Was looking to put together a system that can run most games on ultra at 1440p while live streaming for the next few years. Also plan to do a fair bit of overclocking, of course. Will upgrade to sli later down the road. All feedback is welcomed. Thanks in advance.

If you can afford it it's a 10/10 PC. Personally I wouldn't spend that much just to play games on max settings at 1440p.

Those coolermaster case fans are loud as ****. Would not recommend getting those.. since it is not pwm unless you have a fan controller.

NZXT, Lian Li or Corsair case imo, much better build quality.

you might want to get different ram the heatsinks may interfere with that Noctua NH-D14 and you could get a Western Digital Blue 1TB for less than the price of that WD Black 500GB.

AS5 is a waste of $8 when you'll be getting NT-H1 for free. Nice PSU, but at $170 through Amazon Prime they claim it "usually ships within 2 - 4 weeks."

Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

Pretty good. I think mine is a little better, though. Having a 500GB hard drive is a fail.

Just one GPU huh?

I'd prefer 780 6GB x2.

Ok, first great call on the 1tb hd. I plan on gaming at 2000p sometime down the line and will add another video card in sli when I do so. I have been assured that the vengeance pro sticks will fit under the nh-d14, and as far as as5, I hear from multiple sources that it works better than any stock paste. Dont really see the point of upgrading the ssd from evo to pro. As far as the case fan noise, first time i've heard that complaint. I'll have to look into that. Hard to ignore all the good reviews with that case. Appreciate the feedback guys.
