    hard drive. not 3tb but realistically you cant fill them up

    ram

    case. its white but matches the build theme i got going along

    now for your build, this is what id change

    -you dont need that much wattage
    -the i5 is a better gaming CPU
    -there are better SSDs
    -fast ram is useless
    -a pile of ram is useless for gaming
    -690s are overkill. go grab a 7970 for high res instead
    - i wouldnt get one of those panels, given warranty can be questionable.
    -if money is no option, i can tack another 300 dollars to the rig and it wont affect performance one bit
  2. Wow! i never even thought about any of that.
    thank you very much for your detailed anwser! i apreciate the effort and thoughtful layout.
    Thank's :) you've made me re-think the build.
  3. I'm willing to listen to any other's who wish to reply with a better anwser or alternative opinion!
    since i won't be building this for another two weeks.
    i've already bought the case - i forgot to mention that :/
    would sincirely apreciate any other feed back and alternative opinion's! thank you
