    You would have to get the parts from other sites, because if you want to get parts from newegg only then you might have to settle with a much less powerful system which I see no point in getting if you can get a beast for the same price. So go for this build, i am sure that you would like it.

    If you like this answer then be sure to select this as the best answer as not only would it help me but it would also help others who are looking for similar answers.

    Happy PC Building :)
