    Changed the board to a z87x, gives you some extra connectors and nicer features.

    Cheaper RAM.

    Changed case to a better one, feel free to change it back, I don't really care.

    Changed PSU to an appropriate one that is more trustworthy.
  3. Just changed PSU other things are really good http://pcpartpicker.com/p/31GZX
