after deciding to get rid of my old system rather than changeit (ive allways had a "frankenstein" machine and never a full new one!) just wanted to get opinions on the final build im looking at. much appreciation to some of the guys on here for most of the items.

not added any cooling but not planning on overclocking for now. may get tempted tho.... lol

if anything, what would be my first bottleneck in the future?

Any 790X would be good. If that's any indication, I'd get the exact same board somewhere else. There IS a reason they sold out.

If you don't overclock, any chipset is ok. If you do or plan to do, SB750 is the only way. I'm still sticking with:

Asus M4A79XTD Evo
