Hello everyone and thanks in advance for your help and suggestions... Well im starting a new build and i havent been keeping up with the latest in technologies as of late.. Basically i want a fast Build, that is able to handle the tasks at hand..I do alot of video editing and encoding, and i multitask alot, i rarely play games, but if i do then i would like for it to be able to handle them quite well...I usually make a new build every 5 to 6 years, so with this build i will probably be upgrading 4-5yrs from now.. I would like to overclock just a little though maybe around 4.3-5 if possible, not anything to serious...Here are the Specs.. some things i already have and the ? marks mean havent decided on yet?

Case: Storm Trooper (full Tower)

Power Supply: Rosewill 1300W Lightning

Os : Windows 7 Professional

Ram: ? Would like to have 32Gb of memory though and would like them to be fast...havent been keeping up on these as well .. price range is from 100$ to 170$ (if its worth it in the long run) depending on the price i may buy all 8 or i may get 2 at a time...

Mobo: ?(looking at the sabretooth though) price range is from 150 to 240(maybe) (hopefully i can get a good one that will last and is able to overclock really well) and that probably have some good bells and whistles ( i wouldnt mind that)

CPU: ? Strongly looking at the 3770K (if anyone have any other suggestions feel free) (have been reading alot about the heating probs though, but this is one im still strongly looking at)

Heatsink or cooler: ? ( Been doing alot of reading the forums and the Noctua D-14 seems a solid choice) been reading alot of good about this cooler, can get it for 72 with 10% off at newegg.. also water cooling is an option as well never had it but wouldnt hurt to try if possible (h100 seems like a solid as well) so im torn between these two but alot of my favor goes toward the Noctua.. any other suggestions feel free... price range is from 70$ to 130$ at most, but if the Noctua can do pretty much what the others can do, i would just be settled with the Noctua...

SSD : ? which would be a good one to get, im looking to 200+ GB it would be my boot, dont know a quality 1 to get..

Video Card: ? I havent really been doing too much research on these, so i need help in this area alot... my Price Range is 150$ to 220$ at most would like to get a great mid range, if i can pull out an extra 30 bucks more i would...should i go with pcie 3.0?

thermal paste: ? artic silver or is there any better ones?

oh yeah advice on if the cooler would fit properly on the mobo or cpu would be appreciate and if the size of the cooler would cause me to loose a memory slot would be appreciated as well!

Well that is all i have for now if im missing anything let me know, and i really appreciate any suggestions and all of yalls help...God Bless you and Thanks alot .. oh yeah i be working 10hrs a day so if my response seems long that means im at work (work time is 3pm to 1am) so i will be checking around 2am on any new posts and responses...Peace

i took your advice and right now im leaning toward the ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE ATX Intel Motherboard and GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 3 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard, the sabretooth was in the race, but i think i may go with the Deluxe, i wish the Asus Maximus V Extreme was alot cheaper, the Asrock formula was looking tempting as well.. but i may just go with the Deluxe, have alot of bells and whistles..Well i think im 85% for the Deluxe.. now should i get Water cooling or air.. Noctua D-14 or H100 ? which would be better...

Ad i also have to find some Fast memory, what should i look for and what determines how fast it can go .. last time i was confused with the numbers 3-3-5-16< and thats all i can remember about the memory timing.. i dont know if that is fast or slow!
Well thanks for the help God Bless! so now the choices are beginning to get easier..

Asus mobo is a good choice, nothing against gigabyte is good too, which you choose is a matter of taste.
Definetely go with air cooling, i don't like water it's just too 'messy'.
As for the ram 1600 mhz is enough, and timings are a dark forest, just go with CL9 and avoid CL11

Rosewill stuff is basically newegg brand kinda like how dynex is bestbuy brand and they are either hit or miss with those. I would suggest getting a Corsair PSU they are pretty good overall.

well too late now, cause i already got it...i like the colorful leds :).. what does the numbers mean for determining how fast ram is.. like the latency if its 10-10-10-27..and my price range for a video card the highest is around 250, and i will basically only be using 1 i dont know if i would ever use 2 in the future...it depends on which is the best setup...will 2 cheaper be a lil bit better than the 1?

And for Ram i may just buy all 4 8gb together and probably wont buy any more..Im basically once i got all parts, i wont be upgrading any of the parts anytime soon or until the next 5years :)..
