First time build. What can I change to make it better?

Hello everyone, this is my first post and my first build so Im just wondering what I can do to make the system better or if this is good enough for gaming. Also Im interested in overclocking the system so I would like some input on what I can do with this machine. Well heres a list of what I put together.

CM Storm Cooler Master case
ASRock z87 OC Formula motherboard
Intel 4770k processor
G.Skill Ripjawz DDR-3 1600 16gb ram
2- MSI GTX 760 OC 4gb video cards running SLi
Thermaltake Extreme Water 3.0 CPU liquid cooler
Samsung 840 Evo 250gb SSD drive
Seagate Berracuda 1tb HDD
Seasonic X-850 SS-850KM3 850 watt power supply
LG Blu-Ray Modisc 3d blu-ray burner

Any input would help. Like I said this is my first build and Im new to overclocking. The only overclocking I have done so far is only what the board presets has and I only got it to 4.3GHz so far. Thanks

  1. Well you have some weird parts like sli 4gb 760. There are many overclocking guides on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qcta3RStYSM or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CHs5_TdpXE the second link has more views cause its linustechtips
  2. Stupid question, weird parts like how? Should I have gone with a different video card?
  3. Best answer
    Yeah you should have gotten a 780 for the gpu and I dont think you need a blu ray drive.
  4. So should I sell the 2 gtx 760 and go foe a gtx 780? Will the PSU be enough or do I need to upgrade that as well? The blu-ray was just an impulse buy lol Ill never use it.
  5. Yeah, if I were you I would get the 780, you might want to get other suggestions though but I would go for the 780 because its way better then sli 760. Also your psu can handle the 780. It can actually handle sli 780.
