I noticed that the Nvidia GTX 660 is not on the official list for supported CUDA cards, however I been informed that slightly ammending the adobe Premiere Pro CS6 txt file can fix this?
The hack will work for that.
I'll let others more qualified answer the rest.
I would go with several SSD's in place of a couple of those hard drive. Less power dissipation and zero noise. Absolutely no need for a 1 TB hard drive for the OS and applications as an example. Read Harm's Tweakers Pages.
I agree with getting a 120gb SSD for the OS. The rest should be fine unless you want to add an SSD for the cache/scratch as well. If not no biggie. Also, the Haswell 4790 is out. Slightly cheaper. Might as well drop that thing in unless you're definitely wanting OC.
Thank you for your advice I have decided to go for a Samsung 840 evo 250Gb SSD hard-drive for the OS (some of my music programs take up a lot of space on the OS-drive so it probably warrants 250Gb). Also due to a price reduction I have decided to go for the Nvidia GTX 760 which is only £30 more than the 660 but appears to have quite a performance hike. Further I have decided to stick with the 4770K incase I OC in the future!
