Recently added a triple monitor set up and still getting 60+ fps with no issues. Getting close to two years and with Raceroom Racing Experience have over 375 hours logged and no need for any further updates at this time. Triple Monitor Review

Thank you. It has been fun piecing it together and now I am contemplating a triple monitor :)

YW, I was happy to answer your questions and glad you are pleased with your first build, well done. Look on the frame of the fan for a small arrow as this will indicate airflow.

Nice looking and solid build within a reasonable budget. Doesn't get much better.

Thanks jmac, no issues at all, there is about 1/2" clearance from the side panel.

Nice build and looks good. I can't speak for Battlefield, but as far as the racing sims go the GTX970 will crush Project Cars, iRacing.

Yes I believe you can put a Mini ATX, Micro ATX or an ATX motherboard in a Mid Tower ATX case.

I like the military feel of this, well done. Good advice on the preparation. I made a bill of materials, tool list and a step by step instructions on my build to help reduce the risk of making mistakes during install. The key for me was to set a budget and vision of the system and work towards that end with the flexibility to alter the plan as long as the budget and vision stayed intact. Again, Nice Build.

Well done, stay true to what you want and things seem to work out. A larger case may have improved the cable management, but for now perhaps cable ties to group them together.

Looks very nice, only concern I have is airflow. Case looks pretty tight.

Looks like it would be a difficult but unique looking build. What are your impressions of the monitor?

Dalton334 ,A budget is a quantitative expression of a plan for a defined period of time. Perhaps what you meant was inexpensive build.

Thank you NeonThought, I loaded up iRacing, rFactor2, and Race Room Racing Experience and still have 150 GB left. I hope that someday I will need a new drive as that will mean some good racing sims have come out.

Thanks, but I think the 970 will suffice as racing sims really haven't got to the point of some other more popular games for taxing a system.

Thank you speedypig101, the MSI was also a consideration. Asus with the PCDIY YouTube videos made me lean more towards them.

Went ahead with the Pro Gaming. Got the MOBO for $129 with a $30 off when packaged with a processor ($199 for i5-6600k) for a net cost of $318 after $10 rebate from ASUS.

The PNY CS1311 -240GB compares well and is my choice at $59.99.

I was contemplating the same thing and looked at the Z170-A along with the Z170 PG and I am leaning towards the Z170 Pro Gaming. This MOBO looks like it will be perfect for what I am going to use it for (racing sims only) and my limited experience with tweaking a system, aka overclocking.

That Mobo looks like a solid alternative. What is OP? Only racing sims (3-4) will be going on this build so 500 GB SSD should be sufficient for everything.

My suggestion would be to balance out between the mobo and the graphics card. You want to get the most out of all your components and the mobo is the key to do that. A X99 or Z170 chipset may be an option.
