Changed board to a h87, you aren't going to SLI so you have no need for z87, waste of money. Changed HDD from one of the least reliable to one of the most reliable. Changed the GPU a non overpriced one. I'd go with asus, msi or evga over gigabyte any day. Better case. Better PSU that is modular to keep your case clean. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
