I see you going for the somewhat expert OS install on SSDD so let's hope you have support handy for that.
It is the first time I'm building a computer and I would like to be sure thatt this setup is problem-free and relatively adequate for my use.
I'm mostly doing heavy Photoshop work with some Premiere work, and I'm gaming only occasionnally.

Is there anything unneccessary or is there a bottleneck somewhere?
More importantly, is there a serious compatibility problem?
Thank you very much!
Thank you for your good responses!
Maybe I'm indeed going to overclock it so it seems the K is fine.
My concern is more about the GPU, isn't that a little over the board as I don't think I'll be playing a lot of heavy games? Is the 660 or the HD7870 (or even slightly lower) still acceptable?
