I have given up trying to build a computer that would be both an awesome business computer and amazing gamer… so business it it.
At this point I don’t know what power supply or what other fans I should add so please help me out there.
Dual Monitor System – I might connect my plasma tv once and a while.
Windows 8 pro 64 bit
Asus p8z77 v pro / thunderbolt
i7-3770k
Nvidia quadro 4000
corsair vengeance 16gb ddr3
2 western Digital Red 1 TB hard drive – I want to learn how to set these up to raid 0 and could use some help understanding what I will need.
Cooler Mater Storm Trooper – I have no idea why this is cheaper than the hal X. it looks real nice.
I guess my most demanding jobs will be
Photo shop, premiere pro, and after effects.
It was fun but now its time to finish this project.
Hope I didn’t forget anything.
Thank you
Tom

quadro is not for gaming unfortunately, but if you need that, well not sure if you can use both a gaming gpu and that

The best CPU fans ever are the Noctua NF-F12s

As far as CASE fans, SickleFlow, or Corsar AR fans are good.


Powersupplies?

I'd recomend:

Corsair 600m
Any Seasonic
Antec 600W+ 80PLUS certified

thank you for your reply.
I have been reading some threads on here about raid 0 and will be making some changes.
Will use a solid state drive for OS and Programs
using 2 smaller cheaper WD reds for the raid 0
and will be adding 2 more drives at about 1tb each.

if you feel this changes the power supply needs or fan recommendations please let me know.
thanks again. lots to learn.

600 watts is enough, make sure that you pick a power supply that a sufficient ammount of sata cables to power all of those hard drives.

I ended with two SSD's and one hard drive. I am really happy with this computer.
