Hello gents and ladies,

I previously thought that I was done with choosing my component list, but I decided that I needed some more input on if this build is overkill.

Purpose: The purpose of this build is to play next-gen games with ease. When I say ease i'm referring to ULTRA settings. However, I would like the overall speed of the PC to be extremely fast.

the only thing I see is if you are planning to over clock, try a i5 sandy bridge, (i think thats a sandy bridge) they have better performance on over clock and heat control, that is why people still want them. Also with your power supply get a modular one with at least a Gold if not platinum rating. But this could be old info Im throwing at you but look up the i5 and the i7 and check the tops and overclock. But for heat and stable usage you should get a platinum rated PS, I didnt look into your, so maybe you have that already
hope this helps
