Parts to Upgrade: Full Build

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Location: Dallas, Texas USA

Parts Preferences: i5-4670K, all else is open

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe down the road

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Basically looking to build a solid gaming PC to last awhile. Been a long time since I built one of these and looking for advice on current build.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Needed a laptop because of a lot of travel, that's done so I want to transition from mobility over power to desktop powerhouse.

Current Idea:

The massive case is so I can easily upgrade as time goes on. Only the SSD because I use external storage for anything else. Any advice would be appreciated! I want to build something that is super solid, without being ridiculously expensive.

Thanks all in advance.
