Great build! But since this is a gaming machine i would drop the 16Gbs of ram, Replace it with 8, And spend the money you saved on the 780Ti

Thank you for your response. I was actually going to buy 780Ti but i like how the lightning looks. Im actually going to buy another lightning and do SLI. I have no idea how. But i will google how to do it. And watch videos on youtube. I put my computer together just by watching youtube videos and it works great. I have never even opened a computer before. I hope it stays working well.

I'm a bit late, but yes, drop it down to 8GB unless you plan on getting multiple monitors and multitasking, upgrade to the 780Ti like he said.

An R9-290X is a nice alternative. Just wanted to throw that out to you.
