Excuse my crappy photos (did this in a hurry.)
i7 3770k - A processor that works. Gets the job done for the intensity of Turbo Tax!
Arctic Silver 5 - Actually works (good temps) unlike the crap that comes on GPUs from the manufacturer.
AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 - Didn't really need anything super special and this mobo is cheap/solid.
Corsair Vengeance 8GB - Looks cool, helps me run extra Turbo Tax programs, and BF4.
Samsung 830 SSD - Use it for my boot drive/important programs, boots windows 8.1 in seconds.
WD 1TB Black - Used to store movies, games, and music.
Asus 780 Ti - Very helpful for the graphical demands of tax work, and sometimes BF4.
Creative Labs Sounds Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD - Amplifies my Beyerdynamic Dt 990 Pros
Corsair Air 540 - Extremely Easy to route cables/hide stuff. Great airflow!
Cooler Master SickelFlow - Cheap fans that blow tons of air. Can be loud if not fan controlled.
Thermaltake 750w - Least favorite part of the build might replace with a corsair 860w.
Windows 8.1 - I use startisback and have it boot into the desktop screen, (Windows 7.1) no issues so far with compatibility.
Watercooling Stuff - Keeps stuff very cool for a lot of money.
ModRight Cables - Ain't nobody got time for weaving cables!
Fan Controller - Keeps the SickleFlows from sounding like a Jet.
Logisys Green LED Stick - Lights up the entire case with a satisfying green glow.
Asus VG248QE - If you do not have a 120hz monitor, I recommend picking one up. Makes games 100x better.
Ducky Shine 3 TKL/Corsair m65 mouse - Solid work fine for what I do. (Extreme tax clicking)
Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro Headphones - Awesome sound stage and extreme clarity.
