Default Questions about a new build.

I'm thinking of a new build, as I mentioned here on the forums I won the Lotto, but I'm still waiting for the cheque to clear so in the mean time I'm just doing some online browseing and marking spec's Vs. prices. What do you gyes think of the build below and have you any recomendations.

INTEL I7-2700K QUADCORE 3.50GHZ 8MB 1155 available at COMPUTER orBIT LTD

Can anyone shed some light on what I will get out of this, and if it will be good for folding?
The Sandybridge core is aparrently immence for over clocking, will this be built in to the BIOS?


ASUS P8Z68-V PRO MOTHERBOARD LGA1155 available at COMPUTER orBIT LTD

COOLERMASTER STORM TROOPER CASE available at COMPUTER orBIT LTD

I was thinking 2x 1GB NVIDIA EVGA GTX 550 TI SC PCI-E available at COMPUTER orBIT LTD

16GB DDR3 1600MHZ CORSAIR VENGEANCE BLK available at COMPUTER orBIT LTD

120GB OCZ AGILITY 3 SSD SATA3 2.5" available at COMPUTER orBIT LTD

750W COOLERMASTER GX BRONZE 120M FAN PSU available at COMPUTER orBIT LTD

I was thinking 2x PIONEER 12X BLU-RAY WRITER BDR-207 OEM available at COMPUTER orBIT LTD

Have I missed anything and what do you gyes think? Should I tone it down abit and it will be with win 7 HP.

Default Re: Questions about a new build.

Is this for folding or gaming?

Either or, I would go with a Corsair PSU and the 3770k instead of the 2700k.
If the rig is for gaming then go with a 570 instead of 2 550s.
