Build for 2D/3D graphics editing (mATX)

Hello everyone,

My sister is to become a professional 2D/3D graphics designer and I have composed a PC build for her. Unfortunately, she does not have much room for a PC, so it has to be mATX, I guess. Could you have a look? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/krix/saved/2Lxbt6

edit: She is not going to overclock at the moment, which explains BOX PSU fan, but I have chosen parts so that it would be possible if necessary (BOX PSU would be replaced then).

Best regards, Chris

  • Intel Core i7-4770K w/ MSI Z87M-G43: Based off the older "Haswell" architecture. Current equivalent for non-overclocking would be Intel Core i7-4790.
  • Kingston KHX18C10AT3K2/16X: Alternative with similar specs, low profile and less cost. G.SKILL F3-1600C9D-16GAR.

Thanks, I'll think it over. Won't it be hard to keep the whole thing cool if I overclock in such a small case (mATX)?

If space is tight, you can consider slightly smaller coolers such as Thermalright TRUE Spirit 90M Rev.A . With that said, I haven't bothered overclocking processors in years...
