  1. Purpose?
  2. I say cough up the extra 20 dollars and get the full version, not the OEM. Will be less headaches that way.

    Edit: And the thermal paste that will come with the Corsair CPU cooler will be more than good enough.

    This, OEM is locked to one motherboard only.

    This build is all wrong then. There is no way you can play games on this without a gpu.

    There is no point of LGA 2011 in games. The i7-4770k should be able to run photoshop well, you don't need an Ivy Bridge-E considering it's only "little photoshopping."
    Stick with aircooling. It's quieter, cheaper, and performs very close.
    Added a real gpu. The GTX 780 is a beast and should play games extremely well.
    Allows for future SLI.
    Includes a high-end 1440p monitor for the beautiful pictures. If you want to stick to 1080p, then grab this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vs239hp

    thanks for this build everything looks perfect except for the gpu ;D that's why i didn't put it in. il buy a wind-force gtx 780 ti, or should i get the oc edition ;D?
  8. The 780 TI is a great card. However, I would rather wait until aftermarket coolers come out.
