Nice computer! Though I would have gone with a PSU with 80 PLUS BRONZE Certification as well as a 7950 (50 bucks more) for its high overclock-ablity. The 4770K is a bit pricey and runs hotter than preferable, so I'm glad you got a 3770K. All around a really nice build for the price and good at gaming/editing.
Expensive hobby I see.
Mines not quite as impressive as ECM or TCNCs... yet.
The only word you all have said so far that I understand is "computer".
So what's happening to your Alienware, ECM?
I'd post a picture, but imgur is down right now. It's sitting right next to my 23" monitor like it always has been. My desktop PC under my desk is hooked up to the monitor now, instead of the laptop, though. I still use the laptop to bring up references for whatever I happen to be doing, and just as a useful tool. Plus, I still need it for school when that starts happening again.
Preface: I'm skeptical on the 760, it has mixed reviews. Also, I'ma need another job to pay for this.

Gee, have fun living in a cardboard box
32GB of RAM seems a bit overkill, especially with the price it's at.
Actually, not having to pay rent 'cause I live at home is helping quite a bit.
I'll just keep my mouth shut that the list I posted is only the beginning. The final produce will have 3 760s and 64gb RAM
Wait, shit, I suck at secrets.
Plan on Photoshopping pictures to put on billboards, Sakaba?
Hah, I wish I knew how to photoshop. I haven't used it in like 5 years.
But no, 4-dimensional porn, that's why I need so much RAM. Just gonna be honest.
I prefer not getting custom due to the varied success if you aren't 100% sure of what you are doing. I currently have the Origin Big O, and send it in for a tradin for the newer Big O Its almost double the price, but hey it's free labor
