Hi guys,

this is my first attempt at building a new computer and thought it would
be prudent to get some advice and opinions on what I am planning.

I want a rig that can handle gaming plus the occasional rendering/heavy data
crunching. I should also say I am from Australia so my selection of parts is a bit limited
and I am trying to get everything from http://www.msy.com.au

The current build I have is as follows
Cpu - Intel i5-3570k
MOBO - AsRock Z77 extreme 6
Ram DDR3 - Corsair vengeance (2x8gig kit)
VGA - 2G GTX 670 Asus
Case - Corsair obsidan CC650DW
PSU - Corsair HX750 v2
SSD - Samsung 840/pro SATA3 120GIG
HHD - WD Black SATA3 1TB FAEX
HEAT SINK - Coolermaster Universal Hyper 212 EVO
Optical drive - SATA DVD RW LG

Any help you would like to give would be appreciated

Take extreme 4 for MoBo. It is maybe cheaper. Looks good to me your build.

Thanks

My personal opinion is that the Crucial M4 is a more reliable SSD. They both deliver similar performance. Maybe the 840 is a little faster. But it is an SSD, it's already fast enough. I would recommend reliability over a little bit of speed. That is my personal preference.
