Hmm, I'll give it a shot when I can. But yeah, haven't had anything less than an i7 for awhile now. Great perform ance all around.

Thanks! No real reason, must've not put any thought into it when I placed it I guess.

A lot the parts I went with were pretty common, and honestly this build has been done here like 4 times in terms of main components. Idk, if it ain't broke don't fix, right?

That's true. I was only able to fit my old mid-tower build down there with the front hanging off a good 4/5 inches.

Yeah, its not bad. I've seen these desks everywhere, they're a good price and get the job done. Only downside, is that I really can't fit my PC on the desk to see the lighting. :/

Yeah, makes sense. You could upgrade other parts later on w/ that mobo too, so not a bad choice.

Hmm, not really sure. For me, this'll last a good while for what I need it to do. But honestly, I have no real idea if you mean in terms of the grand scheme of things. All I know, is that right now this is one of the best CPUs out there, and with its price slowly coming down I thought I'd get it.

What do you mean, as in performance?

Well, a better gfx card wouldn't hurt for longevity sake, but obviously that's all up to you and your budget. Especially if you want to keep up with the newest games coming out. Maybe a higher watt PSU, specifically a Gold/Platinum EVGA one at 750ish watts for use later on with upgrades and builds later on. Also, that'd help if you decide to go for a more expensive GPU/SLI and such.

Like said before, it looks alright except for the PSU. I'd recommend a 650/750 watt EVGA G2 one. 750 if you want to upgrade parts later on or use in a different build and such. Once again, as long as it's in your budget.

Pretty nice looking, however, I'd recommend going for an aio water cooler for cooling. If it's in your budget, of course. Maybe the NZXT Kraken or Corsair H100/100i. Whatever fits I guess, but those two get the best rep.

What he said, most specifically labeled "gaming" headsets are usually pretty overpriced and not worth it.

Build looks good so far, but I have 1 question. You could up it a little more in some areas, but what's your budget? If you have one, that is. Also, in regards to headphones, a cheap pair that I have that are really durable and sound great, are the LG g230. They go for a great price and I'd definitely recommend them. If you mean monitor mounting, ehhhh... I don't really see it being worth to anyone, but that's just me.

You could definitely cut the price down a bit by choosing a different mobo, it sticks out like a sore thumb. Overall, great build though, if that's the mobo you want go for it, but it's really the only thing I can critique in the slightest.

Alright, so you're saying having one intake fan, PSU, radiator, gfx card and one back exhaust fan is sufficient? Or would more intake be worth it for that many?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Overkill PC, suggestions/comments?"

Alright, I'll look into the power supply and moniter. But anyway, the fans were my main concern, if what I have currently in too much, what do you think a good setup would be, In terms of amount and setup?

Alright, fair enough. Makes sense to get 16 if you need it.

Yeah, looks about as tight as you could get it. What do you mean by multitasking though? If your just having a program/game up and then maybe Skype or a video, etc, you could probably get only 8gb of RAM and your good, just to shave a bit of cash. Overall, great budget build either way. (SSD too, but you said you plan to later on.)

Thanks! Bean revising this list over the last few weeks. Anyway, my first thought on M.2 is that they're a little more expensive than a SATA 6gb SSD. However, do you think it's worth it for the extra price?
