i'm not gonna lie
that's pretty terrible
i'd get rid of the cpu fan, ssd, and get a cheaper case to swap for an i5 4670 build
and 7950 has been lower than $150

Why get rid of the fan? Is it not necessary? I'll swap out the 7950 for the gtx760 as suggested and I'll look into a cheaper case.

wanna keep the ssd though.

You really don't need an aftermarket fan unless you plan on overclocking.

If you take 4670k or 4770k, aftermarket fan is recommended. Haswell runs hot even when not oced.

Is this better? I need a wifi adapter in the mobo and I'm not sure if this has one. Also got rid of the optical drive, can install windows through "other means".
