Hiii OCN! Was wondering if anyone had any suggestion on this build. It would be for gaming and some photoshopping and stuff. Gaming mostly though haha.

1. Purpose of computer: Games (mostly), schoolwork, some photoshopping
2. Budget:Roughly $1000
3. List which parts you have and/or which parts you are considering:

CPU: i5 -2500k OCed Perhaps to maybe 4.5ghz+ (trying to hit that 5ghz)?
Mobo: Asus P8p67 PRO
GPU: Maybe Sapphire's 6950 2gb Unlocked to 6970?
(But a high chance to do a crossfire in the future) Or maybe MSI since it's cheaper.
Hard drive: Samsung 1TB F3
Ram: 8GB G.Skill DDR3 1600
PSU: Antec TP-750
Case: Lian Li's K62
Optic (CD/DVD/Blu-ray): DVD/CD Combo (Asus)
Monitor (size&resolution): 20"+
Cooling: Cooler Master 212+? (Would that be good for overclocking?) or should I go extreme with either noctua nh-d14 or silver arrow?

Should I go for the 212+? Or should I upgrade and go for the noctua or thermalright?

So, would this fit a $1000 budget? Not sure yet, trying to find some really good deals on everything. How would you rate this build for gaming and stuff?

Thanks everyone!

Your call. It does have a window. I'm pretty sure it would fit one. I think that would be strange if it didn't.

Oh, didn't see that it had a window. Apparently according to the forum on Tomshardware, the Storm Scout has a max clearance of length 10.6" (without modding) and the card (according to the same forum) is 275mm = ~10.8"
