    I'm really curious, are you saying you have already purchased this stuff? if you have, why would you spend so much money when you don't know what you're getting or what it's capable of?? Luckily it turns out you did a rather good job. You should be able to pretty much do whatever you want to do with that machine from gaming to video/music editing and the general email and web surfing.

    To be honest you would probably do better buying the same spec system already built.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.

    Hi - I think what Whoozhe is saying is that, by you own admittance, you 'suck using and installing new pc components'. Do you really want to spend all this money and risk screwing things up by assembling it yourself? It may be worth paying someone to put it together for you and let them have the responsibility.
    Also, you intend, possibly, to pay out all this cash, and then talk about overclocking it. Your attempts at overclocking, with your possible lack of knowledge, could prove to be very expensive. Regards.
    I know everything about nothing, nothing about everything and precious little about the bit in between.

    Partie has already answered your question.

    You should be able to pretty much do whatever you want to do with that machine from gaming to video/music editing and the general email and web surfing.
    I think you need to have someone build this PC for you. It appears that English is not your first language. There will a lot of things to read as you assemble this PC.

    You already have £ 1200+($2,500 USD) and that does include case, Hard drive, monitor or operating system.

    The PSU should be fine. Are there better ones ? Every day something new and better hits the market.

    As far as over clocking -There are all kinds of sites that deal with that subject.
