Alright THW geniuses, I'm here again to build a new system and looking for insight on what if I can/should change about my new build. The ONLY thing I'm set on and will not change is the case. But, I've gotten many great answers from the community before, and I'm looking forward to your opinions!

Case - Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow - http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Level-Edition-Gaming-...

Mobo - MSI ATX Z87-G45 Gaming - http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Motherboard-Motherboards-Z87-...

Processor - i5-4570K - http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i5-4670K-Quad-Core-Desktop-...

Vid Card - GeForce GTX 760 - http://www.amazon.com/MSI-DisplayPort-PCI-Express-N760-...

SSD - Samsung 120GB EVO-Series - http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-EVO-Series-2-...

HDD - WD Blue 1TB - http://www.amazon.com/WD-Blue-Desktop-Hard-Drive/dp/B00...

RAM - G.SKILL 8gb 1866 - http://www.amazon.com/G-SKILL-Series-240-Pin-Desktop-F3...

Power Supply - Thermaltake 700W - http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-ATX12V-Management-Opt...

CPU Cooler - Thermaltake CPU Cooler - http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Overclocking-Universa...

I'm looking to keep this in the 1400 range after taxes/shipping.

What I'm also looking for is a mechanical keyboard with cherry red mx switches and has blue backlighting (to keep with the theme of the computer!)


Thank you much!

Dru
