Hello everyone,

I am planning to build a custom PC that I will use for architecture/design related projects. Specifically, I need to be able to 3D render quickly (with VRAY for 3DS Max & Rhino for example), multi-task with various design software programs and animate and edit videos. I am not knowledgeable about computer hardware AT ALL so would love an advice about the build. My budget is around $1,300. So far, the list below outlines the specifications that I have researched that might fit my purpose. Please, help me out! Would you recommend going with these specs? Is there anything I can save on? Or maybe I should invest in something else?

Processor
Intel Core i7-4770K
Motherboard
ASUS Z87-A
RAM
16 GB 1600MHz DDR3 (I haven't decided on brand yet)
Video Card
NVIDIA GTX 660 1020MHz
Power Supply
Corsair CX600W
SSD
120gb (something that would cost me no more than $150)
HD
1 terabyte

I am not sure I will need a water cooler either. Is it necessary?

Any thoughts/advice on this list & the build overall would be greatly appreciated!
