3770k is very good at handling anything you through at it ,it's a very good processor so yes go for that , the motherboard I haven't had any experience with but the asus p8z77 pro is the one most go for ,and the only other thing I could give you help on is the graphics card , the hd7770 is not really a great card , your better off spending an extra £30 and getting the hd7790oc with is a superb card with some great reviews , anyway I run this style setup and it runs beautifully . ;)

Oh please! For a DAW you don't need a graphics card with great 3D game performance. In matter of fact you might be happier with low-performance fanless card (less noise).

jarno's right if your only using one screen but if your using 2 or more then you do need a better graphics card but I have owned the hd7770 and only used it for a couple of months as it was a bit laggy and the hd7790 (asus chipset) preforms a lot better .
This is not a gamers comp ,it is purely a DAW and that's all it will ever be but running HD graphics on 3 screens with Cubase 7 is a dream .

anyway good luck with your build !

Of course not. I have never bought a gaming graphics card on a DAW ... and still never had graphics card performance related issues.

OTOH. Can you provide any Cubase performance figures regarding hd7770 vs. hd7790oc?
