  1. Its perfect, literally no objections at all. You'l be quite happy with this rig.

    If Crossfire/SLI is a possibility down the line (which the board can support), would get a 750W PSU.
  2. yea looks good. i like IPS monitors but that's just me.

    you could also get the sandisk extreme 240GB for the same price. it uses toggle MLC nand instead of TLC nand. either way you wouldn't notice a difference.
  3. I like your build a lot and I'm sure you will be happy with it. If I were to do it myself though, I would choose this:

    For the same price, you're getting a better motherboard, faster GPU and a larger semi-modular PSU.

    I also think you should go for an IPS monitor, Dell has some for a reasonable price.

    Good luck!
  4. i would change the 840 into an 830
    the regular 840 is not on the same level as the 830's speed and the 830 is cheaper
