Thumbs up New PC Build! Need Opinions!

Hey! I'm building my new computer over the coming weeks. Since I am in the UK, my budget is 850 for everything including peripherals, monitor, etc, which it roughly $1400. I'd like some feedback on it! Im looking to build it for general gaming purposes, with some small video recording and editing too. The specs are as followed:

CPU: Intel i5-3570K
GPU: MSi GTX 760
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77-DS3H
RAM: 8GB Corsair Low Profile Blue (2x4GB)
PSU: Seasonic 520W Bronze
Case: CiT Neptune Blue
Cooling: 3x120mm Coolermaster Sickleflow Fans
Optical Drive: DVD/RW 24x
Hard Drive: Seagate 1TB
Monitor: AOC i2367FH

Thanks in advance!

My System Specs


Seems like a good build! If you have a little bit of money left you should invest in some good CPU cooling to push that CPU a little more and get the most out of your PC! :)

if you want to do some video editing, you should go for at least 12 GB of memory, 16 would be even better. I didn't look to see what your price comes up to, but do you have much room to play with money? What do the listed parts total to?

I would spend a bit more for a better case. May be a Corsair 200R? While I agree with draemn in regards to additional memory, I say test it with 8GB first and see how you like the work flow process. If it's too slow, you got 2 more slots for upgrades. Which model of Seagate HDD you're looking at exactly?
