------------------------------ //UPDATEHey whats up guys? Its my 16th Birthday in November and i think its time to get myself a Fairly High Budget Computer ; recently Ive fallen in love with computers and i really wanna build the perfect rig for my uses and money . I will be Using it for Video Editing, Hardcore Gaming, Listening to Music, Programming/Game Development, YouTube Commentating and Gameplay, General Use (Internet, Homework) etc.
As some of you may know Ive posted a few Discussions but my Computer has changed again so im going to list my components below, if you wish to use Part Picker there will be a link for that to. Keep in mind that im thinking about overclocking the CPU to at least 4Ghz . Thanks allot guys, Feedback is much Appreciated!

Here's a list of pros and cons comparing the upgraded PC to the original (the one you made)
Based on a Higher-End platform which has numerios benefits such as better SLI performance and a very good upgrade path.
Better Hard Disk Drive
Better SSD (if updated and not filled in to max capacity)
More powerfull power supply which is sure to deliver enough power to your system even after you upgrade it with another dual GPU card and a eight core CPU and overclock it to its maximum.
More RAM which might or might not help you.
Less power efficient CPU which is also a bit slower (within 5%)
12 pounds more expensive
^ That is definitely a much better build than the one that you made, but a non overclockable CPU and no point of an expensive aftermarket cooling is the difference from his and mine. Hes given you a much better platform in the case that you upgrade in the future, but removed your overclocking abilities.
Its your call, thats pretty much the main difference between your build and his.
Also note, if you click on your DH-14 link, they have a combo for both the i7 3770k and the DH-14 matched together
