I'd like to build an R9 280X system and i'd like you to review what i've come up with.

I've had an I Mac for about 4 years now and i thought it was time for a massive change of pace.

I'd like to build a 280x overclockable gaming system in a case like the Bitfenix Colossus M If it's out or when it's out.

Here's some parts that i've picked out.

Case: BItfenix Colossus M

MotherBoard: MSI Z87M-G43 Motherboard

Cpu: i5 4670k

Cpu cooling: Hyper 212 EVO

Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 280X Toxic Edition 3GB

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-2400C10D-8GZH 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3

Storage: Seagate barracuda 1 tb

PSU: Corsair TX-650M Modular Power Supply

Adittional Cooling: bitfenix spectre 230 mm on the bottom

That's about all.

I should ask, Is that motherboard good for overclocking?

I hope this system will work.

    very good indeed :)

    where do you live ? how much is your budget?

    maybe we can optimize it a bit
  2. Hmm, lets see here. This system should come in at a comfortable $1550 AUD with a monitor (Going off the idea that the Bitfenix colossus m will be around $130 dollars.)

    the highest price i'll go is $1600

    Now, about this optimization?
