do u need a keyboard/mouse/monitor/OS?
are u planning to SLI/CF/Overclock?

I do not plan to overclock i have a already a mouse and a keyboard i also have 3 asus monitors but no os so it would be great if there was an os included in the build. I may do some sli and crossfire later but not sure. Hope this helps.

I am not sure but I have heard that windows 7 better than windows 8 but apart from that it seems like a fantastic build.

it depends on personal preference, whether u prefer 7 or 8, both cost more or less the same
