Hello everyone,

I'm looking to build a Gaming mATX build. Why mATX? Well, I fell in love with a computer case, the Corsair Obsidian 350D. Main problem, I live in Puerto Rico and some stores don't ship here. :( 

I was thinking in buying these.
I currently have two 8gb 1866MHz sticks Corsair Vengance 10-11-10-27. I was going to use them since I don't want to spend $200 in new ones. If you guys insist, I'll think about it.

CPU - Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core or Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core

CPU Cooler - Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid

Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H Micro ATX LGA1150 or any other you guys want to suggest.

Memory - Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory

GPU - Undecided, 780ti or wait for the 800 series.

Storage - Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" SSD

Power Supply- Corsair 860W ATX12V / EPS12V

Case - Corsair 350D Window MicroATX Mid Tower Case

Case Fans - Corsair Air Series AF120 Performance Edition (2-Pack) x 2 (3? Even though only 7 fit)

PSU Cables - Single Sleeved Blue - Trying to find them at a good price.

PLEASE HELP!

Quick edit, YES I AM going to OC. I currently have an AMD Build OC at 4.6 stable. Wish I could get them same (or MORE) with Intel.

Go Asus Maximus VI Gene Get The 780Ti And Go With A Corsair Neutron GTX SSD


You don't think I should wait for the GTX 800 series? They seem promising lol. Also, the GENE looks like a great Mobo but I don't know if it's much different from this one, is it?. Also Samsung's SSD seems faster and more promising (to me ofcourse!).

Actually If You Dont Mind Going ATX Form Factor The Maximus VI Hero Is A Personal Fav Of Mine. But If You Want A The Matx Form Factor Check Out The Asus Gryphon
And When The 800 Series Are Relesed Id Think That The Lower End GPUs Will Be Realesed First And The SSD Go With Whatever You Like



DONT FORGET TO BEST SOLUTION IF I HELPED



I currently have a Sabertooth 900FX and 660ti SLI. AMD FX 8350 OC to 4.6
That means I can patiently wait for the 800 series, but I don't know if it's worth the wait...

Really Good Build Since You Have 2 660Ti s Wait For 800 Series And That PSU Needs Upgrading


Thanks, I was prob going to build the mATX with the Intel and move the 660ti's. Not sure yet. I am tired of AMD, I see all the nice performance with i7 and then the FX-8350 gets kicked apart.

Anywho, the one I REALLY LOVE is the 350D. The minimalistic design is killing me.
