Need help with a computer build.

Hi Everyone,

I will be starting on a second computer build but Am just not sure what to get in parts wise.

The computer will be for gaming, video editing (1080p) , live steaming and gaming together etc..

So far I have got

Corsair H100i Hydro Series CPU Water Cooler with 240mm Radiator & fans S115x/2011/1366/FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3

16GB (2x8GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Pro Series Red, PC3-19200 (2400), Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 11-13-13-31, XMP, 1.65V

3GB EVGA GTX 780Ti Superclocked, 28nm, PCIe 3.0 (x16), 7000MHz GDDR5, GPU 980MHz, Boost 1046MHz, Cores 2880, DP/ HDMI

850W Antec High Current Gamer 0-761345-06225-1 Non-Modular, 80 PLUS Bronze, Dual Rail, 1x135mm Fan, ATX PSU

Intel Core i7 4790K, 1150, Haswell, 4 Core 4.4GHz Turbo, 5 GT/s DMI, 1.2GHz GPU, 40x Ratio, 84W, Retail

Am just missing the case,ssd and the mobo. However! I am not 100% sure about the parts I have listed if there any good? (I just went with "Hot Seller")

Budget: I don't really have a budget set but I can get anything I want as am getting "After a 10% deposit pay nothing for 9 months".

Thank you everyone!

PS if you are going to recommend parts can you please link them from Computer Hardware - Scan.co.uk since that is where I am buying from.

how about a mobo? I would suggest Asus. And i would look at better ram with lower timings. as far as a case, check this out:

NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, Matte BLK/Red - Newegg.com

I have never overclocked in my life as I don't see why. So I wont be..

Sadly that ram is not on the website (scan.co.uk) so I cannot buy it, since I am getting a loan from that company to buy all my parts.

Do I need anything else like extra cables?


Also can someone explain this cable to me "AK-CBFA04-15 4pin PWM 2 into 1 power Splitter cable"
I just want to make sure... I can connect two fans to this cable and it will power both?

Thanks
