[ Help/Opinion ] £1700 | Gaming Rig! | 1st Build | Multipurpose

Hey whats up? :hello: Its my 16th Birthday in November and i think its time to get myself a Fairly High Budget Computer :o ; 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. :wahoo:
As some of you may know Ive posted a few Discussions but my Computer has changed since then 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! :bounce:

  1. For a PSU I think the Corsair CX600 should work fine. With that build though I am going to suggest an SSD for OS/boot drive - it'll make a difference.

    ok, thanks. I was going to wait for the Samsung 840 (i think that's the new one?) and get it in a later date but if there's a great ssd i could get then please send me a link. FYI im not looking for anything larger than 250GB, i would only use the SSD for priority games and the OS so around 100GB should be fine? thanks.
  3. I'm thinking along the lines of an Intel 520 series perhaps
