I haven't built a system for quite some time, around 4 years. I have kinda lost touch with which parts are the best performers at present. I will definitely be Wanting the Corsair 900D as a case and was wondering which other parts people would highly recommend. The computer parts would be bought from Ebuyer so if you could provide links that would be great. Money is no object as I only upgrade every 3-4 years. I was also looking at the Samsung 256GB 840 Pro. As the main drive. Secondary drives I have sorted already.

Any opinions would be great.

I would get someone to go to Intel's front door, give them lots of money, and get four custom, top-bin, fully-unlocked, Xeon-E5v2 chips and a suitable MB. Similar from nVidia etc.

Oh, you meant only a minor object? Back soon.

You'll be able to drop in a couple of 9970s/980s or something in a couple of years.

I will say that the case is a bit overkill too. And you've had the talk on how future proofing is a bit overrated?

There's little difference with the Pro, but I guess if you want it you can.

Thanks for the reply, yeah this is the sort of thing that I am after, Only went for the pro version of the SSD due to the longer warranty. And you are probably right about the case being overkill but in 4 years time chances are I wont have to by another one. But really thanks for the reply thats the sort of costs I thought I would be looking at.

You could also go with a 4670K/4770K, which should still be plenty.
