Hi,

Would love to know if this setup is sweet and will function well with no issues to run Mountain Lion. Will be used for gaming (on windows 7) and some HD video editing in the future. This will be my first build from the ground up, all advice appreciated!


Case:
Corsair Obsidian Series Black 650D Mid Tower Computer Case (CC650DW-1)

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K Quad-Core Processor 3.5 GHz 8 MB Cache LGA 1155 - BX80637I73770K

Motherboard: Gigabyte Intel Z77 Dual Thunderbolt ATX Motherboard with BT4.0/Wi-Fi (GA-Z77X-UP5-TH​)

Graphics Card: ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II OC Edition 2048MB GDDR5, DVI, DVI-D, HDMI, DisplayPort, Overclocked GPU and GPU Tweak Utilities PCI-Express 3.0 Graphics Card Graphics Cards GTX680-DC2O-2GD​5

SSD: Samsung Electronics 840 Pro Series 2.5-Inch 256 GB SATA 6GB/s Solid State Drive MZ-7PD256BW

Power Supply:Corsair Professional Series HX 850 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold (HX850)

RAM:Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A160​0C10)


Also adding in an Bluetooth 4.0 USB Micro adapter.

Skipping out on a wifi adapter as I will run on ethernet.

Let me know if there is anything missing haha

Will be adding another SSD down the track for dual boot windows.

Like to make sure this will be suitable for upgrading in the future.

Would be great if I could hear some feedback of any improvements or things that may not work. Or just shout out quickly giving the ok to go ahead, anything would be appreciated :)

Peace

PSU is way overkill. 500W-600W would be plenty.
