  1. Look pretty good to me, I'm sure some will find minor changes, but over all it looks good

    Thanks abbadon!
  3. Not a problem (:
  4. 1. Remove that soundcard
    2. You should use a workstation class gpu like a quadro.
    3. Get a good 3.5inch hdd. That scorpio isnt going to have very much performance at all.

    Any specifics on the quadro gpu? to my understanding, gpu's wont change the ASrockZ77 motherboard I want to use correct?
  6. Get 2x8gb, should cost the same. Some of cooler master's psus are not good, which model is that? And Maybe change the case to something with front usb 3.
