where you live. Also flipkart is not that reliable in my opinion.

I know flipkart is probably the most popular online website for pc hardware in India but its not that reliable and there is limited choice for parts. I read somewhere that they sometimes sell refurbished products. Don't know if that's true. I personally got two faulty stuff from flipkart, a cheap gaming controller (which was not reliable anyway) and a microsoft wireless mouse (which i think should be of decent build quality). But lots of people i know have got stuff from them and did not have any problems. The thing about price is true though. I found that pc hardware is more cheaper in local retail stores where i live.There is itdepot.com but i don't know anything about them.

Getting this rig in India will cost about 90,000. That's well over his budget.

Prices in India are like 1.3- 1.5 times the price in US. Which means a 1,000$ rig in US is like 1,300 to 1,500$ in India.

Just a thought, how much are customs? One option might be having someone ship it to you from a country that doesn't have such a premium on computer parts.

Oh, how much I envy the price of hardware in the US, all that hardware just for 60k T_T
The duties in India are mad, if you buy a car and import it to india the duties are gonna be 150% that means a 20,000 dollars car will be 50k in India. INSANE

I've looked at ebay and flipkart, and I live in the capital, so I'll get a decent discount!

Hell, that 7970 for 379 dollars, my GTX 660 is costing me 300 dollars!

Yeah, your build is solid, I have one question, I'm getting this cabinet:
NZXT Crafted Series Guardian 921 RB USB 3.0
http://www.ebay.in/itm/NZXT-Crafted-Series-Guardian-921...

It is written to be a USB 3.0 cabinet but I cant find it elsewhere to be USB 3.0, is it really USB 3.0 or a ***?

Also, Is the power supply Ice sent good enough (Seasonic 520 Watt) if I want an SLI, can it handle it? I'll be getting the GTX 660 and later would like to SLI it.
