Great build. The only thing you are missing is a SSD for faster booting/loads/saves.

The motherboard is quite expensive, perhaps a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It saves you $100. Wait! Here's a $110 SSD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


I was kinda worried about other brands reviews and reputation for their motherboards, but i noticed asus has mostly good feedback. Have you had good experiences with gigabyte or other brands?

Motherboards are very complex pieces of equipment. It seems all of them can have problems. Even your Maximus has about 14% bad reviews.

I've had very good experiences with MSI and Gigabyte and stick to just using those now.

Looks awesome to me :-) Only thing I'd change (least important component arguably) is the writer - I've found Samsung drives to be far more reliable. Possibly also ASUS - I've never tried one of their writers.
