I already bought these parts, I just was wondering what people thought about it. It will be used for gaming, video filming and editing, surfing the web, watching videos, and Python programming.

ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Motherboard
Seagate 2TB 3.5 7200RPM SATA
Kingston KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX DDR3 (16GB of RAM total if it's hard to tell)
Windows 7 Professional (so I can have more than 16GB of RAM)
LGELECOEM LG 12X Blu Ray Burner
Corsair 600T Graphite ATX Case White
PCPower Silencer 760W ATX PSU
ASUS GTX 560Ti 448 Cores PCIE
Corsair H60 Liquid Cooler

Solid build. Add in a SSD boot drive and it's a great build.

Looks great! Dont be scared to throw another fan on that H60 so it has a push/pull effect going on for even better cooling, especially if you overclock down the road it will surely help.

What these two said, 2nd fan on the rad, and an SSD and that is a solid performer, nice choices not one short cut to save a few $
