    I appreciate your input.

    The monitor you linked is cheaper but it's also 6ms and 60Hz, I'd much rather a monitor that's 2ms and 120Hz.

    I actually might change the psu to the one you linked.

    Not the biggest fan of Steelseries tbh...
  2. I'd personally lose the expensive peripherals. You can always get those later.

    This would be a better case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352022

    And this would be a better PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703027

    And this is a better cooling solution for the 7970: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202008

    Otherwise the rest of your build looks good.
