    Birthday Build Suggestions?

    Any Suggestions?

    Here's the skinny on the parts, I am still deciding on a power supply that will exceed slightly the needs. I am eyeing a Sea something 850W... I just want to ensure it will power this all and when it degrades it will still hold up...

    1 - COOLER MASTER HAF XB RC-902XB-KKN1 Black Steel body, Front Mesh, Plastic bezel ATX Desktop Computer Case
    1 - ASUS P8Z77-V LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
    1 - Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I73770K
    1 - CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M4A2400C10
    1 - ASUS GTX670-DC2-2GD5 GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
    2 - Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDCR120GB-DX7 2.5" 120GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
    1 - ASUS Black Blu-ray Burner SATA BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS
    1 - NZXT Kraken X60 RL-KRX60-01 280mm Ultra Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
    2 - Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition CO-9050009-WW 140mm High Airflow Case Fan

    Now my budget calls for $2600 maximum. I obviously want to cut but still remain with a solid system. I've taken it down quite a bit to alleviate spending my whole entire budget on this. I want some room for unexpected things like lighting, misc things like clips/brackets etc... It will be a very well managed cord system without a lot of room for movement. So extra money will be needed for that stuff and if I decide on any lighting.

    I will only be doing some video conversion, dvd-br burning, and wow in multiboxing mode - pwnboxer (up to 7 windows.) I want very fast and solid FPS and hopefully around 45-70FPS + in any 1 given window. Tips and tricks help here.

    I have spent about 43 hours online researching reviews etc... finding the best bang for your buck items... But if you see anything right away that jumps out or long term things that concern you, please tell me so I can re-evaluate. Constructive criticism is great!

    Ok have at it!

    The HAF XB is a wierd case are you sure you want a box over a tower?

    The following components are overkill: P8Z77-V, 3770K, 16GB RAM @ 2400 Mhz, AF140 case fan.

    If anything, you should be upgrading the graphics card first to top of the line (7970, 680, 7970 GE).
