  1. Sorry I wasn't able to complete my list I was called away yesterday but here are the specs I got so far I know i'm blowing a LOT on my GPU CPU and MB but I feel that's my core the rest will be added in time but I need a lot of help on the others because this is my "first build". Thank you, to anyone experienced or not who gives feedback to this topic!

    I will take any thoughts on possible downgrades into consideration if they can withstand the obstacles presented such as 1155 socket MB with 2600k etc.
