after looking around and asking I came up with my final build. In about a week I will start building it and wanted to know your opinion on it. I will be using it mostly for gaming but will also run some engineering and programing programs on it. I want this build to last me a couple of years which is why I am investing on it and would be only adding stuff to it in the future but not replacing. Such as another graphics card, another optical drive and maybe more memory and another liquid cooling fan in the future when I start overclocking.

My question are is the power supply enough for it? Are all parts compatible? is the hd7970 overall a better choice than the gtx670? and is that fan enough for cooling if Im not doing any overclocking at the moment?

Thanks for your help guys you have been very helpful so far

Your psu is ok it wouldent hurt to go a bit higher your fan is also good if your not overclocking. As far as the GPUs go if your not editing go with the 7970 but if your editing go with the 670 because of its cuda cores.

7950 is more than enough, but otherwise, this is a great build.
