Was thinking of below set up:
Asus P8Z77-V LX with INTEL LGA1155 Core i5 3570k O/C 4.6GHZ with THERMALTAKE CONTAC ULTRA
RADEON HD 7850X - 2GB GDDR5 (option of another one in future maybe)
PATRIOT VIPER 3 VENOM RED DDR3 2133 MHz (2x8gb)(option to add more later)
CORSAIR NEUTRON SERIES SATAIII 6gbs 240gb LAMD SSD
SEAGATE BARRACUDA 1tb SATA3 6gbs Hard Drive
& A CORSAIR 750w PSU
I have not purchased any items yet, am looking to build with my son as a project and obviously a gaming system for him which will get him through his last couple of schooling years (because that's what all teenagers need apparently!) I am totally new to building systems having always purchased completed systems off the shelf and any advice/places to seek advice and learn how to choose and put the kit together would be greatly appreciated. Plenty of advice on here, it's just knowing what to go with and where to start. Whilst not wanting to waste money for example, is it really worth going for the 2133mhz DDR3 or are the benefits going to be minimal?, likewise a 240gb SSD or smaller, or not at all? Have looked at different motherboards and CPU's and feel fairly happy with the above, any comments welcome though.
