so I'm looking to do a media sever/gaming rid in my bed room, while i wait for my hazwell build

i have a 19x16.6 with no hight limitation (any case recommendations would be great) there will b pics later




the plan is z77 board and since it will be running the a closet most likely just a AIO water cooler

i have about a 1500~$ budget for everything not including OS and accessories, case, it get connect to a 46 led 120hz tv and 5.1


i hope to have room but not need a multi GPUs but with baby on the way not sure where ill be doing most of my gaming…… i also need to be able to hold 15tbs or so (storage drives will come later)

i been looking at the following to give people an idea

Well the RAM you have looked at is a ripoff they are way overpriced the PSU is also massive overkill unless you want to go SLI/Crossfire later?

The RAM is a bit much, Personally I would (and have) go with this for the RAM

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233197

For storage I would have one of these for the OS and programs needed on start up as well as one or two games

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147193

then 5 (15 TB + 256 GB SSD total) of these for storing the media files

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136874

I would use this for the GPU as it has the best bang for buck (out performs the GTX 670 in most tasks but is cheaper than a GTX 660 Ti)
