I am building beasty PC for 3D rendering/video editing (yay)
This is my first time building a pc from scratch, I feel like I have everything somewhat under control, but I would like you guys to give advice on the components, like if there's something I am unaware of. Especially the cpu and ram has got to be running together fluently.
The hardware: (links are in danish)
CPU: AMD FX-8350, 8MB, FSB: 2600Ghz bit.ly/XLTU5O
RAM: 32GB 2400GHz Kingston HyperX Predator bit.ly/Wp3T2P
GPU: eVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Superclocked+, 3GB bit.ly/12lS9AW
(2nd GPU: Some older, used nVidia GPU)
Soundcard: ASUS Xonar DX bit.ly/XPvnty
I am still deciding on the motherboard, the 750 W PSU (or higher?), to use or not to use other than standard cpu cooler, cabinet, BRD drive, HDD or SSD etc.
Extras: Win8 x64, Dell UltraSharp U2713HM, A Samsung 1920x1200 display
Do you guys have any advice on the components I am still deciding between? Anything I have forgotten to consider?
It will all work just fine. No need for the second GPU, it will slow things down.
I won't use it for anything else than working with
The second gpu will act as a backup gpu when editing/rendering in Blender3D. When rendering on the gpu, the UI becomes unresponsive and slow, because rendering is utilizing 100% gpu. A feature makes it possible to shift viewport rendering to the other gpu as needed bit.ly/YSi6Bz

What PSU will you use?
I am still deciding between 750 W or 1000 W, and my internet is acting kind of weird so can't really do any research atm.
Any preferred PSU-manufacturers?
The above configuration that you have stated is very much compatible with the kind of work you have suggested and described,About the mother board i think you should stick with the 750 W PSU,As it would be suitable for your current configuration.For performance Tuning SSD will be very useful and your 3D rendering or any other work would not be affected at all.
