So This Build Totals To $2657 Which i don't mind and the place is around the corner from mine is there anything on this build i should change and yes i will be over clocking 2500k as high as i can while stable and cable management is a pretty big thing for me so modular psu will be needed and i have no colour scheme for the build but all black would be cool so thanks and email me or post below on any help.

i like the build, The only thing that I would change is the mouse, i Bought a razer mamba not too long ago and it worked wonders for me, I haven't tried the SteelSeries Sensei Professional Laser Gaming Mouse before but i would say after i bought the mamba i wouldn't buy another mouse.

I saw the razer mamba on that website you got all your parts planned out and they have the mamba for about $60 more, cant say exactly whats better but the mamba has a 1ms response time! and its wireless and wired,

I also checked your motherboard and its sli ready so when you feel your rig is not getting that much fps in future games you can get another GTX580 and almost double your performance!

I like your rig, i saw great reviews on all your part and they will make a very good gaming pc!

Go for the steelseries, Im sure its a great mouse!

well ill say the h100 only if you have a problem with overheating.

Its a very good rig, so you can always upgrade in the future if you think you can get better performance.

But for now just stick with the rig as it is.
