    help with computer build.

    So i need some help because i'm kinda new to building computers and it would be awesome if you could look it over and say what you thin about it if i have done something wrong and so on.
    And because i'm kinda new to buildning i don't realy know what works with what so i pickt what looked good.
    Also with the case i realy don't know how big it would have to be so if you know what would fit this spec please tell me i'm not whery good at this thing yet. It would be awesome if you could tell me if you know some stuff that are just as good but cheaper.
    I'm looking to build something worth around 2400$ or 1800 euro.

    CPU: INTEL CORE I7 3820 3.6GHZ 10MB S-2011
    CPU Cooler: CORSAIR H55 HYDRO SERIES LIQUID COOLING S-1155/1156/1366/2011/AM3
    Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 WS X79 S-2011 ATX
    Memory: CORSAIR 16GB DDR3 VENGEANCE QUAD 1866MHZ CL9 (4X4GB)
    Storage: WD RED 3.5" 3TB SOHO NAS SATA/600 64MB

    Power Supply: CORSAIR HX650 MODULAR GOLD 650W

    Thanks to everyone who decide to help. =)

    Check the reviews on that PSU - it's awful. This one will do far better:

    http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Enthus...=corsair+tx650

    If you want to save $100 on your MOBO, go with http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-P9X79-201...pr_product_top instead.

    There are other places you could cut costs without losing any significant performance, but I have to go to work now.

    The 3570k is unlocked for overclocking and is the current favorite gaming CPU
    The ASUS mobo is really nice I have used it in a build I made in December.
    Anything past 8 gigs of RAM you will not notice
    Why you need a 3tb HDD is beyond me I would get a SSD for main programs and store all your files on a 1tb HDD
    I personally dislike Gigabyte and all their products they are a cheap brand to me XFX have always worked wonders for me and I kept the same model you had picked.
    Trust the HAF X is too big I have this case myself and really wish I had gone with the midsized one Perosnally i have used 2 of the Corsair cases in my last 2 builds.
    XFX power supply is more than enough power for this build and it's a real quality Power supply and highly rated

    A bit under budget but it is a good start.

    For gaming nothing the 17 has hyperthreading which doesn't do anything for gaming atm. I7 is used for rendering 3D modeling and whatnot.
