Default Take a look at my build

Hey guys, I will be spending around 900 on my next computer build.

The main things I want it for is, Rendering HD videos, Animation and Gaming
I want to get the best hardware I can for the money. I also want the case to look good and so on. So here are the parts I have researched to be good for what I want.

Case - NZXT M59 - Already bought this

PSU - XFX P1-750B-NLG9 Black Edition 750W

CPU Cooling - Corsair H70 Hydro

CPU Intel CPU Core I7 2600K Unlocked Sandy Bridge (Will be overclocking)

Motherboard MSI P67A-GD55 P67

Memory/RAM Corsair Memory Vengeance 16GB DDR3 1600 MHz

HDD - 2TB Samsung HDD

Crossfired GPU - x2 XFX HD 5870s

Fan Controller NZXT Sentry LX Fan Controller

Other Fans x5 blue LED Fans

What do you guys think about this and do you have and suggestions ??
The motherboard there lets me overclock the processor with a button on the board so ill be doing that.

Thanks
Luke

That thing is going to be a beast. You could go with 12GB of memory to take advantage of the triple channel memory operation offered by the Intel I7 CPU.

See I was thinking about this. I'm not sure to go with more GB or that.

Are you planning on doing photo/video editing? If so, the large amount of memory would be desirable. If it's purely a gaming rig, then 12GB would be more than enough.

I see.

I would suggest going with 12GB. It is a good amount for video editing and can run in triple channel. If you feel you need more down the road, you could always add one more module to bring it up the 16GB.
