workstation configuration advice needed

Hello,

Next monday i am about to order components for a new workstation wich will be used for CAD and 3D softwares for architecture mostly:

-CPU:Inter Core i7 3770K
-GPU: Firepro W5000
-motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX2
-16 GB DDR3 (2x8gb)
-Case: Corsair Carbide 500R
-PSU: EVGA 750W SuperNova NEX
-dvd writter: Samsung sh-224bb
-HardDisk: OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 120gb
-Cooler: Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 CPU
-Display: Dell U2412M 24"

Before i start ordering, i would like your feedback on the configuration. The problem is that i cannot exceed this budget so i can only buy something else for the same market value.

Thank you.

GPU: go for GTX660 and for the rest of money take 16GB more, so to have 32GB in sum, also, buy some cheap 22" as the second monitor
Good Luck!

Thanks for advice, but i was going to buy another 16gb ram on my next income and buy a good gpu/cpu instead wich is harder to upgrade in the future. Isn't GTX660 a game oriented GPU? The Firepro W5000 should perform much better than gtx660 or even gtx770 in any 3D application, right?

Thanks
