People keep telling me 8GB is the sweet spot at the moment.
Also, I think I have the same Dell monitor and that setup where the monitors don't match :D
Always buy desktops, laptops lose their luster fairly quickly. My old Macbook Pro collecting dust is a testament to that.
Nice! But, will it blend?
Yeah, I've got two 500GB internal HDD's already in my current system. Will probably upgrade to SSD's in the future.
Haha, always right.
Got it, thank you!
Okay. To start, I planned on keeping the fans in the front and back, and adding two 140mm's to the top as exhaust. My tower sits on the floor, so would a bottom intake be a good idea?
Noted, sorry about that.
I don't plan on overclocking, so should I purchase something else?
Is the Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor worth getting from a Phenom II X4 965? Is it worth getting the i7 yet or will the 4690 perform for games into the future?
The 4690K seems a little expensive, so should I get a previous generation or just suck it up and buy the 4690K? Thank you.
Can you recommend a Mobo other than the one listed? Newegg has that one listed and the reviews have a lot of DOA's.
I really like ASUS or Gigabyte, and $100-$150 would be a good price if you can recommend any. Thank you.

Oops, I'm a newb lol.
So, plug in two 6-pin connectors then??
Maybe it's just the directions specifying to plug the proper connectors to all of their cards in general.
Anyway, I have the MSI AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB GDDR5, 256 Bits. Here is the link to where I bought it from:
It's an MSI Radeon card, and it has a 6pin and and 8pin connector.
So, the video card and 8gb of ram should be okay with this build?
I have the 212 EVO and it is perfectly fine, but is a monster of a cooler and was an absolute beast to install. It covers two of my four ram slots so make sure you have room for it.
