  2. Here you go Carbon. Got all your must haves. Not sure on your desire for HDD/SSD so I put 1 of each per OS. Also upgraded to the 780ti GPU. Rock solid.

    Let me know if you need anything changed out.
    Here is a link to video showing the radiator mounted to top in the selected case. Brackets included in the case hardware. FYI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrv9_2LxFRA

    Here is a build with GPU upgraded to the Titan. This build will last you for years. Right at 3K

  3. Use geforce gtx titan
  4. Everything is fine except change your ram for a 4x4 config with 1866 MHz and get a GTX 780/GTX 780Ti and your set
