So im thinking off buying a part-PC for Gaming with current games and at least a few years into the future but im totally horrible at choosing the stuff in it when given too much choices(jebus) so what i came up with ftm was:

CM Storm Stryker Gaming Big Tower
with:
XFX ProSeries Core Edition
ASUS P8Z77-V LX, Socket-1155 ATX, Z77, DDR3, 1xG3+1xG2-PCIe-x16, CFX, VGA, DVI, HDMI, UEFI
Intel® Core i7-3770K Processor Socket-LGA1155, Quad Core, 3.5Ghz, 8MB
Corsair H60 Hydro Series CPU (yes, water cooling)
Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600MHz 16GB Kit w/4X HyperX 4GB DDR3, CL9-9-9-27, 240pin
Gainward GeForce GTX 670 2GB PhysX CUDA PCI-Express 3.0, GDDR5
Crucial m4 SSD 2.5" 128GB SATA 6 Gb/s (SATA3.0), 500MB/175MB/s read/write
Seagate Barracuda® 2TB SATA 6Gb/s (SATA 3.0), 64MB Cache, 7200RPM, 3.5" + 1tb one off same brand
BenQ 24" LCD G2450HM 1920x1080, 50000:1, 2 ms, VGA/DVI/HDMI (bigger than my current TV:-)
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

At the place im looking at it all, they'll put everything together ant ship it within 5 days to me for(with Monitor/No Monitor) 1900/1650 EUR or 1500/1300 GBP. though it being a norwegian company it might be annoyingly overpriced:-P

Downgrade the i7 to the i5 3570k. Honestly, after the 3570k, you hardly see any performance increases if you're going to overclock. Only get it if you're going to be doing Video Editing and using programs like Autodesk Maya and 3Ds Max.

With the extra £70 saved, I'd invest it in 2400mhz ram modules instead of the 1600mhz's.

And get MSI GTX 670 Power Editions if you can stretch the pocket slightly more. They're the best 670's on the market imo.

Is the PSU the 850w, or the 550w version? You best make sure it's the 850w ones, otherwise you might be running a shortage of power.

well it was the 550w one, the site only has these off higher in stock atm:
Corsair TX V2 750W PSU ATX 12V V2.3, 80 Plus Bronze, Standard. 4x 6+2-pin PCIe, 8x SATA
Silver Power SP-S750 750W PSU ATX 12V V2.3, 80 Plus Bronze, Standard, 4x 6+2pin PCIe, 12x SATA, 7x Molex

the I7 is their standard version and this is because i went for the middleclass setup theyve got which is only the i7s in and im not too bothered with putting that in there and not having to upgrade for a tid bit longer
its the same case with the RAM as its their middleclass types, they dont let you not order the ram with the buildsetup as they put it together for you with a 3-year warranty included in the price
the 670 was the one they use for this priceclass, the entire setup from what i can see if made out of the card being the 670 ive got in there or upgrading to the 680 (which costs a pork and then some)
would you say the watercooling is worth it? couse i put it in as i feel like being rather safe than sorry about the computer melting down like cherno:-P

Watercooling solutions is the way to go for high-end computers like the one you're getting. Helps you reach higher clocks for that 670 and the i7 than standard fan cooling.

Yeah, defo get the Corsair 750w. Especially with the watercooling and the chances of you adding extra's (wifi, CD drives etc), 550w is the bare minimum. It's not worth the risk buying your computer with the 550w PSU and find out your computer doesn't even boot cause of the lack of power. Get the Corsair 750w PSU and you'll be safe.

yeah did that, no adding any extra cdDrives or wifi till im sure it all works:-P then i might get USB wifi if needed.
im just tired of only having a desktop to use when im finnaly rooted in one spot and not having to take it to school every day:-P which is why im getting a stationary that can keep itself properly running with current games and at least be decent for the next 3 years withouth any major changes
