First build for gaming, I wanted to be able to max out almost all games at 60fps in 1080p. Some parts were really expensive, for exemple, the motherboard. I bought an MSI Z97 gaming 5 motherboard and an XFX PSU in the first place but I had a ground loop issue so I had to RMA these parts and I bought some new parts to replace them. I also added a cold cathode kit inside the case to go with the red and black theme of the motherboard and the V8 cooler. Also the 7.1 Asus sound card is amazing compared to the onboard audio of the maximus VII formula motherboard.
