Hi all
My final build, I hope.
Gaming, not including keyboard, mouse, or monitor.
I will eventually overclock and prob get a 2nd video card
Please let me know if u have a better component or thoughts on it.
I will use external hd for storage for now as well and get an internal 2tb later on

Looks like a great machine

If you are looking to shave a bit off the price change out your mobo for a cheaper gigabyte or asrock one (around 140)

I have all those core components in my build (minus the 7970) and I love it. Built the rig right before Christmas and I couldn't be happier
